    This savory and scrumptious Shakshuka is the ultimate breakfast fix! Typically, a middle eastern dish with poached eggs and hearty tomato sauce. The best news is that is made all in one pan and zero fuss or mess! The sauce is great for dipping and makes for great leftovers or meal prep for the week.
