Eggs Poached in Tomato Sauce – Shakshuka

Poached Eggs in tomato sauceMain

Shakshuka, Eggs Poached in Tomato Sauce makes a wonderful meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is a very popular dish in Israel and Middle East. The original recipe is without sausage but I had to add my own little twist to it. This recipe requires minimal, simple ingredients and very easy and not time consuming to make. I love having some crusty bread with that will mop up the delicious sauce. It is another chance to have eggs for dinner; not just for breakfast. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

    Inessa, there’s no pork in the Shakshuka in the Middle East 😉

  2. This is so delish! We always made it with onions and tomatoes only. But would love to try it this way. Beautiful photography!

    • Thank you Nadia. We tried with and without sausage, and we like with meat better. Especially Hot Italian sausage has all the spices we love 😉

  3. I love Shakshuka, I’ve made it before with eggplant :).
