Easy Skillet Eggs with Spinach and Fire Roasted Tomatoes Recipe
I think ever culture has their own version of this skillet dish. Widely known as Shashuka, it's a simple and colorful skillet meal that you can have ready and on the table in less than 20 minutes. What is Shashuka? It's basically a dish that poaches eggs in a sauce made with tomatoes and peppers. It's flavored with olive oil, garlic, onions and carefully crafted seasonings of Middle Eastern and North African origin. This is my take on that delicious dish that can be enjoyed for brunch with a side of fruit or potato hash. If you choose to enjoy it for dinner, serve it with a crispy green salad and garlic bread for dipping in the delicious juice from the fire roasted tomatoes. It's simple yet spectacular.

I made my own fire roasted tomatoes and this recipe just worked beautifully with them. This was a big hit with my family. Yum!
Sounds wonderful, thanks so much!
Is there a difference if I am using frozen spinach and crushed fire roasted tomatoes?
You can use frozen spinach if you remove all moisture from it. Crushed tomatoes will be a greater volume than diced.
Same here Linda, and they cook in a snap. Thanks for stopping by, M
