I fell in love with Shakshuka, or baked eggs, while travelling through North Africa and The Middle East a few years back.  From Morocco through to Turkey this became a staple and I would happily eat it for breakfast lunch or dinner.

There are so many variations, but this recipe is a combination of the favourite bits of many different ones I tried while travelling.

It’s always great for reminiscing about care-free times when all I worried about was where I would find my next baked eggs! 🙂
