Sucuk is a spicy beef sausage, which can be seen hanging in shop windows everywhere in Turkey. You can barbecue these sausages, pan-fry them, or use them in a Turkish pide.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
100g sucuk
20g butter
6 free-range eggs
pul biber, (see note), for sprinkling
crusty bread, to serve

Method

  1. Peel the skin off the sausage, then thinly slice the meat. Heat a frying pan and melt the butter. Cook the sausage over a high heat for 2–3 minutes on each side.
  2. Crack the eggs on top and cook to your heart’s desire; I like my eggs soft and runny, which usually takes 2–3 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle with pul biber and serve warm, with crusty bread.

Note

  • Pul biber is a crushed red powder made from dried aleppo peppers. It is mild to medium in heat, and the Turkish love sprinkling it over just about anything. If you can’t find it in spice shops or Middle Eastern grocery stores, you can use chilli flakes instead.
