Breakfast for dinner is always a winner. (Unintentional rhyme, I swear.)
I have long been a fan of eggs, bacon, muffins, french toast, pancakes and waffles at dinnertime. Even a cinnamon roll on occasion. Not every day, but once in a while? It’s just so ridiculous, you can’t not love it!
(Let’s be clear: Smoothies are not dinner.)
But dinner for breakfast? Also great. Trust me on this.
I’m not talking about eating warmed up leftovers.
I am talking about this Shakshuka Eggs Benedict recipe. It’s a dinner dish turned brunch bite.
Have you ever had shakshuka? It’s a North African dish that’s popular in the Middle East for dinner, but people in Israel eat it for breakfast.
It’s one of our favorite dinner recipes right now, but the breakfast quality gave me the idea to turn it into a brunch dish to share. I’ve been wanting to make it for you for a while.
Essentially, shakshuka consists of eggs poached in a spicy tomato sauce with chickpeas and feta.
The flavors of this vegetarian dish are so bright and warm. The spices include a rich combination of cumin, paprika and chili flakes for a little extra spice.
I use our cast iron skillet to make it on the stove, then pop it in the oven to cook the eggs a little bit longer.
My brunch version is a variation on classic eggs benny, complete with a super easy hollandaise sauce you can make in a blender! (My friend Christine taught me this recipe — so good.)
Plus, the addition of toasted English muffins helps to soak up the sauce.
Drizzled with hollandaise and sprinkled with fresh parsley and feta cheese, this is an easy brunch dish that’s sure to impress.
