Shakshuka is my favorite breakfast but sometimes I crave it for dinner! It is one of Israel's most popular dishes and was inspired and brought over from North Africa. There are so many ways to make shakshuka, with all different kinds of fresh herbs, greens, cheeses...But here is my version of shakshuka and feel free to add feta, goat cheese or fresh mozzarella to the recipe when you add the eggs.
