Poached Eggs With Harissa Oil

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Jamilahs_Kitchen

I came up with this on a whim because I love Harissa and I love poached eggs. Kicks it up a bit :) Please adjust the amount of Harissa to your liking and multiply the Harissa oil as needed depending on the amount of eggs or the amount of oil you want on each egg.

Very tasty eggs! I like things spicy so the harissa was a great addition. Served on whole wheat toast and enjoyed a great breakfast - thanks for sharing your recipe!
