Slow Cooker Goats Cheese and Red Onion Frittata #SlowCookedChallenge

Slow Cooker Goats Cheese and Red Onion Frittata #SlowCookedChallenge

I’m not sure how September is here already, time has really flown for me. A whirl of summer holiday activities for the children, a short holiday, and it seems the summer is nearly over as the leaves are turning reddish brown and the nights are drawing in.

My youngest is also about to start Reception and it is time for me to get prepared! The slow cooker will undoubtedly come to my aid, as always, as I can leave it cooking and return to a hot meal ready for us all.

With the arrival of September and slow cooker season, it is also time for the return of the Slow Cooked Challenge, the linky run by Janice from Farmersgirl Kitchen and I.

While I managed to keep slow cooking over the summer, now is the time for slow cooking to come to the fore. Check out Janice’s great recipe and method for slow cooked ham for cold cuts now.


Today I’m sharing a recipe for a slow cooker goats cheese and red onion frittata, which only takes a couple of hours to cook and would be perfect for when you are short on time.

While I was on holiday in France in August I enjoyed a lot of warm goats cheese salads and so they inspired me to use goats cheese here.

Frittatas are so versatile as you can use whatever ingredients you have in the fridge. I used red onion and red pepper with my goats cheese this time. They’re a great recipe for clearing out the fridge.

  • 6 medium free-range eggs
  • 50 ml semi-skimmed milk
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 1 large red onion cut into wedges
  • 1 red pepper sliced
  • 1 tsp olive oil to oil the pot
  • A couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 70 g goats cheese I used goats cheese with rind


  • Whisk the eggs and milk together in a jug and season.
  • Oil the inside of the ceramic slow cooker lot to prevent sticking. Alternatively you could line the pot with baking parchment. 
  • Place the onion and pepper in the pot and pour over the egg mixture. Slice the goats cheese and place the pieces on the top, pressing them in slightly. Place the fresh rosemary sprigs on top.
  • Cook on high for approx 1 hour to 1.5 hours or until the edges of the frittata are brown and the eggs are all cooked through. I used a skewer to test the centre.
  • Cut the frittata in half with a knife and use a fish slice to remove the two halves of the frittata from the pot. Or, if you lined the pot with baking parchment, lift it out. 
  • Serve with a green salad and crusty bread.

Looks amazing, Lucy. I’ve never thought of cooking eggs in the Slow Cooker, must give it try.

Added the challenge to The Food Blog Diary for you. BTW is that fish on top of the frittata, I don’t see it in the recipe. I am rather hoping you say no.

I’m so pleased this challenge is back. My little girl is starting school soon and I know I’m going to need some more slow cooker inspiration so I can spend time with her after school rather than having to start cooking dinner then!

I’m always so impressed with the variety of different recipes you create in the slow cooker! Love frittata!


Yes please! You have combined some of my favourite flavours. This is a must try. Thank you for sharing with #CookBlogShare x

Your frittata looks absolutely delicious! I have to bookmark it for the future so I can try and make it in my slow cooker 🙂 I feel like I’m not using it enough!

[…] PS. I am sharing this with No Croutons Required and the Slow Cooker Challenge. […]

I would never have thought to make a frittata in a slow cooker and love the addition of goat’s cheese x
