Easy Spicy Baked Eggs (Shakshuka) Recipe

Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 190°C.

If you haven’t already, chop the onion, garlic & pepper and set to one side until needed.

Heat a non stick oven proof frying pan over a medium heat. When the pan is hot, add in the olive oil & the onion. Fry for a few minutes until softened & starting to turn golden.

Then add in the garlic and continue cooking, stirring constantly, for 1-2 minutes.

Add in the chopped pepper, harissa pasta & the paprika and give it a really good stir. Fry for approx 5 minutes until the pepper starts to soften a little.

Season to taste with salt then you can do one of two things. Either leave the tomatoes in your oven proof pan and crack over two eggs or you can split it between two oven proof dishes/small cast iron pans and crack an egg into each one.

Bake in the centre of the preheated oven for 6-8 minutes until the egg is cooked to your liking. (Open the oven and have a look in the last couple of minutes as it doesn’t take much for the egg to become over done!)

Serve immediately. If you like you can sprinkle over some chopped parsley and use some nice crusty bread to dunk right in there!
