    We enjoyed this dish for breakfast one morning at the North Fla gathering and it is fantastic!

     Was really glad to meet you Ahron. Tell the Mrs that she needs to join us next year.

    I love this because its different! There is a dinner version thats meatballs in a similar sauce with the eggs done the same way at the end. But its Moroccan ,mostly done with lamb as a sort of a tagine. I cook it from time to time. 

    The spelling I have ( like I  care about spelling) for Ahrons dish is Chakchouka. I have it with variations,zucchini ,eggplant, mergez sausage but all the same in principle.

    Pretty good breakfast if you had a big one the night before.

     Ahron .Thats the one[​IMG]  I have that cookbook I went to its launch here in Sydney.He signed my copy & I gave him a jar of my harrissa that I  used to make for restaurants.

    The launch was at a restaurant & they served food from the TV series/book. It was a great night out .He is a really down to earth regular guy & funny in an unscripted way.

    If I  can find some decent mergez sausage I will do the Shakshuka that way & post it.

    Seems like we have very similiar tastes[​IMG]

    Just gave this a whirl today.

    replaced the cumin with seafood seasoning from Pensy's, and used sambal (chili pepper paste) instead of the peppers.  It was awesome and will certainly be a repeat player here.  Thanks!
