Eggs with Yogurt (Cilbir)
by Daniel Rogov
In a small mixing bowl, combine the yogurt, garlic and salt. Divide the mixture into 4 ovenproof ramekins and place in a slow oven to heat through. Add the vinegar to boiling water, and poach the eggs. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place an egg in each ramekin. Sprinkle over with salt and pepper to taste and return to the oven. Melt the butter in a small skillet. Stir in the paprika, and distribute the butter over the eggs. Serve immediately.
