"This is a Turkish style scrambled egg recipe. Usually when the onions are added, it is served as a lunch or dinner....otherwise it is normally served for breakfast or brunch. I put onions in my eggs all the time for breakfast! Serve with toast or crusty bread."

A nice and different way to make scrambled eggs. Never heard of this before but was looking for a way to use up some herbed feta cheese I'd purchased and this was it. All the fresh veggies and herbs went together quickly and was delicious. I may have never heard of this name before but I'll remember it from now on. Sure wish I could figure out how to post photos here as it was pretty to look at too. Served with Pita Bread and of course bacon on the side for DH

Lovely Brunch Egg dish served with whole wheat toast. This recipe would be lovely as a light Supper or lunch entree. I cut the recipe back to 2 eggs but used 1 teaspoon pepper flakes. It'll be made again.

Very enjoyable! The addition of feta was surprising and very enjoyable. The spiciness was mellowed by serving in pita bread. Will make again!
