About This Recipe:
This is probably the most popular egg dish in Turkey and certainly the most popular one that can be made without uniquely Turkish ingredients that could be hard to find. Try it, and I think you'll like it, but it's guaranteed to taste better with the Mediterranean or the Bosphorus over your shoulder, so come to Turkey for the original.
A Turkish scramble of eggs, tomatoes, peppers, onion and olives. If desired, you can also add crumbled Feta cheese. Just add a Tablespoon or two when the eggs are almost fully set.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Bounaparte for this recipe.

Wait, I thought it was made with ground beef? That's how my neighbors make it?

Sultana ARZU - it's butter NOT olive oil.

I thought menemen had sucuk in it.

I suggest to put one part of garlic instead of onions...

Actually this is not a total correct recipe. It should have more olive oil added and actually a little water to the veggie mix BEFORE you break the eggs in. Not an authentic version.

I threw some tidbits of meat in the veggie mixture before the eggs, and it turned out delicious.

Add 3 tomatoes instead of 2. I replaced the olive with Turkish cheese, put the cheese in before the eggs - trust me its yummy!

Little bit of salt and definitely some garlic in there. Lovely.

Try adding salt/blackpeper during cooking AND a bit of fresh diced parsley is good on top of the dish.
