If you’re a long-time reader of my blog you may have noticed how much I love the creamy tangy flavor of Feta Cheese! This is a product I’ve loved so long that I first made it one of my Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks back in 2007! And of course I’ve been using it in new recipes ever since that time, so I’m updating that old post with this collection of Low-Carb and Keto Recipes with Feta Cheese.

My blog has a lot of salads with Feta Cheese, but today I’m focusing on main dishes with Feta, side dishes with Feta, and of course breakfast recipes with Feta. There are 15 recipes featured with photos, and then more Feta cheese recipes linked after the pictures, and every recipe here is one I’ve loved and made many times. If you’re a fellow Feta Cheese lover this should be enough recipes to have you getting your Feta Cheese fix on a regular basis, and I hope you enjoy trying some you might have missed!

What is Feta Cheese?

If you’re not familiar with Feta, Wikipedia has a good description of this type of Greek cheese. It’s an essential ingredient in Greek Salad, one of my all-time favorite dishes.

Will Feta Cheese Keep in the Fridge?

I don’t buy the pre-crumbled Feta, because that type doesn’t keep well. I buy blocks of Feta at Costco, where this new Kirkland Organic Feta is my new favorite brand. But every type of block Feta Cheese I’ve had from Costco has been good, although I have a definite preference for sheep’s milk Feta. Admittedly, I might not be able to store such a huge amount of Feta if I didn’t have the FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer (affiliate link), which vacuum packs the cheese so it  stays good in the fridge for months and months. Of course, at my house it will never last that long.

Is Feta Cheese Low in Carbs?

Most Feta Cheese has ZERO CARBS or less than one carb per serving, which certainly makes me love it even more! Check your package, some brands may differ, but I’m sure every brand of Feta is going to be very low in carbs.

  1. I believe I am already subscribed to your page.

    Well, what fun for me to read your Geek feta recipes, because I grew up in a Greek home. I read your info I just have never commented.

    Here’s a little trivia: As far as I knew, no one in USA or at least in my state of Maine ate Feta except probably the Greeks. In the 40’s and 50’s there was of course no Feta in any store, we ordered our Feta from Greece. It was delivered to us once a month in a wonderful, sealed, wooden bucket, the cheese always surrounded by the brine; it kept for a long time.

    The older women in the community all have their own ways of preserving the smaller amount of cheese that they buy in the store. One idea is to put the cheese in a nice container-with a good lid–and cover it with milk., works well.

    I never buy the pre-crumbled cheese, little small squares of of Feta looks so much better in salads. the pre-crumbled cheese, including parmesan often has an additive to keep it from sticking together–cellulose I think. I am looking forward to trying these recipes. Penelope

    • Hi Penelope,
      How fun hearing from your and learning all that trivia about Feta. I don’t think I ever tried it myself until I was in college, and in those days I don’t think you could buy it in the store here either, except maybe in a specialty cheese market.

      I am NOT a fan of the crumbled Feta cheese at all, so I was so happy when Costco started carrying the blocks. I have to go to the bigger Costco in Salt Lake City to get it, but worth the trip! Hope you enjoy the recipes!

  2. At Publix, they have Vigo feta cheese which is made with sheep's milk. It's the only feta I will buy around here. I really don't care for the cow's milk type or with added ingredients to keep it crumbly. Just another option for those that can't get some of these other brands.

  3. This is my favorite feta too. I also buy at costco but recently was at a "value store" and they had it…the label didn't say "presidente" anywhere like it does at costco, but i took a chance and found it to taste just the same (phew)…so i'm thinking if it says Valbreso it's probably a-ok!!

  4. Melanie, we don't have Trader Joe's in Utah.

    The newer FoodSavers are wonderful for keeping foods like this. You use the setting for "moist" foods (which prevents the machine from sucking in the liquid somehow.) I seal packages of feta all the time with it. I drain off some of the brine, but there is enough left in the package to keep it moist.

  5. I am not sure how widespread Trader Joe's is, but they have the most delicious feta I've ever tasted– it's sheepsmilk, imported from Greece, and is kept in a tub of brine which keeps it wonderfully moist, the problem I have with most other fetas. Does your foodsaver gadget help keep it from drying out?

  6. Angie my Costco has Dodoni Feta too, but I like this one better.

  7. My sister lives in Greece, she sent me this link to your blog, i love Feta, she came to visit me over the holiday's and brought me some olive oil ad DODONI feta! best feta ever, she said it was actually the cheaper brand over in Athens but nothing like anything here, i have never tried sheeps milk feta but i have 4 costco in my area, i will be down at one tomorrow morning to see if I can get it here in Frisco Texas, wish me luck, ill keep you posted, plan on making salad and mushrooms for lunch if i find it yum…xoxox

  8. This is our favorite feta too – domestic can't hold a candle to this one. I am so excited to hear I can buy it at Cosco as I have been paying twice the cost there at a little Middle East grocer not too far from my house.

  9. Thanks for the mention Kalyn. I love Feta too. At this time of the year I’m sprinkling it on brown mushrooms a drizzle of oil and a few herbs and baking for 20 minutes.kxscb

  10. We always have feta ’round the house for my mouse of a wife!

  11. I love feta cheese too, it adds an extra kick to almost any savory dish. I’ve never tried this brand though, I’ll definitely keep an eye out for it!

  12. Oh Paz, that’s just plain sad. Costco is amazing, if you can get past the obvious consumerism culture that it sprang out of. I buy so many food products there. (Ok, I guess that’s something people have already noticed.)

  13. I love feta. There’s no Costco near me, unfortunately. Never been there before. 🙁


  14. Mooncrazy, I think their Feta is fantastic. I used to buy a very expensive brand from an Italian deli, but this is just as good if not better.

    Lydia, it’s great. I’d be curious to know if it’s more expensive there. I think food is pretty cheap in Utah.

    Christine, I always thought goat’s milk Feta was best too, until I tried this one.

    Holler, no Costco in Scotland? I thought they were worldwide, but maybe not. I know some people are turned off by their large sizes of everything, but I love Costco!

  15. I love Feta! That’s a good line up of recipes, I am going to work my way through all the veggie ones! You are lucky having Costco, I don’t think we have anything similar! The only thing I buy in bulk is my parmesan (my fridge is only little).

  16. Wish we had Costco — have I mentioned that before? 🙂 I am usually a goat’s milk feta fan but I will keep an eye out for this one.

  17. Kalyn, I’ll look for this at my Massachusetts Costco tomorrow — what a find!

  18. I’ll need to try this because Presidente makes the most delish butter so I’m sure they’d do a great job with cheese.
