Menemen is a Turkish dish that should be more famous than it is. It’s one of my favorite breakfast (or lunch, or dinner, or whenever) dishes ever. Tomatoes, peppers, good olive oil, eggs, and a little magic. Your mouth won’t know what hit it.
Or maybe it will know exactly what hit it: Tomatoes, peppers, good olive oil, eggs, and a little magic.

This looks pretty easy to make, and tasty! Summer dish when you can get good tomatoes. Never tried grating tomatoes like that, seems easy enough.
We went to Turkey and never had this, but the traditional Turkish “spread” with hard-boiled eggs, bread, cheese, cucumber, olives, tomatoes, and tea. We liked it so well for years I’d re-create a version for us in the summer. I’ll still have tomatoes with breakfast if I’ve got them around and we’re having eggs.
