Make

  1. Heat oven to 450F / 232C.
  2. On a sheet pan, toss potatoes with oil (portion for potatoes). Cover pan tightly with foil. Roast for 10 minutes to let potatoes start cooking.
  3. After 10 minutes, remove foil from potatoes and flip with a spatula. Season with some salt and pepper.
  4. Return potatoes to the oven and continue roasting until tender, 10 to 15 minutes more.
  5. When potatoes are nearly finished roasting, heat a large nonstick pan with oil (portion for tacos) over medium heat. Add eggs and stir gently to scramble until cooked to your liking, 4 to 6 minutes. In the last minute of cooking, season eggs with some salt and pepper. Top with Ras-el-Hanout.
  6. Warm tortillas according to package directions.
  7. Assemble tacos by filling tortillas with eggs, crumbled feta, cucumbers, tomatoes, and yogurt.
  8. Serve chermoula over potatoes (it’s great in the tacos too!).
  9. Enjoy tacos with potatoes on the side.

Nice meal! Just felt a little chaotic to pull together since most everything needed to be done the night of. Used zataar in the eggs and was really nice.

Used fingerling potatoes and cooked them in the airfryer at 375 ~15 minutes. So tasty!

This was really good overall. I agree with the commenter who didn’t love the cucumber/egg combo - something about the texture didn’t work for me. But the flavors were great here, and this was a fun take on breakfast tacos.

Liked an earlier suggestion to include the potatoes in the tacos. Chopped the tomatoes and cucumbers super tiny and I think I like that better than if they had been big. Should have doubled the chermola sauce when we made it - ran out of that well before we were done with the tacos.

Loved the chermula. Not a huge fan of the combo of egg, cucumber for some reason. Kids ate it up!
