This classic Greek favorite adds a little zest to the standard breakfast. Not much salt is needed; feta is very salty.

Instead of butter heat some olive oil, add 1 chopped tomato cooking until soft. In a bowl combine the eggs, feta and a pinch of oregano and pour into the pan with the tomato mixture. Recommended that you don't add any salt. It's a favourite in our house and very tasty! Read More

Good way to use up some feta. I also added spinach & black olives. The olives were a bad choice. Read More

I love feta cheese, so I had to try this. I'm so glad I did because it was delicious! Like others, I added some onion and tomato plus a dash of oregano. My husband is a traditional scrambled egg kinda guy so I had this all to myself. It was great with multi-grain toast! Read More

I made several egg recipes this morning. This was good but I really liked "Feta Eggs" better because of the addition of chopped tomato and onion. Read More

My son loves greek-style eggs, but we always sweat a little diced onion in the pan first and add in a bit of baby spinach just before serving. I'll sometimes add a few chopped black olives as well Read More

This was excellent! Simple quick and healthy. I used margarine though and I pan-grilled half red onion and a small clove of minced garlic.. before adding the eggs. So yummy! Thank you for the idea! Read More

These were good but I thought that the feta overpowered the eggs a bit. Next time I will reduce to 1/4 of a cup and perhaps add some diced tomatoes. I substutued milk for the water and didnt add salt because as the recipe states the feta is salty on its' own. Read More

Great recipe to use and tailor to what you like. I started with some chopped fresh tomatoes, 1 chopped green onion, chopped red pepper and I stirfied it in the pan. I used the three eggs with the required water and about 1/4 cup of the feta cheese. I also added oregano. Lots of this these ideas are from suggestions from other cooks but my comment is to add that this is a great starter recipe - dream it and create whatever taste you like. Kudos. Great basic recipe.
