Sujuk with Eggs

(Sucuklu Yumurta)

Sujuk with Eggs
Sujuk, the skin removed, sliced

Place the sujuk slices on the skillet. Cook for about 2-3 minutes over low heat, don't dry them! Then turn each slice over quickly with a fork. Make room for the eggs in the middle. Break the eggs and cover with the lid. When the egg white is cooked, take it from the heat. Do not over cook the egg yolk.

Serve Sujuk with freshly baked bread and Turkish Tea for breakfast or lunch. I love to make Sujuk with Eggs for my family for brunch on weekends:)

* You can store Sujuk in the freezer if you like: Remove the skin, slice them up and place them in Ziploc bags. Keep in the freezer. You don't need to defrost when you want to cook them.


Sujuk is a preserved meat product similar to pepperoni. It consists of ground beef or lamb with various spices including cumin, sumac, garlic, salt and red pepper. It can be more or less spicy. You can buy Sucuk from

Hello I hope you and your family are well.
Thank you again and again for your site.

In Melbourne Australia, we can buy sajuk sausages (like the breakfast or bbq sausages, not the dried one. We can get the dried ones too but my husband doesn't prefer them). The only problem is they are quite expensive. Would you have an idea how to make them please?

Thank you- Halimah

Hi Halimah,

I don't make sucuk at home, it really takes time:)
I have link to Turk Market Online Store (Australia & New Zealand)
Would you like to check their prices:)
Take care,

Hello dear binnur
thank you so much. Mmmm I don't like things that take time-lol. I will have a search for the site you mentioned.
By the way, I recently made the burek. My 20 y/o son said it was professional. I can't thank you enough.
Take care
