What’s A Greek Omelette?
A Greek Omelette is a classic omelet cooked in olive oil and filled with the most classic Greek ingredients, including feta cheese, tomatoes, basil, olives, and sundried tomatoes.
Greek food and the Mediterranean diet have long been ranked as the healthiest diet you can find, often beating the low-carb keto diet!
How To Make Greek Omelette
It’s very easy to make a Greek omelet using only a few ingredients.
Let me share my way of making an omelette Greek-style
- Eggs – I like to use large, free-range eggs. They have a better flavor and great colors.
- Olive Oil – Use extra-virgin olive oil for Greek omelette, instead of a mix of butter and olive oil. The extra virgin olive oil enhances the Mediterranean flavors of the meal.
- Crumbled Feta Cheese – I have a preference for goat’s milk feta, but it also works perfectly with sheep milk feta.
- Kalamata Olives – Kalamata olives are large and have a pronounced and sweet olive flavor.
- Red Onions – While you can use regular onions, red onions are by far tastier.
- Sundried Tomatoes – Sundried tomatoes bring a delicious taste to this recipe.
- Salt and Black Pepper
First, beat the eggs with salt and pepper in a shallow bowl using a small whisk or fork.
Set it aside in the fridge while preparing the omelette filling
Greek Omelet Filling
Next, warm a non-stick pan with half the amount of olive oil.
Add sliced red onion and cook until fragrant which takes about 1 to 2 minutes.
Then, stir in crushed garlic, olives, and sundried tomatoes and give a stir. Cook the filling for 30 seconds just until warm and fragrant.
Set aside on a plate and cover with foil to keep the filling warm.
Cooking The Omelette
Rub the pan with a piece of absorbent paper to remove pieces of filling.
Pour the remaining olive oil and bring over medium-high heat to warm.
Add the whisked eggs and tilt the pan to spread and cook.
When the omelette starts to dry out, and the sides are crispy and cooked, cover half the side of the omelette with half crumbled feta cheese.
Add the red onion mixture on top, then chopped tomato, basil, and feta cheese left.
Gently fold in half and keep cooking until the eggs are set, and the filling is warm.
Serve with extra freshly chopped basil, salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
This loaded Greek omelette is a light dinner or fulfilling breakfast delicious served on its own or with some light sides like:
- Baby Spinach Salad or just Fresh Spinach
- Tomato Slices
If you have some allergy to any of the ingredients listed in the recipe, I am providing some easy swaps for you below.
- Dairy-Free – You can use any dairy-free cheese alternative instead of feta or skip it and add a pinch of nutritional yeast for a boost of cheese flavor.
- Onion-Free – You can skip onion in the recipe or replace it with shallots.
Frequently Asked Questions
Below are the answers to your most frequent questions about this Greek Omelette recipe:
Can I Skip Sundried Tomatoes?
Yes, you can skip the sundried tomatoes or replace them with roasted bell pepper.
Since they are often sold in oil, drain and pat dry before adding to the recipe to avoid too much oil.
Can I Add Other Cheese?
Yes, for a melted cheese option, try Parmesan cheese or hard grated mozzarella.
You can use it in combination with feta or on its own as a feta replacement.
Can I Use Different Olives?
Green olives or black olives taste great as well but kalamata olives or sweeter, soft, and less bitter, or strong in flavor which is the perfect choice for any Greek-style recipe.
