It’s not summer yet, when it’s intolerable to eat complete meals, but we’ve already started to have breakfast for dinners. Do you have breakfast for lunch or dinner? When we leave winter and comforting foods behind, we often prepare breakfast foods for dinner like these Cheese Stuffed Peppers or Menemen, which is a very tasty egg dish with tomatoes and green peppers and have these in addition to sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, olives, various cheeses, jam or honey, which areTurkish typical breakfast foods. And a newly brewed Turkish black tea is almost a must to complement all these.

No other additions, but I do love innovations in cooking, so I added grated carrot and red bell pepper to give my fritters some color and additional flavors.

We love to pair these super tasty and moist fritters with a mint yogurt sauce to give them a bit more freshness! I strongly advice you to do the same. It will become your favorite summer food, or spring as in our case.

    This recipe was quick to put together and easy to fry in a pan. It was delicious. I didn't have yogurt, so I used Asian Oyster Sauce.

      Hi Paula,
      Glad you liked it. Thanks for letting us know and for rating our recipe with 5 stars 🙂

    I have been using this recipe for years. I always use goat cheese instead of feta because it's my favorite. I love it. The family loves it. It's so good with plain yogurt.


    • Yusuf says

      Hi Marissa,
      So glad to har that you love these fritters as much as we do. These taste even better with yogurt, right?


  3. Helen ERTURK says

    Added garlic, cumin, pul biber and black pepper. Also used 1 less egg but added a small amount of natural yoghurt. Delicious!


  4. Michelle says

    Good base recipe. Tasted a bit plain. I'd want to add some spices-maybe cumin and pepper? Some garlic and onion? Also found them a bit eggy. Would probably use one less egg next time.


    • Zerrin says

      Thanks Michelle for the feedback! Adding cumin would really be nice. The feta cheese I use is so strong, which I'm quite happy with. That's why I don't need any additional flavors, but I'm sure adding green onion and garlic will take these fritters to next level.


  5. Emily says

    Could you use coconut oil to fry with instead of olive oil and still get the same product?


    • Zerrin says

      Hi Emily, I've never used coconut oil for frying, so I'm not sure.
