This easy Shakshuka Recipe has simple ingredients but is bold with its flavor!



1 jar prepared tomato sauce

4 eggs

1 cup arugula leaves

2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped

4 slices fresh bread 

2 garlic cloves

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

red pepper flakes, optional

salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat an oven to 325°. Pour the sauce in 4 mini cast iron skillets (or 1 large) and place in the oven for 5 minutes.
  2. Prepare the poached eggs, and nestle them into the sauce along with arugula leaves. (*See Notes if using large skillet).
  3. Heat in the oven for an additional 5 minutes or until desired time for the egg to be cooked hard or runny (it is recommended to leave it a little runny in this recipe).
  4. Mince the garlic cloves. Mix with olive oil and spread on slices of bread to toast.
  5. Top each serving with salt & pepper, fresh basil, and red pepper flakes. Serve with toast.


*If using a large skillet, crack the eggs individually into a separate bowl, and pour into created pockets to nestle them in the sauce. Heat to set in pan, then place in oven at 325 until done.
