Eggs with Cheese

(Kasarli Yumurta)

Eggs with Cheese
4-5 thick slices Turkish Kashar or Italian Asiago cheese*
2 eggs
1 tsp butter
Red Pepper, powdered

Melt the butter in a small sized pan at low-medium heat. Crack the eggs. When the white part of eggs start to cook (the bottom of the pan will be white not top). Place the sliced cheeses around egg yolks on the egg white and cover with the lid. When the egg white is cooked, take it from the heat. Do not over cook the egg yolk!

Season with salt and red pepper. Serve immediately as a breakfast or a light meal with freshly baked Turkish bread.

*Asiago cheese is the closest to the Turkish Kaşar Cheese.
