This savory egg bake recipe is delicious way to start off the day! It’s almost like a southwestern version of Shakshuka, flavored with paprika, cumin, and spicy chorizo. We opted to add black beans to this skillet egg bake to round out the lower carb and dairy-free dish, but you can feel free to omit for paleo or Whole30.

Any oven safe skillet will work here. If you are using cast iron, make sure it is enameled as prolonged tomato exposure can ruin the seasoning on a regular cast iron skillet.

    This was so good and a great dinner meal as well. I used 3/4 lb bulk chorizo, which also worked well. A couple ingredients listed are not included in the directions, so I just added the salt and cumin when adding the tomatoes. Added a half can of black beans, which really added to the flavor. A great hearty meal!

    I just found your web site via a facebook friend recommendation and I have to say I am so impressed . Anything I have tried has been so good. Thanks!

    As a new mom and someone who has been focused on Whole Foods and is gluten and dairy free … I am always on the look out for easy quick whole food meals that pack a lot of flavor and this recipe did just that. It is definitely going to be in rotation. My husband even used leftovers to make a loaded tostada the next day!
