I just made this for lunch and loved it! I doubled the recipe because it was for hubby and me. The only thing I kept the same as the recipe for one was the red pepper flakes because we are not into very hot food. Accompanied it with white rice since I thought it would be better for lunch. Highly recommend this recipe!

I did the best I could to follow this with what I had and it was delicious! I used homemade yogurt instead of cream, homemade bbq sauce mixed with tomato sauce, and added sliced white mushrooms. So good I will make it again.

I have been looking for an easier Shakshuka recipe than I have seen out there, but this went a slightly different direction...hmmmm....thinking about this.

Just made this. Delicious! The texture and little bit of kick from the pepper flakes was nice. Might experiment eating this over sautéed spinach or adding spinach as a.the base. Could make it a complete meal. :) Really enjoyed eating this and picking up the spicy tomato flavor with the eggs. I would put this in the comfort food category. Thank you Chef John for a new flavorful twist for eggs!
