Sharing a meal with friends and family is a warm and welcoming way to start the day, and few breakfast traditions are quite as hearty and delicious as the classic Turkish breakfast. 

In Turkey, a typical breakfast is full of delicious and savory flavors, prepared with simple ingredients and vegetables that are either fresh or preserved. The customary spread begins with some homemade cheese, olives, honey, jams,and butter, accompanied by freshly cooked breads like simit, poğaça, or tuzlu, a savory pastry which is perfect for dipping in salty cheese or jam.

Slices of tomatoes, cucumbers, red or green peppers are also often served as part of the breakfast, either plain or marinated, along with sucuk, a type of garlic flavored spiced sausage. Another classic centerpiece of the spread is menemen, a Turkish egg dish which combines tomatoes, peppers, and spices, cooked together until all the ingredients are tender. 

If you’re in the mood for something sweet, you could also look forward to features like kahvalti pastries with egg-rich fillings or a traditional Turkish tea. Made with loose tea leaves, sugar, and a teaspoon of herbs, the beverage is served both hot and cold.

No matter how you assemble your Turkish breakfast, you can be sure of a delicious and flavorful meal full of fresh and healthy ingredients. If you’re ever in Turkey, be sure to try this delicious tradition - you won’t regret it!
