Greek Style Scrambled Eggs

When Kevin and I were on our honeymoon in Greece a few years ago, we made the most fantastic discovery. At the hotels we stayed at, whenever we ordered eggs, they asked if we wanted them “Greek style”. Having no idea what that was, we experimented on day one…one order of plain, and one order of Greek…just to be safe. Turns out (no surprise) Greek style eggs are scrambled eggs with typical Greek accoutrements added…wonderfully ripe tomatoes, salty feta cheese, and fresh oregano. It was so delicious and different than any way I’d had scrambled eggs before. After the first try, we were hooked. By the end of the trip, we felt like pros, asking for “Greek style” before even prompted. I’m sure they could barely tell we were American (chuckle, chuckle…).

Greek-Style Scrambled Eggs

 

You’ll need:

 

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons peeled, seeded, and diced tomatoes*
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled feta
  • 1 teaspoon minced oregano
  • olive oil, for drizzling
  • salt & pepper

 

To prepare:

 

  1. Start by heating a medium size frying pan over medium heat. While the pan is heating, whip together the eggs and milk.
  2. When the pan is hot, add the butter, swirling so that it melts and covers the entire bottom of the pan. Add the egg mixture.
  3. Use a rubber spatula to move the eggs around as they slowly cook. Do not let the eggs brown.
  4. When the eggs start to solidify, but are still mushy, season with salt & pepper, then add the tomatoes and 2 tablespoons of the feta. Mix together, and continue mixing as it cooks.
  5. The eggs are done when they are no longer runny, but are still soft.  At this stage, remove from the heat, and mix in the oregano.
  6. Serve immediately, garnishing with a very light drizzle of olive oil and the remaining feta.

 

*To peel the tomato, first cut a very small x into the bottom of the tomato. Dip the tomato into boiling water for 30 seconds, and then into an ice bath. The skin will peel right off. Remove the seeds before dicing.
