This Turkish-inspired egg dish is very similar to the way some Mexican egg breakfasts are prepared. Very versatile and you can control the level of spiciness.

2 servings


  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • ¼ cup chopped onion

  • 2 tablespoons diced red bell pepper

  • 2 tablespoons diced Aleppo chiles, or to taste

  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • ¼ cup chopped tomato

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced basil leaves

  • 1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese


  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, chiles, and red pepper flakes. Cook and stir until onions are soft and translucent, 5 to 6 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes, with their juices, and season with salt and pepper. Cook until tomatoes are softened, 4 to 6 minutes.

  2. Add eggs to the skillet, tilting the skillet until eggs cover skillet completely. Do not mix. Cook until eggs are set, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Top with basil and feta cheese.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute green bell peppers for the red, serrano chiles for the Aleppo peppers (since they can be hard to find), and cilantro or parsley for the basil.
