Today I’m sharing this updated recipe for Feta Cheese and Avocado Frittata, and I would be so happy if some of you have Feta Cheese and Avocado on hand and can try this right away. And if you don’t have exactly the ingredients I used, you can definitely improvise the recipe with a different kind of cheese, or even different veggies and still make a frittata that will be very tasty.

This recipe has some historical significance for me because I first posted it just a few days before I retired from teaching elementary school and became a full time blogger! As you might imagine, my photos from back then were pretty sad, and when I decided to update the photos I made this into a regular frittata that serves six! And we loved it when we tested the new-and-improved recipe; enjoy!

What ingredients do you need?

  • olive oil
  • green onions
  • eggs
  • half and half (optional)
  • Spike Seasoning (affiliate link), or other all purpose seasoning blend
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • avocado
  • Feta cheese

What if you don’t have Feta Cheese?

This recipe would be dreamy with Queso Fresca or Cotija, or one of the other crumbly Mexican cheeses. But if you don’t have any special cheese like that and don’t want Feta, it would be delicious with simple grated Mozzarella or even the Three Cheese Mexican Blend that’s sold everywhere.

What is a Frittata?

A frittata is a type of Italian omelet thatโ€™s not turned or folded but is browned under the broiler to finish the cooking. Itโ€™s the type of dish you can happily enjoy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and the ingredient combinations are endless.

Ingredients

  • 1 T olive oil
  • 6 green onions
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 T half and half (see notes)
  • 1 tsp. Spike Seasoning (optional but recommended)
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 large avocado, diced into pieces about 1/2 inch across

  1. Slice 6 green onions, keeping the dark green part and the lighter and white parts separate.
  2. Crumble desired amount of Feta and dice up one large avocado.
  3. Beat eggs with a little half and half and some Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) or another all-purpose seasoning and pepper.

  5. Pour the beaten eggs over the green onion and immediately turn heat to low.
  6. Start to preheat the broiler at this point.
  7. When the eggs have started to barely look set around the edges (about 2-3 minutes) spoon the avocado pieces over the eggs, making sure they are well distributed in the pan.

  9. Then cover pan and cook until the frittata is starting to brown on the bottom and barely set on top, about 8 minutes covered.

Notes

Use milk, cream, or half and half in the eggs, whichever you prefer. If you don't have Spike Seasoning (affiliate link), use any all-purpose seasoning that's good with eggs. I love Feta Cheese, but use more or less Feta to taste.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
This Feta Cheese and Avocado Mini-Frittata is a great breakfast for low-carb, Keto, and low-glycemic diets. Avocados are considered a “good fat” for the original South Beach Diet, but are limited to 1/3 avocado per day and you’d probably have to use less cheese to make this South Beach Diet approved.
