These crispy feta fried eggs are the ultimate breakfast delight! A delicious golden feta cheesy crust with a perfectly cooked egg served in a tortilla.


  • 1/3 cup greek feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 large egg
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes or dried oregano
  • 1 small tortilla
  • 1/4 avocado, mashed
  • Small handful arugula (rocket leaves)
  • Squeeze of lemon juice


  1. Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble in the feta and immediately crack an egg into the centre.
  2. Cook the egg to your liking (medium or with a tiny yolk) and cheese is crispy and golden on the bottom.
  3. Char the tortilla in a dry pan on the stove or over a gas flame then add the mashed avocado and rocket leaves on top. 
  4. Slide the fried feta egg on top of the tortilla and enjoy.


  • Best enjoyed immediately*
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Enjoy cold or reheat in a pan or the microwave for a few minutes. The texture however won’t be the same and the egg can overcook.
