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!

  • 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. 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.

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.

  4. Hello Kalyn,

    I often top my eggs with avocados, but never thought about incorporating them into the batter. I'll be trying this for breakfast this morning!

    Laura

  5. A woman has to eat! Yes. And that mini-frittata plate is beautiful. Huge congrats on the big R. A whole new phase begins. How exciting!

  6. I love anything avocado and paired with feta-mmmmm mmm mmm! I am literally drooling on my desk! Thanks for the recipe.

  7. I've combined feta and avocado in a green salad, often with some nectarine to balance the flavors, but I've never thought of doing it with eggs. Inspired! I'm going to try it this weekend.

  8. mmmm great brunch dish for the weekend. I just bookmarked your recipe.

  9. I'm glad people like the idea of feta and avocado with eggs. Egg whites would be fine for this I'm sure.

    Also thanks for all the retirement good wishes. I am slowly realizing it is a little bittersweet, but more sweet than bitter in the long run I'm sure. And yes, I'm looking forward to more time in the kitchen!

  10. Love your site and all the recipes! Congrats on your retirement-I still have a few school years to go…

  11. The perfect size for us…but I bet Josh could eat it all by himself:) Congrats on your teaching accomplishments! Enjoy the last of it and then it's time for some serious R and R! You deserve it!

  12. A wonderful and somewhat bittersweet occasion.I am sure you will be still very busy, and I look forward to reading a lot more after you get settled. As for the recipe…anything with feta and avocado is a hit with me!

  13. What a unique frittata! I always do enjoy your egg creations.

    Happy retirement! Your readers are happy you will have more time in the kitchen.

  14. Now that's a perfect breakfast!

    Wow, you have a lot going on. Won't it be strange to not go back to the classroom in the fall after so many years of teaching? I'm excited for you and hope you enjoy blogging full time. Should be so fun!

  15. Looks lovely. I agree with Joanne. Feta + avocado = how can it go wrong? 🙂

  16. I tend to make a lot of frittatas (frittate?) during the summer months. Yours is a perfect example of light, tasty and nutritious meal! I'll have to try the avocado next time.

  17. Congratulations on your retirement, I always enjoy your posts, though rarely leave a comment.

  18. Oh this looks so good! I am assuming it would work just as well with egg whites? I'm not a big egg person, but this looks like something I must try!

  19. This sounds incredibly good. The salty feta with the creamy avocado – a match made in heaven.

  20. Absolutely delicious! I love the saltiness of feta in eggs.
