Shakshuka is my new favorite breakfast item. It is loaded with flavor, is easy to make and everything is made in one skillet. Best of all most of the ingredients you probably already have in your pantry!

What is Shakshuka

Shakshuka is an easy healthy breakfast recipe that originated in Israel. It is made by simmering onions, tomatoes and spices in a flavorful sauce then it is topped with eggs, feta and cilantro. It is perfect for breakfast or for dinner!

How to make Shakshuka

The sauce starts with onions cooked until golden brown and caramelized. I cook the onions for 20 minutes to deepen the flavor.

Next I add in the spices and cook them for 2 minutes. Blooming the spices before adding the tomatoes adds an extra depth of flavor. After the spices I add in the diced tomatoes and let them simmer for 15 minutes until the sauce is thickened and reduced.

Next I carefully top the sauce with eggs and bake for 8 minutes until the egg whites are cooked and the yolks start to set. The trick is to still have a runny yolk!

Once the eggs are set remove from the oven and serve immediately with fresh cilantro and a sprinkle of feta cheese.

What to serve with Shakshuka

I love serving Shakshuka with a crispy baguette for dipping. If you make this for dinner it would be great along side a side salad, Mediterranean Salsa or roasted potatoes to soak up the amazing tomato sauce.

  • One of my favorite dishes. I’ve made so many variations, and they’ve all been wonderful. I made a version of yours for Christmas morning, and served it with sous vide flank steak with chimichurri. Very festive!!!

  • Great! Now I have a good alternative to omelette, which I have been cooking for a long time. It’s nice that for cooking this dish does not need a lot of time.
