Loaded Eggs (Shakshookah)

Hanan Hussein


This is my version of a popular Egyptian breakfast dish native to Alexandria. It is usually cooked with at least one hot pepper but I am not a fan of hot dishes so I use only bell peppers and I also added the spinach recently.
So feel free to make it as hot or as mild as you like.
