Greek Eggs

I love Greek food. My sister-in-law is Greek, and I fell in love with their cuisine when I attended her brother's engagement party. Everything was delicious. The best part of the meal was the salad. At the bottom of the salad was a wonderful layer of potato salad. How unexpected, and high in carbs. This egg dish is not high in carbs, but still delicious. It's pretty simple, but tastes very elegant. You will need the following ingredients:

1 tablespoon of butter
3 eggs
1 teaspoon of water
1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk the eggs and water together, then pour the mixture into the pan. Add the feta cheese and cook, stirring occasionally as you would any scrambled eggs. Season with as much salt and pepper as you like. (Remember that feta cheese has a very salty taste to it, so taste before you add too much salt.)

Thanks for this recipe. I have some feta that needs to be used but not enough for a family meal. Kudos to you.

I hope you enjoy these eggs. I thought they were great, but then, I'm a sucker for feta!
