Besides Sucuklu Yumurta, menemen is another traditional Turkish breakfast dish. Eggs, onion, tomato, green pepper and spices are scrambled together and served with bread.
OTHER BREAKFAST APPEARANCES:
Turkey is a land of fine honey and is the second largest production of honey in the world, next to Chına.
Beekeeping is a key part of Marmaris culture, it’s mountainous regions are popular for pine honey.
The new love of my life, orange peel jam (turunç reçeli).
I’m not a big fan of citrus jams but this was unlike anything I’ve tried before. The orange peels taste as if they’ve been dried and then jellied. I did some digging and found this recipe I’d like to try.
And of course the main ingredients of a Turkish breakfast: cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, olives and cheese.
An added bonus was enjoying freshly squeezed orange juice from the orange tree nearby.
