Traditionally, a Mediterranean breakfast consists of toasted bread, soft cheese, vegetables, and eggs. It is not uncommon to have fresh fruit served on the side. It is the perfect way to start the day, in my opinion.
Cooking the egg to the right consistency is key. I like my yolk a little runny, so I cook it for about 1-2 minutes per side. If you do not like your yolk runny, then I recommend cooking it for about three minutes per side.
My other tip for making the best egg sandwich is choosing the cheese. A soft feta Bulgarian or Turkish cheese is perfect. I do not recommend using dried Greek cheese, as it will not create a smooth and creamy texture to spread on the toast.

- 2 slices of toasted bread
- 1 tbsp hummus
- 1 handful arugula
- 1 egg
- 6 thinly sliced cucumbers
- ¼ bell pepper
- ½ avocado
- 1 tbsp herb feta spread
COOK THE EGG
- To make an over-medium egg, first heat a skillet of medium heat. Once heated, add a drizzle of olive oil and crack 1-2 eggs (depending on how hungry you are) and cook on each side for about 1-2 minutes. I like my yolk a little runny. If you do not like a runny yolk, continue to cook your egg for about 3 minutes on each side. Now let’s toast the bread.
TOAST THE BREAD
- Place two slices of bread in your toaster to toast.
- On a plate or in a bowl, add about 1/3 cup of double cream or soft feta Bulgarian or Turkish cheese. Do not use dried Greek cheese, it will not work.
- Add dried oregano and dried mint to the cheese and mix until a smooth and creamy spread forms.
PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
- First, smear the first slice of bread with hummus.
- Second, add arugula.
- Third, top the arugula with the egg(s).
- Fourth, top the egg(s) with thinly sliced cucumber.
- Fifth, top the cucumber with thinly sliced bell pepper.
- Sixth, top the bell pepper with creamy avocado.
- Finally, smear the last toasted bread with the feta spread and top the sandwich and take a huge bite! Enjoy!
