Fresh eggs fried in olive oil along with tasty black olives are a great breakfast treat.


  • 8 Large Eggs
  • 12 Black Olives (I Recommend Kalamata or black olives)
  • 16 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil (2 Tablespoons per Egg)
  • Coarse Sea Salt
  • Sliced Toasted Country or Turkish Bread


  1. In a heavy bottomed frying pan heat 8 tablespoons of the oil until very hot.
  2. Add half the olives, and carefully break 4 of the eggs and slide them into the pan.
  3. Cook the eggs over medium-high heat, spooning the hot oil over the whites until the whites are set but the yolk is still runny about 4 minutes.
  4. Remove the eggs, and place two to a plate along with some olives.
  5. Cook the remaining eggs in the same manner.
  6. Serve with a sprinkling of coarse salt on top, along with some sliced, toasted country bread.
