Viral Crispy Feta Fried Eggs

This viral Tik Tok crispy feta egg recipe will up your breakfast game!! Takes only 5 minutes from start to finish!
Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 3 minutes
Course Appetizer, Breakfast, Snack
Cuisine American, Canadian
Servings 1 person


  • 1 non-stick pan


  • 1 egg
  • 1 medium sized wheat tortilla
  • 2 tbsp crumbled feta cheese
  • Few grape tomatoes, chopped
  • sprinkle green onions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp neutral oil I used EVOO


  • In a non-stick skillet, heat up the tortilla until it is lightly brown on both sides.
  • Set tortilla aside on a plate. Without oil, add crumbled feta to the pan in a circle, making sure to leave a bit of room in the middle of the egg. The circumference of the feta should be as wide as the size of your tortilla.
  • Crack and egg in the middle and let the feta crisp up. Add a bit of oil around the edges to get the cheese nice and crispy.
  • Once the egg whites are more settled, add in chopped grape tomatoes, and green onions.
  • Once feta is nice and crispy and egg whites are no longer translucent, turn off the heat and remove the feta egg. Place it on top of the tortilla.
  • Fold the tortilla like a taco and eat as is! Pop the yolk for maximum sauciness and enjoy!


Variation #2: Hot Honey!
Instead of cherry tomatoes and green onions, add a squirt of honey and sprinkle togarashi spice (Japanese spice seasoning) or chili flakes. Enjoy!
