How is everyone out there with the self-isolation that most of us volunteer to stay safe? I am happy about the nice feedback with which I received my contribution Low-carb and keto recipes with ingredients that you may have on handand I’m so glad to hear people find it useful. But I’m not going to lie, I’m having a bit of trouble with how to continue sharing recipes on the blog every day. I usually have several recipes in the draft that I’m working on to share soon. But when I looked up what to use this week on Sunday, I found that every new or updated recipe I had worked on contained ingredients you probably don’t always have on hand!

Through the process of elimination, I chose this updated recipe for Feta cheese and avocado frittata as the best option for a new recipe contribution this week! I would be very happy if some of you have feta cheese and avocado on hand and can try this right away. (Someone?) But if not, improvise the recipe with another type of cheese and even another vegetable and see what you can come up with. Or PIN for later if you have these ingredients on hand.

And this recipe has a historical meaning for me since I first published it in 2009, just a few days before I retired from primary school and became a full-time blogger! This version was one Feta cheese and avocado mini frittata for two, and if you like it, follow this link to see the original recipe. As you can imagine, my photos from back then were pretty sad. When I decided to update the photos, I made a regular frittata for six! And we loved it when we tested the new and improved recipe. enjoy!

Low Carb Diet / Low Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
This mini frittata with feta cheese and avocado is a great breakfast for low carb, keto and glycemic diets. Avocados are considered “good fat” for the original South Beach diet, but are limited to 1/3 avocado a day, and you would probably need to use less cheese to be eligible for the South Beach diet.
