Menemen

Menemen is delicious, spicy scrambled eggs. It can be found in most cafes or breakfast restaurants. It usually has tomatoes, onions, peppers and spices. It is simple to make and one of my favorite Turkish breakfast dishes.

What you will need for one large serving:
2 eggs
1 small onion
1/2 green pepper (paprika/capsicum)
1 tomato
black pepper
salt
oregano
chili pepper- either cut very fine or just sliced open if you want to remove it so it is less spicy
olive oil or butter

*Saute the onion in butter or oil
*After they are translucent, add green pepper and chili pepper
*Once the green peppers are soft, add tomatoes
*Cook until they are soft
*Add eggs
*Cook until eggs are firm, but not dry
*Add spices

Enjoy with bread to soak up the leftover juices.
