Waffles, French Toast, Eggs Benedict… sometimes the typical breakfast/brunch options can get to be a bit mundane.
To shake things up, Terra’s Kitchen is sharing their recipe for Greek Baked Eggs, bound to make your brunch guests dying for more. By elevating the simple, protein packed egg, with the flavor of feta and saltiness from the Kalamata olives, your guests are sure to be begging for the recipe.
Greek Baked Eggs
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon heavy cream
- 5 large eggs
- 5 Kalamata olives, pitted and roughly chopped
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
- ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Toasted bread, for dipping and sopping
- Preheat oven to broil.
- Place the oven rack on the first shelf. Add the butter and cream to the bottom of a shallow baking dish (I like to use a stoneware braising pan). Place under the broiler until the butter and cream mixture is hot and bubbly (about 3 to 4 minutes).
- Break the eggs (keeping the yolks intact) into individual bowls and set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the olives, garlic and chopped herbs. Set aside.
- Once the butter and cream mixture is hot and bubbly, remove from the oven and carefully pour the five eggs into the dish (work quickly). Sprinkle the tops of the eggs with the olive herb mixture and top with the crumbled feta cheese. Liberally sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the pan back under the broiler and cook until the egg whites are nearly cooked through (approximately 4 to 5 minutes). Remove from the oven and allow to set for 1 minute before serving. Serve hot with toast for dipping.

If it wasn’t for the yolks, I would have thought that was a recipe for potatoes and chives.I am not a big fan of olives, but when they are mixed into something like this, they are good.
