Sunday Morning Menemen!

First of all, I would like to apologize for not posting in such a long time.  I had lost my camera and it was just found about two week ago. My daughter insisted she did not have it but low and behold she found it between a couple of games while packing to go to the AWA  Convention.  We had a lot going on since then as well, including my sister's birthday party.  I was busy with the party so I am not sure if anyone took any pictures of the food or cake. The cake was Italian Caramel Creme Cake and it was yummy!  And we roasted a whole lamb.  We had every one's favorite rice, İç Pilav, salad and a delicious Vidalia Onion Casserole made by none other than Ange. I will get those recipes and pics posted soon.

My daughter had been wanting some Menemen and since it was Sunday, I decide it would be a good day to whip some up.  The basics of Menemen are sauteing onion, green pepper and tomatoes until soft and then adding in some eggs and cooking softly.  I am not a fan of really soft eggs so I usually serve myself last and keep mine in the pan a few extra minutes.  I added in some feta aka White Cheese or Beyaz Peynir.


Cooking Directions
  1. Saute onions and peppers in the butter until soft.
  2. Add the tomatoes and cook until soft.
  3. Sprinkle the feta over the onions, peppers and tomatoes.
  4. Quickly crack the eggs, put into a small bowl and whisk the eggs until combined.
  5. Pour over the mixture in the pan and stir gently and softly until cooked.
  6. Traditionally this dish is cooked very soft. I prefer mine a little more done so I cook mine a little longer.
  7. Sprinkle with parsley if desired and serve immediately.
