Farkat Batata aka Scrambled Eggs with Potatoes

Updated: Sep 12, 2023

No April Fool's joke here, but Farkat Batata is the best way you can enjoy eggs and potatoes together. My mom has made this for me for year and now it's time I make it my own and share it with you all. Even though there are eggs in it, it's actually enjoyed as a dinner appetizer with pita bread. However, if you like potatoes in the morning like I do, you can make it for breakfast as well! No matter what time of day you make it, it's going to hit the spot. Personally, I tend to make it as a side dish and pair it with a delicious salad. This way I get a well balanced meal of veggies, carbs, and protein. So, let me show you how to make this nutritious and delicious side dish shall we?

Yields: 2-4

Prep time: 15 minutes

Total time: 35 minutes

This recipe is dairy free, gluten free, and vegetarian.



1. 3 russet potatoes

2. 3 eggs

3. Extra virgin olive oil or @traderjoes garlic infused olive oil

4. 1 TSP kosher salt

5. ½ TSP Freshly ground black pepper

6. ½ TSP garlic powder

7. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley

8. Optional: red pepper flakes



1. First, preheat your oven to 450.

2. Next, grab 3 potatoes and peel the skin off.

3. Dice them all up into small cubes. Put them into a bowl.

4. Dry them well with a towel to get the excess water out. Then add onto a baking pan.

5. Drizzle on olive oil of your choice.

6. Sprinkle on 1 TSP of kosher salt, ½ TSP of black pepper, and ½ TSP of garlic powder. Mix well.

7. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

8. Once they're done, grab a large frying pan and drizzle in 1 TBSP of olive oil. Once they olive oil shimmers add in the potatoes.

9. Make a few holes in the pan to crack the eggs.

10. Once you crack the eggs, make sure you scramble them well into the potatoes. Don't stop scrambling them until all the liquid from the eggs have been soaked up by the potatoes. This took about 3-4 minutes.

11. Taste test for salt or black pepper. Add if necessary. You can add ¼ TSP of red pepper flakes if you want them spicier.

12. Turn the heat off, add them to a plate, and garnish with freshly chopped parsley.

13. Enjoy with a fork or scoop them up with pita bread!
