Feta Eggs with Zucchini

Viral Feta Eggs with Zucchini

I’ve been seeing these viral feta eggs all over the internet, but I wanted to make them a bit healthier by adding some vegetables. With all the zucchini in my garden, these eggs turned out perfectly! I sautéed grated zucchini and onion, topped the veggies with feta and eggs, and cooked until the eggs were set but
still runny. For more easy egg recipes, try this Omelet Tortilla Breakfast Wrap, Avocado Toast with Egg, and Scrambled Eggs with Cottage Cheese.

Eggs with Zucchini

Why This Recipe Works

  • Healthy: These feta fried eggs are low in carbs and high in protein with 18 grams. The zucchini adds fiber and vitamins A and C, and onions are rich in vitamins B6 and C.
  • Fast and Easy: With only five ingredients, there’s not a ton of prep. Once you grate the vegetables, you can have breakfast ready in under 10 minutes.
  • Delicious: For such a simple recipe with a short ingredient list, you’ll be surprised at how tasty these viral feta eggs are. When the feta melts in the pan, it creates a crispy, cheesy crust for the eggs. It’s so good!

Feta Egg Ingredients

  • Olive Oil in the pan prevents the eggs from sticking.
  • Vegetables: Grate a half cup of zucchini and squeeze our all liquid and a quarter cup of onion.
  • Eggs: You’ll need two large eggs.
  • Feta Cheese: Use one ounce of feta.
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes for some spice

How to Make Healthy Feta Eggs

  • Sauté the Veggies: Heat the oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat, and cook the onion and zucchini until soft and golden.
  • Feta: Sprinkle the cheese over the zucchini and onion and cook for about 30 seconds until melted.
  • Eggs: Crack the eggs and carefully drop them on the feta. Cover the pan and cook on low until the yolks are runny and set.


  • Cheese: If you don’t love feta, try this egg recipe with goat cheese.
  • Vegetables: Swap zucchini for yellow squash.
  • Spices: If you don’t like spicy food, omit the red pepper. You could season them with black pepper or onion or garlic powder.
  • Herbs: Add dried herbs, like oregano or basil, to the eggs.

How to Serve

These eggs are perfect any time of day. You can eat them by themselves or on toast, bagels, or tortillas.

These feta eggs are best eaten right after cooking, for a runny yolk. I don’t recommend making them in advance.

  1. This is really good. Makes me want to keep a shredded zucchini on hand. Fast and lots of flavor. Had with a 60 calorie daves killer bread toast with a bit of hummus. Like others ideas to add mushrooms and or tomato on top too, would be good also. A keeper!

  2. Easy to make and delicious! I grated extra zucchini to use for the next day and only did one egg. I could see using other veggies if you didn’t have zucchini or don’t like zucchini. The feta adds a nice addition of flavor!

  3. Great recipe! I was concerned by the lack of seasonings, but the feta really brings in the flavor factor! Will definitely make again!

  4. I’ve seen this all over the internet and was interested in giving it a try. Made it as directed, put some chopped tomato on top at the end and served with half of a warm pita. Would recommend, and will make again!

  5. Delicious and filling. I grated a whole zucchini and half an onion in advance and when I makee these again tomorrow, it will be even quicker since I won’t need to bother with the grating step. Great recipe.
    (Some recipe editing is recommended. The video doesn’t mention the onions and the recipe doesn’t mention that the red pepper flakes are sprinkled on the eggs at the end. )

  6. This was incredibly simple and delicious!! I will make this regularly going forward! So glad I had everything on hand to make it!

  7. Very good! I didn’t have onion on hand but I added mushrooms and onion powder. I think the onions would have given it more flavor, but I still enjoyed it!

  8. Loved this! A perfect summer meal. I made it for lunch yesterday with zucchini (fantastic) and today with some shredded slaw (so good). I’ll be eating this with rotating veggies for the next while

  9. I happened to have some leftover zucchini from when I made the zucchini turkey meatloaf so I thought what the heck I’ll try it. This was delicious and easy and I would make it again.

  10. This was really surprised how much I liked this, and it was quick and easy to prepare! I’d eat this any time of the day.
