This Instant Pot Chard and Sweet Potato Frittata happened thanks to one of those days when I had ingredients to use up and didn't know quite what to do with them.

Instant Pot Chard and Sweet Potato Frittata
- 1 Instant Pot or pressure cooker
- 1 cake pan to fit inside your pressure cooker with a 2 cm clearance all around it, ie it must be 2 cm smaller in diameter than the diameter of your pressure cooker
- 6 large eggs
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- 1 large handful chopped rainbow chard or whatever chard you've got
- 50 g sweet potatoes very thinly sliced use a peeler rather than a knife, to get them as thin as possible, if you don't want to do that, increase the cooking time to about 25 minutes
- 40 g cheddar grated, I tend to use mature cheddar
- Beat the 6 eggs with the sea salt and paprika. Stir in the chard until well mixed. Stir in the sweet potatoes and half of the cheese (use only half if you're going to brown it after, otherwise use all the cheese).
- Pour into the Instant Pot cake pan, grease the pan first by brushing a bit of extra virgin olive oil all over the inside.
- 250 ml cold water in the inner pot. Trivet in place. Cake pan on trivet.
- Lid on. Steam release pointing to sealing if you don’t have a self-sealing lid (and if you don’t, check out the Instant Pots with self-sealing lids, so handy!).
- Pressure cook 20 minutes, high pressure.
- I did a natural pressure release as I was busy but it would have been okay to do a pressure release after about 5 minutes on Keep Warm. You can quickly transfer it to the grill or air fryer (205ºC or maximum temperature for 4 minutes should do it) with the rest of the cheese to brown the top if you want
Frittata is a great way to use up ingredients.
Think of it as: as long as you have 6 eggs and a potato, you can make a frittata happen!
Just add whatever you have that needs using up that you think you'll enjoy and use the timings below.
Don't have sweet potato? Use a normal potato.
What peeler do I use to get the potato super thin?
I have a potato peeler I love!
In fact, I love it so much I've gone through many of them.
Well, it seems to either disappear, end up in the green bin or have encounters with spoons.... who remembers the spoon-peeler incident of 2013?
If you remember the above photo? Yes, it is from 2013. Crazy, eh?
This OXO Good Grips Y Peeler below is the peeler I use over and over again and, every time it has an affair with a spoon, gets lost or goes in the green bin, I buy the same one again.

What's that fancy Instant Pot in the photos?
That's the new Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus that has just arrived in Europe.
Huge screen with progress indicators, tons of new presets, dial, steam release switch, self-sealing lid, steam diffuser... the list of features is long.
But, my favourite feature?
The inner pot has handles!!

What cake pan do I use?
I use the cake pan (broiler) from the Instant Pot Steamer Set that Instant Pot UK sells on amazon.
It's a very handy set, the long-handled trivet is very useful too.
