When we consider breakfast eggs, the simple options like hard-boiled or scrambled often come to mind. However, my method of preparation is a bit different. This dish utilizes tomatoes, but it's not the typical shakshuka, although it might seem similar. It's easy and quick to make, satisfying, and it gives you the morning energy boost that we all need. I particularly enjoy making it on cold days when venturing out into the frosty morning seems especially daunting. After enjoying this breakfast, I always feel more refreshed and ready to tackle the day.
