Eggs with vegetables and cheese; Peynirli, Sebzeli Yumurta

Eggs with tomatoes, spring onions, peppers and crumbled feta, Turkish Style

Eggs with tomatoes, spring onions, peppers and crumbled feta, Turkish Style

 

Eggs done different ways is a big part of Turkish breakfast, my favorite meal of the day. This time, we enjoyed eggs with tomatoes, spring onions, peppers with crumbled feta or Turkish white cheese or beyaz peynir over them. This is the unscrambled version of our beloved Menemen, Turkish scrambled eggs with vegetables. We love it as the children especially enjoy dipping their bread to that glorious runny yolk. The red pepper flakes over the egg gives a delicious bit of heat.

I hope you enjoy this, Afiyet Olsun,

Ozlem

    Özlem’ciğim,

    You DO have a way with eggs. Thanks for the new recipe, sounds delicious. And as far as Turkish bubbly is concerned, I say Yaşasın! I hope this is just the first wine you feature. Archaeologists have opined that wine may have been invented in Anatolia. Turkish wine has such potential, but it needs to be supported which you are doing, thank goodness. Ailene selamlar, sevgilerimizle xoxo J

      Merhaba sevgili Jolee’cigim, many thanks for your kind note! Do love eggs, Turkish style, pleasure to share, glad you enjoyed it. I am very excited about Turkish wines too, so agree with you, we need to create awareness for this amazing heritage of us and such a pleasure to support. And yes, more Turkish wine collaboration will come 🙂 Cok sevgiler, how I wished you could have joined our class from Istanbul!! Ozlem xx

    I think I’ll like this version better than menemen, which sometimes gets a bit too mixed together.

      Loved this one too Annie, great for dipping the bread! Selamlar, Ozlem x

    Most people I know don’t understand why I get so much pleasure from eating eggs but the joy of dipping bread into egg is very special to me. This looks delicious, as ever with your dishes. I love the idea of testing Bellinis – that sounds like my perfect pastime.

      I am with you Phil, love, love eggs! The Bellini with Turkish bubbly Yasasin is amazing, I can’t wait to introduce to folks at our Turkish brunch class on Nov 13th, perfect accompaniment to any good brunch!
