Shakshuka is seriously one of the best culinary creations ever. Some call it “Eggs in Purgatory“, you can call it whatever you want — as long as you make it, and eat it, and hug yourself afterwards.

If you don’t like mushrooms, you’re a weirdo — kidding! You can totally leave them out. You could swap out the expensive chanterelle’s for a more affordable button, shiitake, or portobello variety. You could use bacon instead of sausage, ANY kind of cheese you want — the possibilities are endless.

Served it alongside a fresh green salad and lots of fruit — it was a pretty epic meal. If you’re a lover of quiche, you gotta give this recipe a try.
