Creamy, Spicy Poached Eggs for an Easy Sunday Morning
Tajn grilled chicken is a punchy cookout centerpiece, and a big mess pasta is a weeknight Roman romp.
Good morning. Theres no better breakfast than the one you make on the Sunday morning of a three-day weekend, at least if youre not working. Theres nothing elegiac about the meal its neither the first one youve cooked after a long week, nor the last one youre making before getting back on the hamster wheel.
Its just breakfast on a day sandwiched between days off: bliss. And if you dont make it too late in the morning, it leaves a whole day to enjoy whatever it is you enjoy when you get the chance: say, a long walk through Griffith Park in Los Angeles, or a session at the skate park in Grant Park in Chicago. (Me, Im going fishing.)
What to make? I like the idea of ilbir (above), poached eggs with yogurt and Aleppo pepper, which our Alexa Weibel adapted from a recipe by zlem Warren, the Turkish cooking teacher. The interplay of the poached eggs with the creamy, garlic-spiked yogurt is a delight, and Ill mop everything up with a warm flatbread or pita.
