Shakshuka is a traditional breakfast dish in North Africa, Israel and some parts of the Middle East. It consists of poached eggs served atop a heavily herbed tomato sauce & served with bread.
Given Shakshuka’s origins, the fact that this version contains bacon probably makes it totally inauthentic…but that doesn’t mean it’s not really, really tasty.
We think it’d make a great breakfast or brunch, but you could have it for lunch or dinner too.
We used a caramelized onion, bacon & merlot tomato pasta sauce, but you can substitute other tomato sauces to change the flavor/leave out the bacon (or add your own bacon if you don’t have bacon sauce handy).
