Egg in a Basket (Ekmek Ici Yumurta)

2 eggs
2 slices of bread, any kind
2-3 Tbsp butter
Salt and pepper to taste
 
Use a small cup or cookie cutter to cut a hole (or any shape) in the middle of the slice. Place 1 Tbsp of butter in a pan and place it over medium heat. Then, place the slice in the pan and put 1 tsp of butter inside the hole. Crack the egg into a small cup and then release the egg into the bread hole gently. Or you may crack the egg directly into the hole. Sprinkle some salt and pepper. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Carefully lift up the edge and see if the bottom is nice and solid maybe a little bit of golden brownness. Flip it with a wooden spatula. Add some more butter to the pan. You should see the egg has been cooked nicely on side one and into the edges of the bread nicely. Again sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook the second side about a minute or so. The second side takes a little bit less time to cook, but check and feel if the firmness is to your taste. Flip back over as the first side is typically the pretty side, and place it on your plate. Repeat the same steps for the other slices.
ENJOY

2 lb zucchini
1½ cups rice
1 medium onion, chopped finely
½ cup parsley, chopped
1 Tbsp dried mint
1 tsp salt to taste
½ tsp black pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
1 Tbsp tomato paste

Wash the rice and drain. Chop the onions finely and mix all the ingredients but hot water and the zucchinis. Then, wash the zucchinis and make scratches or parallel marks with fork or you may peel them in stripes. Cut the stems. If the zucchinis were long enough cut them in half lengthwise. Then, scrape inside of each piece of zucchini using a small spoon, making them hollow. You may sprinkle with salt inside.
Then, stuff each hollow zucchini with the rice stuffing, leaving about ¼ inch part on top. Cover each stuffed zucchini either with a slice of tomato or stems of the zucchinis. Place them in a pot leaving no room in between. Add hot water about 1 inch to cover the zucchinis and cook over medium-low heat about 30 minutes or until the rice is cooked.
