Menemen, is a Turkish dish which includes egg, onion, tomato and green peppers (paprika) and spices . Black or Green olives can also be included as ingredients. Turkish sausages such as Sucuk or Pastirma can be added, although this strays from the traditional recipe. It is cooked with butter, although olive oil may also be used. The dish is very similar to the Tunisian Shakshouka.
It is commonly eaten for breakfast with bread.. Turkish Cookery, M. Iin Gunur (1990) ISBN 9-754-79100-7
First, the green peppers and onions are sauteed with the heated butter or oil. Once the onions become soft and lighter in color, the tomatoes and olives are added. Tomatoes should become very soft and also change color. Finally the eggs and spices are added, mixed with the other ingredients and cooked. The eggs should be fully cooked but not dry.
In restaurants, Menemen is usually cooked and served in single-serving metal pans.
