Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the onion and pepper for a few minutes. Add the tomatoes and wait until they have released their juices and everything is softened. Add the aleppo pepper and oregano to the pan along with salt and pepper to taste and mix in.
  • Break the eggs into a bowl and whisk together with a fork.
