You're going to want to try this breakfast idea! Turkish eggs are made by whipping together feta and yogurt, topping it with spices and fresh herbs, then finishing it off with a perfectly runny egg. If you aren't a fan of a runny yolk, this recipe allows for any type of eggs to go along with it. I personally love a poached or hard-boiled egg! Try it out...👇
