Breakfast Suggestions

(Kahvalti Ornekleri)

Breakfast Suggestions
I posted the Classic Turkish Breakfast a few months ago, and here's another post with more suggestions for breakfast.

Bread with tomato paste:
Mix tomato paste with oregano, extra virgin olive oil and crushed red pepper. Spread on fresh Turkish bread.

Bread with extra virgin olive oil:
Pour extra virgin olive oil on a plate, sprinkle some oregano, red pepper, black pepper on top, then soak one side of a slice of fresh Turkish bread in the mixture.

Bread with feta cheese:
Mix crumbled white (feta) cheese, parsley (chopped), red pepper (ground) and extra virgin olive oil with a fork, then spread this mixture on a slice of bread. Set the oven to grill. Put the bread on the tray and place in the oven. Grill for a few minutes until the edge of the bread turns light brown.

Bread with egg:
Remove a small round piece from the middle of a bread slice. Pour 1 tsp of olive oil into a pan. Place the bread slice in it. Break an egg into the empty space in the center of the bread and cover the lid. Cook until the egg white is cooked over low heat, do not over cook the yolk! Sprinkle some red pepper, salt and pepper on top and serve.

Bread with black olive paste:
Just spread some black olive paste, sprinkle some oregano and some crushed red pepper on a slice of fresh Turkish bread and enjoy:)

You can make this colorful, healthy and delicious breakfast plate for your family on the weekends for breakfast or even as supper.... Bon apettit...

Mm, I like ideas for a savory breakfast a lot, Binnur. We usually have sweet things, so this is a good change.

Great breakfast suggestions! How I hate western, ie British/USA breakfasts with their enormous portions and everything fried (esp in the UK). One of the things I do when I travel is to ask to have what the locals/staff are eating for breakfast and not what they try to give you as a "western" or continental breakfast. That's where Turkey was brilliant - no need to have to ask for a proper breakfast, everywhere we stayed just had Turkish breakfasts on offer.

Capital idea about the tomato-pepper spread! I just made a batch fresh from my garden using spicy peppers, oregano and other fresh ingredients.

I added a few things to make the spread more robust:

jalapeno chile, no seeds

walnuts (blend with paste until homogenized)

10ml red wine vinegar

5ml aged balsamic vinegar
