Breakfast Favourites: Spicy Eggs on Turkish Toast

I’m always on the look out for new breakfast recipes – especially ones that do something different with eggs. I love the use of sumac for a Middle Eastern flavour in this simple recipe…


Serves 4

  • 2 large ripe tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup coriander leaves, chopped
  • ground sumac, to taste
  • 1/2 Turkish loaf
  • spray olive oil
  • 4 eggs
A new take on eggs using sumac for Middle Eastern flavour


  1. Combine the tomatoes, onion and coriander leaves in a bowl. Season with sumac.
  2. Cut the bread into 2 portions, then cut each in half horizontally. Toast both sides of the bread.
  3. Spray a non-stick frying pan lightly with oil, and cook the eggs to your liking.
  4. Spoon the tomato mixture onto the toast, and top with an egg. Sprinkle with a little extra sumac.

Note: Sumac is a spice used in Middle Eastern cooking, with a citrus flavour. It is available from the supermarket in ground form.
