Christmas morning is always a blur at our house, and adding a holiday-worthy breakfast into the mix is a bit much. To keep it simple, every year I prep a frittata on the 23rd then just add eggs and bake Christmas morning.

Frittata options are endless, and it’s an immensely versatile dish for both the gluten-free and gluten-full crowds alike. This version I’m going for this year is a little different, with the optional addition of smoked salmon if you’re into that sort of thing (which I totally am).
Prep takes about 30 minutes, morning prep is about 5 minutes, bakes for 45-60 minutes – whether it’s Christmas morning, Sunday morning, or a slow day off, this is a great way to get going and make the best of whatever special events are planned.
Thanks for this recipe! I made this for Christmas morning and it was perfect along with our traditional orange rolls. My family ate it for breakfast and lunch. My husband requested it for a lunch potluck that we have tomorrow so I’m doing it again. An added bonus is that it is gluten free which is nice for those that require it (we don’t). I used a 650g bag of frozen “Breakfast Shredded Hashbrowns” I wouldn’t do more than that. You could get away with less.
Wonderful and healthy dish.
Would loved to have a more specific measurement especially with the potatoes. They come in several sizes.
Made this dish for Christmas morning and it was the perfect savory breakfast I was hoping for… love the smoked salmon and the veggies. It was definitely a hit! Thanks!
I made this for Christmas morning brunch and 2 bags of frozen hash browns seemed a little much. Is it supposed to be 2 lbs instead?
This recipe looks great! Would you be able to give the weight on the two bags of hashed browns? Different brands sell with different weights. Thanks so much!
How big are your bags of hashbrowns? Or maybe how big is your casserole dish? One bag of hashbrowns was almost overflowing mine. And it seemed balanced with the amount of veggies. Perhaps I bought a bigger bag? Either way…excited to eat this tomorrow!
Excited to make this for Christmas! Do you know what size bags of hash browns you use?
Hello! Looks delicious! How many servings is this approximately? 6-8?
Gonna try this with a crescent roll crust!
Chris! They only had massive bags of hashbrowns left at our grocery store! Could you please share an approximate amount of hashbrowns to add or size of bags you put in!
Can’t wait to make this for Christmas!!
I cannot wait to make it. I see a cookbook in your future and I see the cookbook on my kitchen table in my future. Thank you
Sorry but I have to give this recipe only two stars. It turns out that the 365 brand hash browns are the only ones that come in 1 lb. bags, most are 20 to 32 oz. per bag. I didn’t realize this and needless to say my frittata came out very “potatoey”. Suggest adding the package weight to your list of ingredients for clarity. thanks
Could you use freshly grated potatoes as well? Where I live we don’t have frozen hash browns… This looks delish and would love to give it a go.
This looks delicious – would like to try and make it! How many ounces is each bag of hash browns?
Sounds delicious! How many will this recipe feed? I’m going to make it for a Christmas brunch this weekend.
Okayyyyyy Chris bringing in the Christmas SMOKED SALMON. Here for it. Here for it all. Making this on Christmas Eve, thanks Chris and Julia!!!
This is a wonderful Recipe! We just made it. We smoke and can our own salmon, so when I saw the option to add it I was so excited! Thank you for making our morning and Christmas morning even better!
Sounds delicious! May have to try this one
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
