    Add eggs to the skillet, tilting the skillet until eggs cover skillet completely. Do not mix. Cook until eggs are set, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Top with basil and feta cheese.

  • Cook's Note:

    You can substitute green bell peppers for the red, serrano chiles for the Aleppo peppers (since they can be hard to find), and cilantro or parsley for the basil.
