What’s better than poached eggs? How about a one dish pan that takes time to simmer away on it’s own. Helloooo low maintenance. Which is totally the name of the game in our house.

Can we talk about how the anahiem peppers bring just the right amount of heat? The tomatoes the right amount of acidity? The feta the perfect amount of salty cheesiness? And that perfectly poached egg? That just speaks for itself.

Oh hey, remember that Garlic Naan From Scratch we just made? Talk about a match made in heaven…

    This is one of my favourite things to make when we have Breakfast for Dinner. Always a hit. Easy to make and so delicious. Takes the humble egg to a higher level. Great for feeding a crowd at brunch too.

    I love a good shakshuka for both brunch and dinner. It’s such a great dish to serve with a pile of naan bread, as you’ve suggested and I love that it’s jam-packed with spice and umami! This recipe is a fantastic year-round menu option!

    This is an awesome family breakfast. I love a dish that everyone (including the cook) gets to sit down together to eat. The spices in this sauce are totally in my flavor profile too. Pinning for next weekend. Thanks.

    We’re going to be hosting my parents and my in-laws soon after baby arrives, and I’ve been looking for some good brunch recipes. This will be perfect! Seem easy enough to create a double batch. And you can’t beat a one-pan meal. Especially in the midst of such chaos. Haha.
