Instructions for making Menemen eggs

Pour the olive oil in your pan.

Add the peppers to the pan and fry them until the peppers change color.

Once the tomatoes are cooked you can add the eggs.

You can whisk the eggs in a separate bowl while the tomatoes are cooing and add them, or you can break the eggs directly into the pan and mix them in the pan.
