Crispy bread with yogurt and poached eggs is a famous Turkish breakfast and it can easily become your favorite breakfast to make. Açma Turkish bagels are used traditionally for this recipe but if you can’t find this kind of bread you can use your favorite bread (like croissants, of something else that has a nice texture) or try and make your own Açma bagels, see the recipe here.
