What is Greek Omelette?
Our preferred breakfast for busy days is a delicious Omelette or Frittata which is loaded with veggies, so that it is wholesome, healthy, and keeps you filled for longer. And this Greek Omelette is one such dish. Quick, nutritious, and filling, this will surely be your new favorite egg recipe.
I absolutely relish this Omelette as it is loaded with my favorites, spinach, tomato, mint leaves, olives, and onions. To make it more authentic, I have used Kalamata Olives. If you cannot find the Kalamata ones, you can go for the regular ones.
The best part it is so quick and easy to make, that it makes for a perfect weekday breakfast. Sometimes, I even make it for my brunch, as I love the flavors of this omelet.
Now, I do know that you might feel weird adding mint to your omelet but for this one garnish it with fresh mint leaves and you will see the difference!
Also, do use freshly cracked black pepper when you are making Greek Omelette. Trust me, it shall pep up its flavors all the more.
This Greek style Omelette is,
- Easy + Quick
- Perfect for weekday breakfast
Eggs – The star ingredient of the recipe, which is high in protein, thus great for your breakfast recipes.
Veggies – Here, I have used spinach, onions, tomatoes, olives, and mint leaves. But you can add any veggies of your choice.
Feta Cheese – Adds a delicious creamy texture on the top of the omelette. Though kefalotiri cheese is used for making the traditional Greek Omelet in Southern Greece, I found that even crumbled feta cheese works just fine.
Salt and Pepper – Always add that extra perk of heat in the recipes and I love it a little extra in my omelettes.
How to make Greek Omelette?
Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
Heat olive oil in an 8 inch non-stick pan.
Add spinach, olives, tomato and onion and fry for 2-3 minutes on medium heat.
Pour the egg mixture in the pan and allow uncooked eggs to flow over the spinach mixture.
Sprinkle fresh mint and feta on top of the omelette.
Gently fold the omelette in half. Remove the pan from heat and let the omelette rest for 5 minutes. Serve hot.
