What To Do With Ground Beef: Beefed Up Shakshouka


Are you ready for the weekend? I am! I love to make a slightly decadent breakfast on the weekend, and last Saturday (or was it Sunday?) I made what I'm calling a Beefed Up Shakshouka. You know how much I love shakshouka (or shakshuka)...there are as many ways to spell the name of this dish as there are ways to make it.

I usually poach eggs in a mixture of canned tomatoes and sauteed onions, but this time around I decided to use leftover ground beef to make a more substantial dish.

Beefed Up Shakshouka
drizzle of olive oil
1/2 pound ground beef
1/4 small red onion, chopped
salt & pepper to taste
14.5 ounces fire roasted tomatoes
1 roasted pepper, diced
2-4 eggs
fresh dill

1. Heat olive oil in a deep skillet. Add ground beef and onions, season with salt and pepper and saute until the ground beef is cooked through.
2. Add tomatoes and red pepper and bring to a simmer.
3. Gently add eggs into the mixture {nestle them!} and simmer covered until the done-ness level you prefer. I like my eggs runny!
4. Serve topped with feta and fresh dill and plenty of toast!

Have a good weekend!
