From the Test Kitchen

The word shakshouka means “a mixture” in Arabic slang. Throughout North Africa and the Middle East, this dish of eggs poached in a spiced tomato sauce is just as popular for breakfast as it is for dinner. To round out the meal, we added fingerling potatoes to the mixture, and a crisp, bright salad of Bibb lettuce with a lemon and Dijon vinaigrette on the side.
