I know, I know …. how flipping cute is this breakfast? I bought several mini cast-iron pans (13cm / 5-in diameter) just so that I can make this breakfast for house guests. My version of Shakshuka is super simple: the cooked tomatoes are spiced with ground cumin, cayenne and smoked paprika, then an egg is cracked into the centre and baked to perfection. To finish, I used smoked sea salt flakes to season. TIP: These would be great served with my Keto Breakfast Muffins. Enjoy your brunch!
Heat the oil (or melt the lard) in a pan on the stove top. Add the onions and cook until completely softened and partially caramelised. Add the cumin, cayenne pepper and smoked paprika and stir well, while cooking for an additional 30-45 seconds.
Tip in the can of chopped tomatoes and cook over moderately high heat until the all liquid has cooked out, approximately 5-8 minutes.
Depending on what kind of pan you want to use (I had two cute cast-iron pans), pour the tomato mixture into an oven-friendly pan, and make a hole in the centre. Crack an egg into each hole and place the pans onto a large serving tray (this makes it safe and easy to remove.) Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the egg whites are completely opaque.
Season with smoked sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper. Scatter over freshly chopped parsley - and be mindful that the little pans are HOT. Enjoy!

Since olive oil is somewhat unstable when heated, I do advise you select lard to fry food. It's inexpensive and can be found in the same aisle as butter.
