Plantain Frittata (Plantain and Egg Frittata) is a delicious breakfast of plantain and eggs cooked slightly different. It’s so easy to make yet so tasty.


Frittata is an egg based Italian dish similar to an omelette or crustless quiche which is usually enriched with additional ingredients like meats and vegetables.

Borrowed from the Italian dish described, Plantain Frittata is a Plantain and egg dish which is made by cooking fried plantains, eggs, veggies and meats together in a baking dish as a casserole in the oven or cooked slowly on the stove top.

Plantain frittata is an omelet in which vegetables, plantains, and sometimes meat are mixed into the eggs and cooked together. The mixture is then baked or slowly cooked on the stop till the omelet is set and cooked through. 

Don’t be intimidated by the long list of ingredients. These are ingredients you probably have in your pantry: It’s really an easy dish to put together. 

This is my take on how to make plantain and egg frittata. Often times, the plantains are cut into round or oval slices and carefully arranged on top of the eggs. However, I’ve simplified the method here by cutting my plantains into cubes and just spreading it over my eggs. Saves me a few seconds!

Other additions you can have in your frittata

  • Potatoes
  • Cheese
  • Spinach
  • Meat – Often times, processed meat like hotdog slices or ham 


  • Feel free to adjust the spice level to your taste
  • Take care not to overcook the frittata, as the texture can become tough and dry.
  • For a healthier twist, feel free to bake the plantain instead of frying it. Though, I personally like to fry my plantains rather than bake them because frying keeps them juicier.
  • Feel free to add any other vegetables you have at hand or any other protein like meat, chicken, or shrimps.

Feel free to add more or less and let this recipe bring out not just your culinary skills but also your creativity.
