To prepare a full Turkish breakfast:

  1. Choose some or all of the foods above. 
  2. Place them all on the table.
  3. Make an individual portion for yourself by taking a little bit of everything.

To make sucuklu yumurta:

  1. Heat little oil in a frying pan and cook the slices of sucuk about 1 minute per side. Push them on one side of your pan.
  2. Crack the eggs into the pan. No need for adding extra oil or butter. Sucuk releases its own oil when cooking. 
  3. Cook the eggs until the whites are set. 
  4. Scatter the cooked sucuk slices on the eggs and serve immediately.


  1. You can find the recipe links and more information about each food listed here in the post above. 
  2. Turkish breakfast is a large spread and everybody eats whatever they want, and each food has its own nutritional value. So it is hard to give them all here. 
  3. The nutritional facts are only given for sucuklu yumurta (sucuk & eggs) and they are only estimated values.
  4. Cooking time is given only for sucuk & eggs.
