Turkish Eggs Recipe

Turkish Eggs recipe Cilbir is quick to make in the morning, and apart from the poached eggs, everything can be prepared the day before.

覺lb覺r is a Turkish dish consisting of poached eggs and yogurt. It is often served with melted butter and Aleppo pepper. I didnt have the latter, so I just used paprika powder. That also fits very well.

You can also replace the parsley with dill and I could imagine that it would also taste delicious with smoked salmon. The important thing is that you use really good Greek or Turkish yoghurt. And yes, please use the version with 10% fat.

Why are they called Turkish eggs?

Turkish eggs Cilbir is a Turkish dish made of poached eggs served over a bed of yogurt and topped with melted butter, paprika, and dried chili flakes. It is often served with bread or other accompaniments. The name cilbir is derived from the Turkish words 癟il and bir, which mean eyelash and one, respectively. The dish is called cilbir because the soft, poached eggs are said to resemble eyelashes. Cilbir is a popular breakfast or brunch dish in Turkey, and is enjoyed for its rich, creamy flavor and combination of textures.

Do eggs and yogurt go together?

Eggs and yogurt can be used together in a variety of dishes, such as omelets, frittatas, and quiches. They can also be used in baked goods, such as cakes and breads, as a replacement for milk or other liquid ingredients. Yogurt can also be used as a condiment or topping for dishes that include eggs, such as a baked egg casserole or scrambled eggs. In general, eggs and yogurt can be paired together in both sweet and savory dishes, and can be a good source of protein and other nutrients.
