Eggs can be breakfast, lunch, or dinner in this spicy, one-pot dish that is believed to have originated in North Africa. It is also the star of any brunch! Eggs are baked in a tomato and pepper sauce spiced with garlic, cumin, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Everything happens in a single cast-iron skillet, so there’s almost no mess to clean! This recipe calls for creamy goat cheese and fresh parsley. Try other herbs like basil or cilantro, or swap goat cheese for feta.
