Step 1

Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan. Stir in the onions, pepper and chillies. Cook until they begin to soften.

Step 2

Add the tomatoes and sugar, mixing well. Cook until the liquid has reduced, season.

Step 3

Using a wooden spoon, create 4 pockets in the tomato mixture and crack the eggs into them. Cover the pan and cook the eggs over a low heat until just set.

Step 4

Beat the yogurt with the garlic and season. Sprinkle the Menemen with parsley and serve from the frying pan with a dollop of the garlic-flavored yogurt.

These were very good! Because I'm trying to eat more protein, I made these with 4 eggs for 2 of us. I used fewer peppers and onions than stated, but only had the standard size can of tomatoes and they were a bit much. I will try these again and use a can of Rotel (lol, BK) because it's smaller! Also I will try regular yogurt rather than Greek - it was too dense.

This recipe goes right into my new "Private Favorites". It is delicious. The Yogurt/Garlic topper is the secret ingredient that makes this recipe special. I cut the recipe back to one serving & used fresh tomatoes (last of the season from the garden). Didn't have a red Chile pepper so used a jalapeño. This will be made over & over again.

This was really good and a nice way to spruce up breakfast eggs. The sauteed onions and peppers flavored the eggs nicely. Thanks for sharing your recipe, ForeverMama. Made for Culinary Quest 2017 (Turkey).

Delicious, 5 stars all the way. I enjoyed this egg dish so much. I loved the sweetness from the tomatoes and the peppers and the sharp garlic yogurt together... So very good. The runny egg brings it to another level. Thanks so much for sharing a recipe, I will eat again. Made for CQ4
