Shashuka, One Skillet Baked Egg Dish
I initially wrote down this recipe back in 2016, after taking a trip to Budapest, Hungary and trying Shakshuka for the first time at an amazing Israeli restaurant in the Jewish quarter called Mazel Tov. It was there that I fell in love! When I came back to the states I wanted to learn how to make this amazing one skillet baked egg dish. I also want to acknowledge that I don’t claim that this recipe is super authentic, and sometimes I change up the cheeses I use, spices and herbs. It’s simply something I really enjoy to make at home! I think it’s important to note that everyone seems to make this dish a little different, this is just the way I do it. I would love any opinions from people who grew up eating this dish! We always strive to honor the cultures that these dishes are inspired by.

Here's How To Make Shakshuka, One Skillet Baked Egg Dish:

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Warm your cast iron skillet over medium heat. Mince onions and garlic. Once the skillet is hot, add your olive oil to the pan and then add in your onion. Cook until onion is translucent, about 5 mins. After the onion is cooked, add in your spices (cumin, cayenne, red pepper flakes and paprika) as well as your minced garlic. Cook for about 1 minute. 
Add the crushed tomatoes, stir and season with salt and pepper. 
Add in a handful of fresh basil, reserving some leaves for garnishing. Cook the tomatoes and basil over medium heat until basil is wilted, about 10 minutes. 
Break up your goat cheese and scatter over top of the tomato sauce. 
Create some space with a spoon to add the eggs in, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Now place into the oven for between 15-25 minutes, depending on how well you liked your eggs cooked. You can also cover your skillet on the stovetop, but we prefer to make it in the oven for a more even cook. 
Garnish with basil, and serve with some bread and you have yourself an amazing meal! 
Serve and enjoy!
