“When I was 18 years old, I spent the summer in Israel, working on a beautiful kibbutz,” Gail Simmons recalls. “My first job there was in the chicken house, gathering eggs. I was then transferred to the kitchen, where I was charged with making eggs every morning for hundreds of hungry fellow workers. I developed an ardent affection for humble egg dishes like shakshuka, often known in Italy as Eggs in Purgatory. It’s a popular dish throughout the Middle East and perfect for any meal of the day.” Slideshow: More Delicious Breakfast Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large skillet, heat the oil. Add the onion and fennel and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until softened, 3 minutes. Add both chiles and the bell pepper and season with salt. Cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic, harissa and paprika and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and water and simmer over low heat until the sauce is thickened, 10 minutes.

Step 2    

Crack the eggs into the sauce. Cover and cook over moderately low heat until the whites are firm and the yolks are runny, 5 minutes. Spoon the sauce and eggs into bowls and sprinkle with the parsley and crumbled feta. Serve right away.
