Shakshouka - Israeli Campfire Breakfast

Shakshouka is another great campfire breakfast.

I tend to think of this dish as a cross between an egg casserole recipe, a poached eggs recipes and a campfire breakfast recipe.

Shakshuka, very popular in Israel and the Middle East, is a dish made of eggs, tomatoes and peppers. It can be served as breakfast, brunch or lunch, and as it is a one-pan dish, it is just as superb as a camping breakfast as it is at home.

You can make it as spicy or as bland as you like. Experiment with chili peppers and sausage, or replace the eggs with tofu. Give it a try - you'll love it
