This feta cheese and eggs recipe is already vegetarian-friendly, but you can turn it into a vegan-approved dish with a few swaps. Use scrambled tofu (tofu mixed with seasonings and nutritional yeast) or tofu chunks instead of eggs. You can also replace the feta cheese with a dairy-free version. Lastly, double-check that the wraps you’re using are vegan-friendly.
These yummy feta eggs can also be eaten on a gluten-free diet with a simple swap. Use gluten-free wraps or tortillas instead of regular wraps and you’re good to go!

3. Use a spatula to scoop up the crispy base and place each egg onto a separate wrap (Image 3).
4. Top with a drizzle of hot sauce, a sprinkle of salt, chives and coriander. Enjoy! (Image 4).
Note: Try to ensure there aren’t any huge gaps between the feta when forming the ring, this will prevent the egg whites from spreading too far.
A non-stick pan is essential. Anytime you’re working with melted cheese, like these feta cheese eggs, it’s best to use a non-stick pan. This type of pan ensures it’s easier to scoop the eggs/feta cheese out of the pan. It also helps create an easier cleanup after making these Tiktok eggs.
Use a good-quality cheese. Since this crispy eggs dish only uses a few ingredients, the flavour of the feta cheese is more apparent. Create the best-tasting dish by using high-quality cheese.
Don’t overcook the feta eggs. The feta cheese can burn quickly in this crispy feta fried eggs recipe, causing a not-so-pleasant flavour. As soon as the eggs are ready, scoop them up and put them in a wrap. Avoid leaving them in the pan for too long.
Top the pan with a lid. If a runny egg yolk doesn’t fit your tastes, add a lid to the pan to help you create over-medium eggs. This method cooks the eggs with steam, so they’re done more quickly than in an uncovered pan.
Even though feta cheese has a bolder taste than other cheese types, it is quite versatile. You can pair feta with watermelon, pasta, potatoes, salads, and a fried egg (like in this feta eggs dish). This cheese works well with fresh fruit, veggies, Mediterranean dishes, and Italian recipes.
Feta is a type of Greek cheese which is typically made from sheep’s milk. Some types of feta are made from a combination of sheep and cow milk. This cheese has a creamy, salty, tangy taste. It’s a cheese which is made by brining, not cooking.
Feta is typically sold in a block and has a crumbly texture, which makes it easy to use as a topping for items like salads and pasta dishes.
This feta eggs recipe is relatively healthy – it has a good amount of protein from the feta and eggs, healthy fats from the egg yolks, and carbs due to the wraps.
