When it comes to all things breakfast/brunch, Shakshuka is the new black. Everyone is doing it, and you should totally follow suit. 
I thought it was something I could only make in a skillet, turns out I’m wrong, but I only wanted to make it in a skillet for pure aesthetic reasons only. You can make it in any ovenproof dish but there is something extra special about bringing it to the table in a skillet. 
I used Michelle Bridge‘s recipe which doesn’t involve putting the skillet in the oven, but you could instead of leaving it on the stove to cook through. Any form of baked eggs recipe would suit this cooking vessel a treat as you can fry off what you need to on the stove, crack in your eggs and whack it into the oven. 
It’s a really tasty, healthy dish for breakfast and is soon becoming a regular at my house at any hour of the day, not just breakfast.

    I’ve been loving shakshuka recently too! Keep meaning to post about it – it makes a great ‘brinner’ (breakfast for dinner) as well!

    This looks so good!
    I would love some grilled sourdough ciabatta to dip in the skillet :)

    Shakshuka is one of my all time favourite breakfast dishes. I agree it looks better in a skillet!

    Looks so good!!! The other day I made it in a baking dish – so yum, but I bet it would look and taste better in a skillet. Need to win one! #iamasian 😛

    Oh my goodness that looks delicious (which I’m sure has nothing to do with my missed lunch and everything to do with it actually looking good!). My one and only attempt at Shakshuka tasted very weird … but with enough potential for us to both agree that a search must be made for a better recipe. Thankfully it looks like it’s a ‘thing’ at the moment and recipes are coming to me, I don’t even have to look for them 😀
