If you already love eggs in the morning, you’ll want to try this recipe. It only takes a few minutes and will keep you going all day long. It’s healthy, yet feels indulgent at the same time due to the crispy feta cheese. Paired creamy avocado, fresh arugula and a runny egg, it’s an explosion of flavours!

It’s so fast and easy, and if you have a little extra time you could always spice things up even more with different toppings. Salsa, hot sauce, more veggies, diced bacon and Greek yogurt would all be great additions.

1/4TeaspoonCrushed Red Pepper Flakes
1CupArugulatossed in lemon juice and olive oil
Start by heating a nonstick pan, on the stove, over medium heat.
While the pan is heating up, crumble the feta cheese by placing the brick of feta into a bowl and using a fork to break it into small chunks.
Once the pan is hot, add in the crumbled feta cheese in a circular shape.
Next, crack an egg into the center of the feta cheese ring and season with black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes. I recommend skipping the salt, as the feta cheese is already salty!
Allow the egg to cook until the edges are nice and crispy – this should take approximately 2-5 minutes.
While the egg is cooking, prepare the breakfast taco.
Warm the tortilla on the stove, over an open flame, until it’s soft and pliable.
Next, mash the avocado and spread it across the tortilla.
Add the arugula to a small bowl and toss it with olive oil and lemon juice. Then, place it on top of the tortilla
Finally, once the egg is done, remove it from the pan and add it to the tortilla. Serve immediately, and enjoy!
