Shakshuka

Shakshuka!!!

This is the ULTIMATE most epic TASTIEST flavorful OUTSTANDING BRUNCH EVER! No but really this is the best crowd pleaser. It's hearty yet healthy and delicious. Shakshuka is a Moroccan breakfast food. This my way of making it. You can make this meal vegetarian by easily switching the sausage to vegetables like mushrooms or spinach! So invite a few friends over and make a homemade brunch for once!
