"This is a Turkish style scrambled egg recipe. Usually when the onions are added, it is served as a lunch or dinner....otherwise it is normally served for breakfast or brunch. I put onions in my eggs all the time for breakfast! Serve with toast or crusty bread."

Lovely Brunch Egg dish served with whole wheat toast. This recipe would be lovely as a light Supper or lunch entree. I cut the recipe back to 2 eggs but used 1 teaspoon pepper flakes. It'll be made again.

Very enjoyable! The addition of feta was surprising and very enjoyable. The spiciness was mellowed by serving in pita bread. Will make again!

This is so good and healthy. I was concerned with scrambling the eggs with tomatoes because often the texture of the eggs suffers, but that was not the case here. I also loved the flavor of the eggs with the feta cheese.
