Feta and Herb Scramble and a Breakfast Blog Hop

I 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.

Feta and Herb Scramble

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 Herb Scramble
Prep Time
Cook Time
Total Time
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
  • 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
  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).

  1. 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.

  2. I love your linkups and seeing what everyone makes….I could add a zillion but I’ll stop now 🙂

  3. Who wouldn’t want this for breakfast? The eggs look so good.

  4. Yum! That feta and herb scramble looks delightful! Just linked up, but had such a hard time choosing. Can we link two? LOL

    • Thanks Lisa!! So glad you linked up 🙂 And I know I’m a few days late in my reply but you can totally link up more than one! I’d love to see what else you have.

  5. 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!

    • Thanks Manu!! I always love breakfast in Italy – standing up at a counter with an espresso and pastry. My kind of breakfast!

  6. Feta is the perfect cheese for scrambled eggs!

  7. Mmmm, looks delicious! 🙂 I love feta cheese, and it should be perfect for a flavorful scramble!

  8. Mmm – I don’t do enough breakfasts! Those scrambled eggs looks great.
    Thanks for the invite to the blog hop! Love to be a part of it 😀

  9. Absolutely perfect scrambled eggs! Herbs and cheese were just made to go with eggs, weren’t they?

  10. Breakfast is my favorite meal unless you count dessert. Your eggs look fantastic.

  11. 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 hoe you find some good recipes here Mary, there are plenty to choose from! I know I can always use more breakfast inspiration 🙂

  12. The top recipes on my blog by page views are all breakfast recipes!

  13. 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.

  14. I love weekend breakfasts – brunch Katherine, your srambled eggs look great, so I will make them tomorrow.
    Such a great bloghop, pinned!!

  15. Katherine,
    Your breakfast scramble sounds really delicious. I brought simple Cream scones today. Thank you for hosting. Pat

  16. This scramble sounds amazing. We LOVE breakfast food! Thanks for hosting these Friday link parties!

  17. Your feta and herb scramble looks DELISH!!! Always fun to join in on your linky parties, Katherine!

  18. Great recipe! Love scrambles and I could eat it for lunch and dinners too. Throw in as a snack, I don’t mind 😀

  19. 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 🙂

  20. I like scrambled eggs and mixed with feta is just brilliant.

  21. 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!

  22. 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 🙂

  23. I like eggs for breakfast!! I love poached eggs with runny yolks, but I like any form of eggs really. Love the links! I’m drooling at all the recipes people have put up!

  24. I love this scramble!! Scrambles are some of my all time favorite breakfast dishes!! Love all the links! I linked up my whole wheat pancakes! 🙂

  25. Great scramble . . . and great link up.

  26. I am obsessed with brunch – it is without a doubt my most favourite meal of the day! Do you mind if I link up more than one?

  27. 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.

  28. Eggs with cheese are one of my fave weekend breakfasts. In scrambles or omelet form or even baked in ramekins, they can’t be beat.

  29. I love feta in my eggs – always a winner 🙂

  30. 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!
