Greek Scrambled Eggs

Happy World Egg Day! Fun fact: October 12 is a global celebration of the health benefits of eggs as well as the hard work and dedication of the people who make it possible for us to enjoy them.

To celebrate this delicious occasion, I’m sharing one of our favourite egg recipes, which, incidentally, we discovered when we were vacationing in Greece last year almost to the day today. Talk about serendipity!

Greek scrambled eggs (also called strapatsada) is a delicious dish made of eggs, tomatoes, onions and feta cheese. It’s a great meal to share with family and friends.

How to make Greek scrambled eggs

Greek Scrambled Eggs

We ate strapatsada almost everyday when we were in Greece. It’s so simple but so delicious.

First you caramelize the tomatoes and the onions, then you add the eggs and stir. You finish with feta cheese and you’re done!

This recipe is good for 4-6 people so it’s a great dish to make on a Saturday morning to enjoy with your loved ones. It’s protein-packed and filled with key nutrients too so its a great way to start the day everyday.

How to know if eggs are fresh

Greek Scrambled Eggs

One thing you need to do is ensure your ingredients are fresh to really make this dish shine.

A simple way to check if your eggs are fresh is to fill a cup with cold water then gently drop the egg in.

If it sinks to the bottom of the cup, it’s fresh. If the egg sinks to the bottom but stands upright, it’s still good but you need to use it soon. If the egg floats to the top, it’s no longer fresh and you need to throw it away.

Here in Canada, eggs get from farm to stores in less than a week so we’re always sure that they’re fresh when we buy them.

Proud to be Canadian

Greek Scrambled Eggs

We’re so lucky that our Canadian egg farmers take great pride in providing us with the highest quality eggs. They adhere to National Animal Care and food-safety programs and make sure the hens are cared for too.

And no matter where we are in Canada, whether here in Ontario where I am or in the Northwest Territories, we can be sure that our eggs come from our local farmer because Canadian eggs are produced in every province. Buying local is really important to us so this makes us happy!

Ingredients
 
 

  • drizzle olive oil
  • 1 pc large sweet onion finely chopped (see note 1)
  • 6 pcs medium tomatoes diced (see note 2)
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 6 pcs large eggs beaten well
  • 3 oz crumbled feta cheese
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Drizzle some olive oil on a skillet. Add chopped onions and cook on medium-high heat until soft and translucent.
  • Add diced tomatoes (including all the juice) and 1 tsp sugar. Allow to boil for 15-20 minutes or until all the liquid is gone and the mixture is well caramelized (see note 3).
  • Meanwhile, season eggs with salt and pepper. Switch to low heat and pour the eggs into the caramelized onions and tomatoes. Stir continuously so that the eggs incorporate into the onions and tomatoes well (we don't want them cooking separately).
  • Once cooked (still juicy and not dry), take off the heat and add feta cheese. Stir until combined. 

Notes

  1. Chopped, you should have a heaping 1 1/2 cups - 2 cups of onions.
  2. You can also use canned, diced tomatoes. Make sure to include the juice.
  3. Add 1/4 cup water if your tomatoes are not very juicy.

I love eggs - they really are the perfect food - so adaptable and they go from simple to fancy.

I love these Greek scrambled eggs - perfect for brunch - if you start with good ingredients and these quality eggs the final result will be scrummy!

What a great way to start the day. We try to alternate our breakfasts and my favorite day is Sunday. Sunday we make something special with eggs. So this Sunday I will be making this recipe. You can't go wrong with eggs and those delicious ingredients.

I love eggs! I didn't even know there was a world egg day. This looks delicious and will have to try it because I eat eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner some times. You can never run out of ways to eat eggs. Looks yummy!

I love eggs and can have them every day - no complaints. I'm an omelet kind of person but this scrambled with feta and Greek style has me going. I can't wait to make this - maybe this weekend.

I had no idea there was a day to celebrate eggs! Lol :) My kids love eggs and I do a breakfast for dinner night for them once a week and stick to egg dishes.
