2-3 servings
Prep Time: 7 minutes
Cooking time: 12 minutes

2 medium tomatoes, peeled and diced (alternatively, use tomato puree)
2 tablespoons butter
2 green peppers, thinly sliced (a finely chopped large bell pepper would do great as well)
2 eggs
6 slices of sucuk, sliced into stripes (60 gr, sucuk is a dry, spicy and fermented Turkish meat. Alternatively, you can use chorizo)
2 slices of pastırma, finely sliced (20 gr, pastırma is a very spicy, air-dried cured beef. Bacon, prosciutto works good as well.)
5 tablespoons grated kaşar cheese (70-75 gr, any kind of fresh melting cheese that works like mozzarella, young cheddar or gouda)
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

• Heat a small frying pan on low heat and add the butter.
• Add in the green peppers when the butter is barely browned.
• Fry the peppers for about two minutes.
• Stir in the tomatoes and simmer for 7-8 minutes with the lid on until tomatoes are soft.
• Then, mash the tomatoes with a masher.
• Add in the sucuk, pastırma and a tablespoon of grated kaşar cheese.
• Give it a stir and add salt to your taste, unless you are using a salty cured meat.
• Mix in the eggs. Place the rest of the kaşar cheese on top.
• Sprinkle the red pepper flakes and cook for another minute until the cheese melts.
• Dip in your crispy bread and enjoy it with a glass of Turkish tea!
