Egg and Potato Scramble

By: Theodora Philippou

This recipe is based on a standard fried potato and egg scramble, but with a Greek twist added via feta cheese and fresh herbs. By frying up the potatoes on the stovetop instead of baking them, you save a fair amount of time. Then just throw in your eggs, veggies, herbs and cheeses and let it melt. The result is a quick and creative breakfast to mix up your morning routine.
