A classic Greek breakfast loaded with spinach and feta cheese, Greek Omelette suits perfectly for fancy breakfast! Also, make it for quick brunch on a lazy weekend and enjoy the variety of its exotic flavours. Here is how to make Greek style Omelette Recipe with Feta Cheese.
Eggs are most preferred when it comes to breakfast.
You can make so many different recipes from this single ingredient, be it a simple boiled egg, scrambled eggs, bhurji, omelette, frittata or even a curry.
The options are many!
But I prefer Omelettes and Frittata the most for my breakfast because in this way I can even add veggies in my family’s everyday diet.
So mostly I load up my omelette with vegetables and serve it with a crisp toast.
While Indian Style Masala Omelette is made very often at home, I sometimes like to fancy up my recipes with a different style of omelettes that are popular in different cuisines.
One of them is this Greek Omelette.
Pairing herbs and veggies with egg mixture, topped with creamy feta cheese, this omelette tastes like heaven.
And if you are up for it then get ready to gently fold this fluffy Greek style Omelette for healthy brekkie every day, you guys!
By reading the name of the recipe, you might feel that this snack would need fancy preparations.
But, not at all!
In fact, it gets done by taking some olive oil, sauteeing in veggies and pouring in the whisked eggs. That’s it!
The egg mixture does not need stirring frequently yet this omelette turns out fluffy and perked up.
About the recipe
A simple Omelette recipe where the eggs are loaded with spinach, tomato, mint leaves, olives and onions.
To make it more authentic, I have used kalamata olives.
You may use the regular ones in case they ain’t available.
Also, Feta Cheese makes it even more delicious as it adds that creamy texture on the top.
Now, I do know that you might feel weird adding mint to your omelette 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 flavours all the more.
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.
Finally, serve it as it is or with a bowl of fresh salad or Pita bread and give your appetite some healthy one up!
You can even serve it along with a crisp Toast.
How to make it as a Casserole
If you are serving this omelette to a crowd, making it as a casserole is a more practical way without compromising on taste.
You will be able to make a big batch with minimal effort and the taste profile will be exactly same as the individual portions.
To make Greek Omelette casserole, mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
Pour the mixture in a greased 8×8 square baking tray and bake in a preheated oven (375 Degrees f) for 30-35 minutes.
Sprinkle feta cheese on top, cut into slices and serve hot.
8×8 inch tray will need a minimum of 8 eggs to bake into a nice square.
So please keep that in mind.
Make it with Potatoes
To make it with Potatoes, peel and cut the potatoes in small cubes.
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a pan.
Add the potato cubes and fry until browned from all the sides.
Whisk eggs, salt, pepper and feta cheese in a bowl.
Add fried potatoes.
Pour the mixture in an oiled pan and cook until egg is set and browned from both the sides.
