I found this recipe on a Turkish cooking website and it sounds so good and easy to prepare.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pan, saute the onion with olive oil.
  2. Add the garlic and hash browns (don't defrost), salt and pepper.
  3. Cook for about 10 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring constantly.
  4. Pour the beaten eggs over the potatoes and lightly stir with a wooden spatula.
  5. When the eggs are cooked (don't over-cook) sprinkle parsley and crushed pepper on top. Serve immediately as breakfast or a light meal with Tomato Salad.
  6. * Instead of hash browns, you can use 2 medium sized potatoes. Peel and cut them in cubes and fry in sunflower oil. Then put them on a paper towel to soak up extra oil. Add the fried potatoes and the beaten eggs into the pan at the same time for this dish.
  7. Makes 1 serving.

I really enjoyed this, and loved that it was so easy to make. I used 1 cup of fresh diced potatoes and boiled them until fork-tender; drained them, then proceeded to make this as written. I used a big Vidalia onion. I just added a bit of curry powder and that was a great addition. I also used the optional crushed red peppers. If you love onions like I do, this is a great recipe to try. Thanx for posting this; I'll make this again.

This is such a tasty and quick breakfast! I served it with a side of bacon and that made it a nearly perfect brunch. Bacon, eggs and potatoes, what more could anyone want?!

These were pretty good. I think next time I will cook it at a higher heat to get the onion and potato to brown a bit. Otherwise very light and tasty. Thanks for the recipe!
