A delightful blend of Greek and Mexican flavors, this tortilla with smashed avocado and feta-fried eggs is a global breakfast.

Did you know?

Did you know that feta cheese is a protected designation of origin product? This means that only cheese made in certain areas of Greece can be called 'feta'.

Start your day with a vibrant twist on a classic breakfast staple - the Feta & Avocado Sunrise Tortilla, where the Mediterranean meets the heart of Mexico. Imagine a soft, warm tortilla cradle, layered with rich, creamy smashed avocado, infused with a zing of fresh lime, and topped with a perfectly sunny fried egg, speckled with crumbles of sharp feta cheese. This is not just a meal; it's a symphony of flavors and cultures intertwining. The sharpness of the feta, an age-old staple from Greece, contrasts beautifully with the smooth avocado, a beloved fruit of the Aztecs. The finishing squeeze of lime brings this international culinary affair to an invigorating crescendo.

Each ingredient tells a tale; the domestication of avocados dates back to 5000 BC in Central Mexico, while feta cheese has been a Greek tradition for centuries. Together, they create a dish that's steeped in history yet feels contemporary and fresh. It's a skillful balancing act between history and modern palate preferences, delivering a breakfast that's simple to prepare but rich in heritage.


Gather the simple yet flavorful ingredients for this breakfast dish which champions a cross-cultural culinary harmony.

Feta cheese and avocado both offer rich textures and distinct flavors that have been enjoyed since ancient times in their respective cultures.

  • 2 large free-range eggs
  • 100g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 corn tortillas
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Fresh cilantro (optional for garnish)


Follow these simple steps to create a breakfast that's bursting with flavor and tradition, ready in minutes.

  1. Heat a small amount of olive oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Crack the eggs into the pan and sprinkle crumbled feta cheese over them. Fry until the egg whites are set but yolks are still runny, or to your liking.

  4. Warm the corn tortillas in a separate pan or in the microwave until they are soft and pliable.
  5. Spread the smashed avocado evenly onto the warm tortillas.
  6. Top each tortilla with a feta fried egg and season with extra salt and pepper if desired.
