Do you ever find yourself eating the same thing a،n and a،n because it’s easy? Trust me, I’m right there with you. One weekend I recently decided to skip my usual morning smoothie and experimented with a savory breakfast which resulted in this Greek Egg S،et with Sautéed Veggies and Feta. My goal was simple: come up with a recipe that took the same amount of time as prepping a smoothie, but was savory, high protein and low carb. I’m thrilled to share that mission: accomplished!


Greek Breakfast Egg S،et ingredients
  • Olive oil: Used to sauté the veggies.
  • Onion: A white onion or sweet onion work best in this dish, as they balance out flavor and caramelize quickly and deliciously.
  • Bell pepper: I prefer to use a red as they are sweetest of bell peppers, and for the pop of color, vitamin C, and fiber!
  • Spinach: Baby spinach is a bit milder and less bitter, and it wilts easily for great color and nutrients in this dish, especially iron!
  • Garlic powder: While you could use fresh or jarred garlic is as well, I like the intensified flavor that garlic powder brings.
  • Oregano: Adds pungent, earthy, and somewhat gr،y flavor to the final dish.
  • Eggs: A fantastic source of protein that is affordable and accessible.
  • Feta cheese: Creamy, tangy, and salty, c،bling feta cheese is the perfect topper to this dish.

How to Make a Greek Breakfast Egg S،et with Sautéed Veggies

Sauteing veggies in pan

S، your Greek breakfast egg s،et by drizzling some olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Next add your diced onion and bell pepper and sauté until tender.

Adding spinach to pan

Add the baby spinach, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper. Stir until wilted, only a couple of minutes. Set aside.

Frying eggs

Then cook your eggs to your liking, I did over-easy fried eggs.

Dish your sauteed veggies onto a plate, then top with the eggs. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and top with fresh herbs like parsley or c،es. Then serve and enjoy your Greek Breakfast Egg S،et!

Shake Things Up

  • Switch up the veggies. Adding sundried tomatoes would be a great addition, or top with Kalamata olives or black olives.
  • Change the eggs. Instead of fried eggs, try them scrambled or poached!
