Breakfast usually features cereals, both regular and oatmeal varieties, as well as various forms of scrambled eggs. Yet eggs have various preparations that may prove to be even more delectable than traditional scrambled eggs. Plus, these dishes can be presented as visually appealing, enhancing the overall culinary experience.

As adults, we often grapple with the task of planning daily meals, especially breakfast. We're not always eager to cook complex and time-consuming meals, and prolonged standing by the stove is hardly an alluring prospect. Doing the same thing daily can be monotonous - after all, even the most delicious dish can lose its charm after a while. Luckily, some recipes allow us to create tasty meals quickly and easily.

One such dish is Turkish eggs. They are a delicious and beautifully presented alternative to classic scrambled or fried eggs. One taste, and you'll understand why this may just become your new favorite breakfast dish!

Making Turkish Eggs


  • Approximately 10.58 ounces of thick natural yogurt,
  • 4 eggs,
  • 2 cloves of garlic,
  • 2 tablespoons of butter,
  • 1 teaspoon of sweet paprika powder,
  • A pinch of hot paprika powder,
  • A handful of parsley,
  • 2 tablespoons of apple vinegar,
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice,
  • Salt and pepper to taste.


  1. To begin, prepare the sauce. Pour the yogurt into a bowl, add garlic that has been put through a press along with the lemon juice. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly and store the mixture in the fridge.
  2. Next, add water to a saucepan along with two tablespoons of apple vinegar. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat. As the water begins to boil, stir rapidly and carefully add an egg into the whirlpool.
  3. Give it a moment till the egg white encases the yolk. After a few moments, the egg will coagulate. Safely remove it with a slotted spoon.
  4. Melt the butter and briefly fry the spices in it, finishing by adding the dill and parsley.
  5. Spread the sauce on a plate, position the eggs over it, and drizzle with herbed butter and spices. Turkish eggs are best served with fresh bread. Enjoy!
