Easy Breakfast Shakshuka Recipe
Shakshuka is a one-skillet meal that is perfect for breakfast or dinner. It's a protein-packed, hearty and satisfying meal that's perfect for company or a memorable weekend breakfast. We love serving it with toasted bread.
For the Shakshuka:
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 lb breakfast sausage
- 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 medium onion, (1 cup chopped)
- 28 oz canned whole peeled tomatoes, with their juice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp sugar
- 4 garlic cloves, (1.5 Tbsp minced)
- 1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
- 5 large eggs
To Serve (optional):
- Parmesan grated over the top to serve
- Sliced Bread, buttered and toasted on a skillet
Place a large 12-inch non-reactive skillet over medium heat, add 1 Tbsp olive oil and breakfast sausage. Sauté 5 minutes or until browned, breaking it up with a spatula, then transfer to a plate.
Melt in butter, add diced onion and sauté 4-5 minutes until soft and golden. Add garlic and stir another 30 seconds.
Add tomatoes with their juice and roughly break up the tomatoes with a spatula. Stir in 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp sugar to the pan, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally and breaking up the tomatoes into smaller pieces. Simmer until tomatoes are no longer watery but saucy and thick enough to create wells for the eggs.
Crack in 5 eggs into wells and lightly sprinkle salt on each egg.
Sprinkle cooked sausage around eggs then top with parsley. Cover and simmer on low heat 5-8 min (depending on desired doneness - check at 5 min) or until whites are cooked through and yolks are still soft and moist. Remove from heat and serve with freshly grated parmesan and toasted bread.
