Whipped Feta-Yogurt:

Using a food processor or a blender combine the Canadian feta, Canadian greek yogurt, cayenne, lemon juice, garlic, dill, salt and pepper. Pulse until completely smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides if needed, about 3 minutes. The feta/yogurt mixture can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Spicy Garlic Butter:

In a small saucepan, melt together the Canadian butter, 2 tablespoons olive oil, garlic, paprika, cumin, and red pepper flakes. Once aromatic, remove from heat and set aside.

Heat 3 tbsp Canadian butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat. When the butter is melted, add the eggs and fry to your liking. Remove the eggs from the pan and set aside.

Add the arugula to a bowl, toss with lemon zest, and juice.

To serve, spread the feta/yogurt mixture into the bottom of each individual serving bowl. Add the eggs, spoon the spicy garlic butter over the eggs and top with arugula, dill, cucumber and feta. Serve with sourdough bread.
