Mediterranean Feta Egg Scramble

I love all kinds of breakfast foods and I am always excited to find a new and delicious breakfast recipe that is easy to throw together. This meal absolutely didn't disappoint. The feta cheese adds a savory saltiness to the eggs that is so good. The first time we made this meal I didn't have the roasted red peppers and they were still very good. But trust me, they are even better with the peppers. And you don't have to roast them yourself. You can purchase a jar of them next to all of the other peppers in your local grocery store.

Also, the first time we had this we wrapped the egg mix in warm flour tortillas and it was delicious. The second time I made this I put it on an open faced piece of Double Fiber & Honey toast and it was fabulous. I am sure wrapping it in crepes would be delicious as well.

6 eggs
1/4 c. light sour cream
1/4 tsp. kosher salt (I just used regular)
A few cracks of freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dry basil
1/2 tsp. dry oregano
3/4 c. crumbled feta cheese, plus more for topping (optional)
2 Tbsp. diced roasted red peppers
2 Tbsp. minced green onions
Crepes or warm flour tortillas (optional)

Preheat a skillet over medium heat.

Whisk the eggs, sour cream, salt, pepper, basil, oregano, and garlic powder together. Gently add in the crumbled feta cheese. When the skillet is hot, add 1 tsp. butter and then add the eggs and allow them to begin to set up and then scrape the bottom of the pan to allow the liquid parts to cook. Stir in the roasted red peppers and green onions. Cook eggs until the desired doneness is reached. Serve immediately. If desired, sprinkle with a little extra feta cheese and wrap the scrambled eggs in a crepes or warm flour tortillas.
