Moroccan fried eggs could not be simpler…or more delicious.

I did a lot of research on how Moroccan’s cook up their eggs. And while there are obviously various ways to do it, the most common method used by Moroccan’s is to fry their eggs. They simply fry the eggs, break the yolks just a little while still in the pan, and then serve them sprinkled with cumin and a side of bread (lots of bread) and olives. Simple as that.

I added a little crushed red pepper and paprika infused olive oil to give the eggs just a touch of heat. Completely optional, but so good. The one key here is to serve the eggs with plenty of bread and olives. The bread is for soaking up all that yummy runny yolk, and the olives add a nice salty bite. These eggs are perfect for breakfast, lunch or even a breakfast for dinner style meal.

    1. I have and I agree it’s delicious! Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂

  1. Yum! Fried eggs are so good – what a great idea to add a Moroccan twist. Love it!

  2. Your style is unique in comparison to other people I’ve read stuff from. Thanks for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I’ll just book mark this site.

  3. The crispy edges on the fried eggs are perfect! Olives and eggs might sounds like a weird combination, but it’s actually really good. Like you said, they add a salty bite that cuts through the richness of the yolk. I’m very much enjoying the Moroccan theme you have this week. While I’m not Moroccan, I grew up eating similar flavors, so I’m feeling very nostalgic (and hungry).
