The first time I tried these scrambled eggs, I was a little wary. Dill and feta have pretty strong flavours, and I wasn't sure if they would cooperate. But let me tell you, they're a match made in heaven.

Keep It FODMAP Friendly
These low FODMAP scrambled eggs with dill and feta will get your morning off to a great start. Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.
First, eggs are a protein, so they don't have any FODMAPs. That means they won't contribute to your FODMAP load.
However, some people have problems digesting too much protein in one sitting. If you have trouble digesting eggs, try having one egg per sitting or eating your eggs with other foods (like toast or FODMAP friendly fruit).
This recipe also uses feta cheese. Hard cheeses are safe in small servings on the low FODMAP Diet because the lactose is broken down during the fermentation process.
According to Monash University, feta is safe in servings of 1/2 a cup per sitting. This recipe uses 1/4 cup of feta, which works out to 2 tbsp per serving. This is well within the recommended range.
If you want to serve your scrambled eggs on toast you'll need to use gluten-free bread. I like long-rise sourdough bread. Bacteria break down the fructans in the wheat while the bread ferments and rises. This means traditionally made sourdough bread is low FODMAP even though it contains wheat. Sourdough bread is not gluten-free, though, so this is not an option for people with celiac disease.
