Scrambled Eggs with Goat Cheese and Aleppo Pepper
"Supermarket chile flakes are raw heat," says John Beaver, co-owner of Oaktown Spice Shop, one of our favorite shopping spots in Oakland. By contrast, sun-dried, coarsely ground Eastern Mediterranean chile peppers--Aleppo, Marash, and Urfa--"have complexity and nuance and are low- to medium-hot. You can roast and cook with them, but they're really good as a table condiment." In the Sunset Test Kitchen, we love to sprinkle them on roasted chicken and potatoes, avocado toast, green salads, pizza, and especially scrambled eggs.
