Huevos Griegos a la Mexicana

Greek Omelette Mexican Style

Berlin, 21.01.2016

So there were we, a Mexican family on holidays in the island of Crete in Greece. On that week, we would be waking up quite early because we would be visiting different parts of the island thus, before coming to the apartment we´ve stopped to buy some food for breakfast in a supermarket and some beer for the night.

When I woke up next morning, my sister had already made coffee. She told me to prepare the table because we were having „Greek eggs“ for breakfast. I was wondering if “Greek eggs” actually exists. In Mexico, we do have „Huevos a la Mexicana“ (Eggs Mexican style) which is essentially scrambled eggs with chile serrano (green serrano peppers), white onion and tomato, these are the colours of the Mexican flag so no wonder why we call it Mexican eggs. This recipe is an easy but tasty breakfast-invention which was born in Sweden while she was an exchange student in the city of Malmö. She named it Greek Omelette just because of the feta cheese, which at that times were not so known in Mexico.



Omelette Griego a la Mexicana
  • 50 g    feta cheese
  • 2 Stück    eggs
  •    oregano
  • 1 EL    butter



Omelette Griego a la Mexicana
  1. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl
  2. Add the Feta Cheese and the Oregano and use a fork to beat them together.
  3. Heat up a Pan and add the butter until it melts
  4. Pour in the egg´s mixture and spread evenly
  5. When the omelette begins to cook you can give it a turn or just fold it over in half.
  6. When it starts turning gold brown remove it from heat and slide the omelette in a plate.
This recipe can easily be tuned with some chopped pasilla chilli and chopped chives. Eat the omelette with some bread, I've had some Bergkäse Bread (mountain cheese) or make some tacos with corn or flour tortillas. Finally, you can also enjoy this breakfast with Salsa Pico de Gallo.
