Mealthy Tip

Removes the seeds and pith of the jalapeño pepper to reduce the heat. Ghee has a higher smoke point than butter or olive oil. To make your own, melt 1/2 cup butter in a small pan. Skim off the milky whey from the top, and use remaining clarified butter to cook.

A delicious, hearty breakfast is not complete without eggs- and quite a few of them I might add. Before making this dish, make sure you have a baguette on hand as you will want to use it to slop up all of the sauce. From the spicy tomato sauce, to the runny egg yolks, this recipe is very easy to make and a crowd pleaser. For a little bit of cheesy goodness, add some shredded Parmesan cheese. You won't be disappointed with this dish.

This is my first time trying shakshuka, it's so delicious. I used butter instead of ghee, and it worked well. I love the jalapeño for some extra spice, it was so tasty. This is the perfect recipe!

I made this recipe, but added bell pepper and cooked it in the sauce. I also added feta cheese and olives for topping. The hint of cinnamon kind of felt out of place to me, but I liked the recipe enough to use as my base for next time. When I think of shakshuka I am reminded of the spice, so I will probably add more jalapeño or serrano pepper next time too.

I skipped the jalapeño all together and made my own homemade ghee. Perfect!

This was really, really good. I enjoyed all the flavors and spice. I did remove the seeds of the jalapeño to reduce some of the heat. Definitely going to make this again.
