As I’ve mentioned before, for Greeks, eggs are more of a night food than a breakfast food. The largest meal of the day is a late lunch so the evening meal needed to be something somewhat light and quick to make and that’s where this tasty dish of scrambled eggs cooked along with tomato and onions, comes in. It takes only a few minutes to prepare, but so delicious.
What I like about this particular version is that there are plenty of tomatoes and they are in the form of cherry tomatoes rather than grated as is in the traditional recipe – I like the chunkiness. You will be getting at least one whole serving of vegetables with every egg used, it is almost more like “tomatoes with eggs” rather than “eggs with tomatoes”. This is served with a sprinkle of crumbled feta and a bit of bread. A perfect meal, plenty of vegetables with a bit of protein.
Greeks may eat eggs for supper, but this is perfect for breakfast and brunch.
