Paleo Shakshuka Eggs with Sweet Potatoes in Tomato Sauce ! Yum !!

Eggs eggs eggs. Is there any possibility not to have eggs especially in the morning ?

Not in my dictionary at least.

The first thing I tried to cook before I was even tall enough to reach a stove is – you guessed it – EGGS!!

So it only makes sense that I’m so drawn into this tomato sauce simmered eggs – Paleo shakshuka eggs – as soon as I lay my eyes on them.

This is also an excellent breakfast or pre/after workout snack to keep your blood sugar steady.

I added cubes of sweet potato to make it more substantial so I won’t have cravings for toast or bread later on.

Instead of baking it, I cook it on a stovetop and cover the skillet with a lid to “bake” the eggs. Top with your favorite greens/herbs before serving.

So if you love eggs and are craving a savory snack that’s so good for you and the family, give this Paleo shakshuka eggs a try. I guarantee it will become a family favorite !
