Brunch this weekend is inspired by my family's visit to Istanbul in 2013. These Turkish style poached eggs will be a favorite breakfast once you try it!
I will never forget the tastes and smells of Istanbul. The Grand Bazaar is the one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world, and it has an abundance of exotic spices and dried goods on display. The city has over one thousand years of history, and the cuisine reflects this. One dish that comes to mind is Turkish eggs, which are also called Cilbir.
While the full recipe instructions are available below, here are some tips to prepare the best Turkish eggs.
I recommend serving this meal with a toasted slice of crusty bread, and use it to dip into the egg yolks, yogurt, and butter mixture. There is no need to butter the toast, since the butter in the dish will give the bread the perfect flavor.
