After eating delicious Turkish breakfasts for two weeks, when we returned home we started to go through withdrawal. So we decided to make our own!
Below is a photo of the breakfast spread we were treated to every day – can you handle all this goodness? Fresh, healthy and filling, a Turkish breakfast is the best way to kick start your day. I love the relaxed nature of the spread – every day I would assemble something different. Should I make a little tomato and cheese sandwich today? Meat and cucumber? How about everything? And olives! So many olives.
Homemade Turkish breakfast
My boyfriend and I attempted our version of a Turkish breakfast, complete with Turkish coffee and an Ottoman trivet! I think this is going to become a regular weekend breakfast treat. So easy to put together and this breakfast kept us going all day on a busy Saturday until dinnertime. I love how we brought some of Turkey back home with us.
