Feta and Herb Scramble and a Breakfast Blog Hop

Feta and Herb ScrambleI don’t post that many breakfast recipes. Many of the ones I have do double duty  as dessert and/or breakfast, like my applesauce cake or banana-walnut bread. Most days, I keep my breakfast simple. A cup of coffee. Oatmeal with brown sugar and dried cherries. Yogurt with date honey and homemade pumpkin granola. I’m not usually hungry right when I wake up, and often don’t eat until it’s nearly lunch time. On weekends there’s nothing like enjoying a luxurious brunch (with eggs Benedict and homemade hollandaise sauce of course), but more often than not something simple and flavorful, like this feta and herb scramble, graces our table. It almost seems silly to post a recipe, but I make it so often – and it’s so delicious – I wanted to share it.

 

And I want to know what you enjoy for breakfast. Which is why this week’s blog hop is all about the most important meal of the day. I want to see your best eggs and pancakes, breakfast breads and granolas. What do you eat to fuel you through the day? I should also mention that I was absolutely blown away by the Valentine’s Day recipes linked up at last week’s blog hop. So much so that I started a whole new Pinterest pin board dedicated to it, something I hope to do again with this week’s breakfast entries. Have a great weekend!

Feta and fresh herbs are scrambled with eggs for a delicious, filling breakfast. Although it's fast enough for a quick weekday breakfast, I find it filling and luxurious enough for weekend brunch.

Recipe Type: Breakfast
Yield: 2 servings
Ingredients
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • ½ tablespoon butter
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh herbs (I like chives and parsley)
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta or Bulgarian cheese
  • Salt and pepper
Directions
  1. Lightly whisk together the eggs and egg whites. Set aside.
  2. Heat the butter in a nonstick skillet. When starting to bubble add the onions. Cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the eggs. Scatter the herbs and feta over and allow the eggs to set slightly.
  4. With a spatula, lightly scramble the eggs in the pan.
  5. When they are just set but still very soft and the cheese is melty, remove from the heat and serve.
  6. Season with freshly ground salt and pepper (go light on the salt as the feta is salty).

    I like to keep my breakfasts fairly simple – unless someone else is doing the cooking, of course! I think I might point the freeloaders (oops, children) to this lovely, simple dish.

    Yum!!! This is a great recipe… simple and packed with flavors… I love feta!

    I am like you… I don’t really “eat” at breakfast. I usually have tea or coffee and that’s it. Bad habit I know, but Italians have a very light breakfast, so I am not used to eating more… sigh!

    I absolutely adore breakfast. I don’t think I could ever find enough breakfast ideas to stop looking for new ones. I’m going to be checking a bunch of these links out this weekend, thanks!

    I am a HUGE fan of scrambled eggs! Well…I sure just say eggs. 🙂 So I love your hop theme this week. The hard part was deciding which breakfast recipe to post. Love your Feta and Herb Scramble! Looks deelicious! Thanks for hosting again and have a marvelous weekend! I’m headed to check out some of the other breakfasts.

    a great combination of flavors is all I need to begin my day right, feta and herbs sounds pretty good and I’m not a breakfast recipe girl I eat oatmeal or cereal but I’ll come up with something 🙂

    Breakfast is always my favorite anytime and I can eat any types of breakfast food any of the day! I never added extra egg whites or feta in scramble. That’s a great idea. Love savory and sweet breakfast. I usually can’t pick which one to eat. I realized I don’t really have breakfast recipes to share on your blog hop. Seeing everyone’s recipes make me hungry!

    Yay! I only posted my first breakfast recipe on Friday so this worked out perfectly. I’m like you. I hardly ever make breakfast anything flash unless its a weekend and I can wait until 11 to make it. I wanna make sure I’ve got a big appetite. Your feta and herb scramble sounds lovely! Great way to start a lazy Sunday 🙂

    This is of course nice for breakfast, but add a salad and it’d be great for dinner (with some white wine, yes?). I love the recipes people make all the time – they’re usually simple, but have good flavor. Like this recipe! Thanks.

    Howdy superb blog! Does running a blog such
    as this require a great deal of work? I have virtually no knowledge of computer programming however I was
    hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, should
    you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off subject nevertheless I just needed to ask.
    Appreciate it!
