A few months ago my boyfriend and our two boys went out for a Turkish breakfast at a local restaurant. It was such a unique and delicious experience that we decided to recreate it at home!
This basically involved laying the table with lovely shop-bought bits for everyone to help themselves. Help-yourself meals are always popular in our house, and there is zero pressure on the kids to eat everything (obviously I am secretly willing them to, but they often just choose two or three things). We laid out: falafel (I like the Cauldron range); fried halloumi cheese; bread and honey; olives; cucumber; yoghurt and fruit; and rocket and tomato salad. If you wanted to be really authentic you could also include sucuk (spicy and seriously tasty Turkish sausages), eggs, and muska boregi (Turkish pastries filled with feta cheese and herbs – if you can find them!) For the adults we had builders tea Turkish style (black and with sugar!) and the kids had juice. All in all a lovely experience, a chance for the kids to try something different and a reminder that breakfast can be special too!
