Saffron isn’t a spice that is normally associated with Greek cuisine, but it is incredibly popular. Greek saffron is inexpensive compared to other places it can be found throughout the world and the Greek version is vibrant and filled with flavor.

Greek Style Scrambled Eggs With Saffron Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon Greek olive oil
  • 4 large eggs, scrambled
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground saffron
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated Kefalotiri or other Greek cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh, chopped parsley

How to Make Greek Style Scrambled Eggs With Saffron:

Drizzle the olive oil into a frying pan. Set the heat to medium and let the oil warm for 1-2 minutes.

Pour in the scrambled eggs. Sprinkle with saffron, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Gently scramble in the pan with a wooden spatula so that the ingredients are combined.

When the eggs are nearly set, sprinkle in the cheese and parsley. Serve immediately.
