Feta Cheese and Avocado Frittata
Feta Cheese and Avocado Frittata is delicious for a quick low-carb or Keto breakfast, and this is a flavor combination I’d never get tired of.
How’s everyone doing out there with the self-isolation most of us are voluntarily doing to stay safe? I appreciate the nice feedback I’ve gotten on my post with Low-Carb and Keto Recipes with Ingredients You May Have on Hand, and I’m so happy to hear that people are finding it useful. But I’m not going to lie, I’m struggling a bit with how to proceed with day-to-day sharing of recipes on the blog. I normally have several recipe in draft that I’m working on to share soon. But when I looked on Sunday to see what to use this week, I realized that every new or updated recipe I’d worked on had ingredients you probably don’t always have on hand!
So by the process of elimination I settled on this updated recipe for Feta Cheese and Avocado Frittata as the best option for a new recipe post this week! I would be so happy if some of you do have Feta Cheese and Avocado on hand and can try this right away. (Anybody?) But if not, improvise the recipe with a different kind of cheese, and even a different veggies and see what you come up with. Or PIN for later when you do have these ingredients on hand.
And this recipe has some historical significance for me because I first posted it in 2009, just a few days before I retired from teaching elementary school and became a full time blogger! That version was a Feta Cheese and Avocado Mini-Frittata for Two, and if that appeals to you, follow that link to see the original recipe. As you might imagine, my photos from back then were pretty sad, so 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!
How to Make Feta Cheese and Avocado Frittata:
(Scroll down for complete recipe including nutritional information.)
- Slice 6 green onions, keeping the dark and lighter parts separate.
- Crumble Feta and dice up avocado.
- Beat eggs with half and half and Spike Seasoning (affiliate link).
- Saute green onions in olive oil over medium heat, using a 10 or 12 inch frying pan with a lid. (Forgot to take a photo of that!)
- Pour eggs over the green onion and immediately turn heat to low.
- Start to preheat the broiler.
- When eggs have started to look set around the edges (about 2-3 minutes) spoon avocado pieces over the eggs.
- Cook 1-2 minutes, then crumble the feta over the avocado and cook 2-3 minutes more.
- Cover pan and cook until frittata is starting to brown on the bottom and barely set on top, about 8 minutes covered.
- Put the frittata under the broiler and broil until eggs are completely set and top is starting to brown, probably not more than a couple of minutes. (Keep an eye on it)
- Sprinkle with green parts of the green onion.
- Serve hot and enjoy!

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.

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.
