    Chef #774230's Note:

    This is a classic Israeli/Sephardic dish. In hebrew Le'Shakshek means "to shake," after you see the finished product you'll understand why it is named this. This is a very easy dish to make and is extremely good for a college student's budget. This is a classic food that always reminds me of Israel. I scoured the internet one night looking for a good recipe and after a lot of experimentation found my favorite recipe. Most of the recipes I found make a lot, but I only needed for one serving, so this just that. In the recipe I say to use a third of a 28 oz can of tomatoes. I personally like more tomatoes, but obviously you can change the recipe according to your tastes, try using only half of the can. I also don't like onions, so I only put very little in, chopped finely. Good Luck and Bete'avon!

    Serves: 1



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Drain most (but not all) liquid from the tomatoes.
    2. 2
      With your hands break apart tomatoes, keep uneven and chunky.
    3. 3
      Put the tomatoes in the pan along with the garlic, salt, paprika, cayenne pepper, tomato paste and olive oil.
    4. 4
      Bring to a simmer and cook uncovered over low heat until thick (about 15 minutes while stirring occasionally).
    5. 5
      When tomato sauce is thick, break egg over cup or bowl (make sure there is no blood or pieces of the shell) then dump the egg into the pan (making sure not to break the yolk). Put the eggs on opposite sides of the pan so they don't blend together.
