This savory and scrumptious Shakshuka is the ultimate breakfast fix! Typically a middle eastern dish with poached eggs and hearty tomato sauce. The best news is that is made all in one pan and zero fuss or mess!
Serve with crusty bread for dipping the amazing sauce. It also makes for great leftovers.
