If you love easy frittata recipes, you have to check out this recipe for Avocado and Feta Frittata.
You can think of a frittata as the Italian version of the omelette. It’s open-faced and not folded over, like a conventional omelette is.
Unlike an omelette, the egg mixture is cooked over a very low heat until the underside is set but the top is still runny.
Then the egg mixture is flipped over or set under a broiler to cook the top layer. It’s a bit tricky, but learning to make an avocado frittata is worth it!
Try it out for Mother's Day or another brunch time get together.
Healthing up this avocado frittata
You can make this avocado frittata recipe even healthier by substituting liquid egg whites for some of the eggs. Just use 3 tablespoons of egg whites for one regular egg.
Another way to health up this avocado feta frittata dish is to use sundried tomatoes that aren’t packed in oil.
You’ll need to soften them up by soaking in hot water for 15 to 20 minutes or so before chopping them up for the recipe.
Also, a frittata pan makes a terrific Mother’s Day gift!
- 6 large eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and cubed
- 1/2 cup feta cheese, divided
- 1/3 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cups baby arugula, divided
- Preheat broiler.
- In a medium bowl, beat eggs with salt and pepper.
- Stir in half of the avocado, half of the feta, and half of the tomatoes, and set aside.
- Heat oil (can be from the tomatoes) in a 9-inch oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Stir in 1-1/2 cups of the arugula until wilted, about 30 seconds.
- Add the beaten egg mixture. Cook until eggs start to set, lifting sides a bit to let uncooked egg run underneath, about 5 minutes.
- Sprinkle with remaining cheese and tomatoes.
- Transfer skillet to the broiler. Cook until eggs are set, 1 to 2 minutes; remove from broiler.
- Sprinkle with remaining avocado and arugula. Serve hot.
