Turkish Poached Eggs

Time: 15-30 Minutes Serves: 2

These Turkish poached eggs are called “cilbir” and involve topping a delicious garlic-dill yogurt with poached eggs and a quick, homemade chili butter. Served with some delicious, thick-sliced Sourdough Loaf to soak it all up!

For a perfectly poached egg, here are some of our best tips:

  1. Prepare your eggs and crack them into a small bowl (1 at a time) so you can easily drop it in to the boiling water.
  2. Use a large metal spoon – a soup spoon would be perfect, and swirl your boiled water & vinegar mixture vigorously. This creates the best whirlpool!
  3. For a runny yolk you want to cook the egg for 2 minutes and 15 seconds.
