The Traeger is a little underutilized when it comes to breakfast foods. I think some of that has to do with people not having the time or the patience for big breakfasts with multiple things cooking at once to pull it off on a grill. I get it.

Sometimes, I want a big hearty breakfast but the execution takes too much time, and I just end up skipping breakfast entirely.

Not great!

This recipe is high protein, low carb, and 100% delicious. It is also great for meal prep, so you can whip up a pan or two of this on the weekends and enjoy it all week long.

What is a frittata, anyway?

According to, a Frittata is “an omelet resembling a large pancake and containing vegetables, seasonings, and often ricotta, Parmesan, or other cheese.”

Yeah, I had to look it up. I mean, between all of the different egg dishes it is easy to get mixed up. You have Frittatas, Omelets, Egg Bakes, Quiche, Strata. AGGGGHHHHH. There are so many different ways to do eggs. We aren’t even dipping our toes into things with eggs that are unwhipped, either.

Basically,  a frittata is like a lot of those other options, but it is crustless and doesn’t really include milk or cream. They are also traditionally prepared on the stovetop and finished in the oven.

Speaking of the oven, this question comes up quite a bit when you deal with Frittatas.

Can this be cooked in the oven instead of the grill?

Yes! There are benefits to the final results if you start it on the stovetop, but I don’t think they are significant enough to make it 100% necessary.

The same goes for your grills. This is a perfect dish to get creative with cooking methods on.

If your grill is buried in snow or the weather isn’t very conducive to being outside, this recipe can easily be made inside.

Bacon Asparagus Frittata FAQ

Can this dish be made in advance?

Absolutely! That’s one of my favorite things about frittatas. You can make them in advance and they reheat really well. I recommend the oven over the microwave for this for best results.

Is this best served hot or cold?

Either! Personally, I prefer hot – but you can totally make this and serve it cold or room temp if you’d like!

Tips for making the BEST frittata


They matter.

I mean, if you do not have access to farm eggs, I get it. Get your grocery store eggs and you’ll still love this recipe, but if where you live is anywhere like where I live, fresh eggs are literally just down the block. Almost anywhere here.

I realize not everyone lives in the best place on earth like I do, but if you are on the fence about whether farm eggs are ACTUALLY better than factory eggs, GET OFF THE FENCE, THERE IS NO ARGUMENT.

Farm eggs from hens that are allowed to hunt, peck, and spend their days in the grass and the sunshine are not even in the same galaxy as factory eggs.
