Who does not like single skillet meals?. Potato egg skillet is one of the one pot meal ideas that you are going to love. This is great for brunch, lunch or even dinner table. A tasty variation to the traditional shakshuka recipe.
There are certain types of egg recipes that I will eat, and eat, and eat. This is a make-it-more-than-five-times kind of meal for me. Aaaand it can be versatile and it is colorful and it is flavorful and the smell is heavenly.
There are so much about this one pot cozy and colorful dish. From the pan-fried potatoes to the green peppers, the soft and creamy eggs WITH THE CHEESE melted over the top, and do not forget the little naughty jalapeno kisses which I - personally- loved the most.
So let's start
Here we are pan frying cute little potato until it gets golden , this will take about 8 minutes.
Add onions, chopped green peppers and saute all for a couple of minutes.
Add the diced tomato and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Take the pan off the heat and make 4 or more dents.
Crack eggs in the dents and add the jalapeno peppers🔥, you can also sautee it with the other veggies I just wanted them to be obvious and clear at the top for my kids' sake.
Sprinkle cheese on top then bake for 15 minutes or to desired doneness. Cut and serve with your favorite bread.
I couldn't have imagined that combining a few simple ingredients that go together so well, will make me want to do the happy dance with every bite.

what type of cheese do you recommend?
It is the four cheese blend, if you do not have it you can use Mozzarella cheese.
Your egg dish looks great and I like the idea of adding Za’atar to it...yum.
Seriously, Za'atar was great with this recipe. Thanks Karen
Love eggs, but not so much for breakfast (I'm rarely that hungry in the morning). Dinner is when I most enjoy them, so this is perfect! Neat dish -- love one-skillet dishes. Thanks!
Joh, I am usually very hungry in the morning but still I feel having something with loads of onions and/or garlic is a bit too much for breakfast, I prefer this over lunch or dinner. Thanks for stopping by.
Your egg potato and cheese casserole is a different variation of shkshooka?
Nimet, you can consider it so although we do not add cheese to shakshouka, it tastes wonderfully with Za'atar. I have another variation of shakshouka that is very popular in Egypt, if you are interested you can check it out here. Thanks for your interest in the recipe I hope you'll try it.
