I shake my head sometimes when I look at my earliest posts, and apparently when I named this recipe back in 2005 I thought it was clever to call it Un-Scrambled Eggs. Now I’m calling this tasty breakfast Low-Carb Mini Frittata for two with Bacon, Green Onions, and Feta. This one has three of my all-time favorite ingredients, (bacon, Feta, and green onions!) and it’s just the the kind of breakfast I love to make on the weekend.
I know some of my readers are only moderate consumers of bacon, and for this recipe I use two slices of pre-cooked bacon. Use more or less bacon as desired. And you could definitely make this with turkey bacon or Canadian bacon if you prefer. Either way I hope you’ll be as happy as I was with this simple, quick breakfast idea that’s loaded with flavor.
Start by beating the eggs with the milk, half and half, or cream, and a small amount of Spike seasoning if desired. Add olive oil or butter to 9 inch omelet pan, and saute green onions for a couple of minutes. Add the crumbled bacon (which you have cooked in the microwave and blotted with paper towels to remove as much fat as possible.) Cook a minute more. Pour in beaten eggs, then crumble the feta over the top, turn heat to very low, cover the pan and cook about 10 minutes. The eggs will puff up slightly when they’re done. Eat!
If you’re only eating one serving, the rest will keep in the fridge just fine and you’ll have a tasty breakfast for the next day!

Low-Carb Mini Frittata for Two with Bacon, Feta, and Green Onions
Low-Carb Mini Frittata for Two with Bacon, Green Onions, and Feta is a delicious and quick breakfast!
- 3 eggs
- 1 T milk, half and half, or cream (use lowfat milk for South Beach Diet)
- Spike seasoning to taste
- fresh ground pepper to taste
- 2 slices bacon (I use pre-cooked bacon from Costco, the type that’s sold in the refrigerated case)
- 2 T sliced green onion
- 1 tsp. butter or olive oil (use olive oil for South Beach Diet)
- 2 T crumbled Feta (I use my favorite Feta Cheese)
- For best results with this recipe, use a 9″ non-stick omelet pan.
- In a small mixing bowl, beat eggs, milk, and Spike together. (Don’t be tempted to add salt, the bacon and Feta will make it salty enough!)
- Put bacon on a plate with a paper towel above and below the bacon and cook in microwave until very crisp, about 3 minutes.
- As bacon cooks, add olive oil to omelet pan, then add green onions, turn heat to low, and cook 2-3 minutes or until onions are just starting to soften, but not browned.
- Blot bacon with paper towels to remove as much fat as possible, then crumble bacon , add to pan and cook 1 minute more.
- Pour beaten eggs over the onion-bacon mixture, then crumble Feta over eggs.
- Keep heat on low, cover pan, and cook about 10 minutes. It’s done when eggs look set but still slightly moist, Feta looks melted, and the eggs have puffed up slightly.
- Turn off heat and let eggs sit one minute. Grind some fresh ground pepper over, and enjoy.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
This Mini Frittata for Two with Bacon, Green Onions, and Feta is suitable for most low-carb and low-glycemic eating plans. As I’ve already mentioned, the South Beach Diet discourages eating bacon because of the saturated fat, so if you make this with bacon it’s an occasional treat for South Beach Dieters, especially because the Feta cheese also has saturated fat.
