If you’ve been reading the blog for awhile, you probably know I have a thing for eggs. And when I say “thing for” I mean “hate them.” Well, “hate” is taking it a tad far–I don’t hate all eggs, just most eggs, and it doesn’t take much for me to hate them, especially if I have to cook them myself. I want to like them so badly because I actually do think they taste good, but they just make my throat want to close up.

We-ell, this past April, Sara and I came up with the idea of making breakfast taquitos. I left Sara to the taquito recipe experimentation because, all together now, “Kate hates eggs!” So imagine my surprise when I loved. Loved. LOVED the eggs in her taquitos, especially when there was a buffer of other ingredients and the crispy tortilla.

As we’ve read through the comments about how people like to use feta, we’ve seen a number of people say they love it on eggs. So I sucked it up and whipped out my frying pan. Since 9 times out of 10, my omelets flop (nearly literally), I usually end up making some kind of egg scramble and then wrapping it up in a tortilla or a crepe (how I can make crepes and not omelets is beyond me). I knew I wanted to use something similar to Sara’s egg filling for the taquitos, but I wanted it to be a little more Mediterranean, so I swapped out a few ingredients. Guess what? I totally loved it. And really, the key players are eggs, salt, pepper, and feta cheese–you can add as little or as much other stuff as you like. But this is what I did:

Like I said, though, you can add anything you want in there. The feta adds a light, salty tanginess that I think offsets the less desirable flavors eggs can sometimes produce (kind of like citrus juice and fish)–way better than that heavy, overwhelming flavor that you sometimes get from adding cheddar to scrambled eggs (I’ll give you 1 guess on how much I love cheddar on eggs. Yes, I was the weird kid growing up.)

    I love to sprinkle feta on my salad of Spring Mix, Chow Mein noodles and a light Balsamic Vinaigrette and Grilled Chicken. The feta adds richness to my salad so I don't feel like I'm a rabbit when I eat my lunch everyday.

    I love feta in a craisain, spinach, pine nut salad with a raspberry vinaigrette. However, my husband hates the stuff and so I have not had the privilege of eating it in over a year because of that and it is soooooo good.

    I add Athenos FETA cheese to a cous cous side dish that I prepare with grilled peppers and onions. I also add diced cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle in some red wine vinegar, olive oil, chopped garlic and black pepper. Great served warm or cold. Athenos FETA cheese really makes this dish special. LOVE your site…pictures are awesome!! Great recipes and ideas!!

    I’m so sad that I don’t have tortillas or sour cream because I would make this right now for breakfast! Yes, I could make tortillas (which I have done many times in the past because they’re great) but my stomach’s growling already :D Will definitely have to try this very soon!

    Can’t wait to try it! I think I’ll use out as breakfast for dinner entrees. I wonder how our would be in a pita, sticking with the theme. Oh, and I used to think I had to stay away from soft cheeses when I was pregnant, but then I read that’s only if they are not pasteurized. Most grocery store commercial prepared feta is pasteurized, so expectant moms, eat up!

    I know I just commented. Like yesterday or something. BUT I thought you, Kate, might find this amusing. I write out a dinner list for every two weeks (to coincide with my Bountiful Baskets) on a 3×5 note card and if I’m smart, I magnetize it to the fridge as soon as it’s done. I didn’t do it this time, and it is currently MIA. But I remembered a few things on it, like this dish. I couldn’t remember the exact name, but I thought for sure it was on your blog. So I came here and skimmed the alphabetical list since searching “eggs” brought up anything with an egg in the ingredient list. Yeah. So anyhow, I’m scrolling down starting to doubt myself: “Was it on OBB or was it on the BudgetBytes blog??” but then, I remembered “No, it HAS to be OBB because when I was reading the post and the subsequent recipe I distinctly remember reading ‘I. Hate. Eggs.’ and THAT is what Kate would say, so it’s GOTTA be here” and obviously I found it again. I hope this gave you a good chuckle! Happy Wednesday!
