Turkish Simit

Turkish Simit Bagel

Turkish Simit, especially eaten with Turkish tea. Simit is generally served plain, or for breakfast to tea with jelly, jam or cheese. A simit (Turkish) is a circular bread with sesame seeds, very common in Turkey. The characteristics of simit (size, crunchiness/chewiness, etc.) tend to vary by region. In the city of İzmir, simit is known as "gevrek" (literally, 'crisp' in Turkish) although it is very similar to the Istanbul variety.

Simit is also known as "Turkish bagel" in the USA.
