Instant Pot Frittata – Reuben Style!

Frittata on a wood cutting board with toast

The Instant Pot Frittata gets a little Reuben flare!



For the Russian Dressing (double if you like a lot of sauce)


  1. Lightly grease a 7 inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine sauerkraut, diced potatoes, green onions, ¾ cup swiss cheese, and pastrami; toss.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, relish, mustard, cumin, salt, and pepper.
  4. Pour egg mixture over meat mixture and stir.
  5. Pour into the prepared pan.
  6. Add 1 cup of water to the pressure cooker pot and place a trivet inside.  Carefully set the springform pan on the trivet.
  7. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 25 minutes.
  8. While the frittata cooks, combine Russian Dressing ingredients and place in the fridge.  This can be made a day or two in advance.
  9. When pressure cooking is complete, use a natural release for 5 minutes and then release any remaining pressure.  
  10. Remove pan from the pressure cooker.  Top with ¼ cup Swiss cheese. Place under the oven broiler to brown the cheese.
  11. Run a knife around the edge of the pan, remove the outer ring.
  12. Garnish with fresh chives.
  13. Serve wedges of the frittata with a large dollop of Russian Dressing and toast.
