Potato Shakshuka 

"On Sunday's we brunch, and what better day to make Shakshuka."


I know, I know it's Monday. I forgot to post this recipe yesterday, anyway... so let's get to it. Shakshuka is a popular go-to breakfast and brunch recipe that features poached eggs in a delicious, spiced tomato-based sauce. 

The dish originates from around Northern Africa and the Middle East and has become very popular in recent years. The word 'shakshuka' derives from Arabic, literally translating to "all mixed up" and is pronounced as "shack-shoe-kah."

I will be sharing my go-to 3 versions of this meal, from the fastest as traditional as it gets recipe, to a recipe that's a bit of a twist and really having it live up to it's "all mixed up" name.

I love how this meal is so quick to whip up and really makes breakfast extra special. It's best to make this in a nonstick pan, it should be served immediately, and you can be as flexible as you want with the ingredients.
