Egyptian Food and Recipes

Time for Breakfast

The nutritional experts tell us that we should start every day with a good breakfast. Here is a typical Egyptian breakfast, easy but also a little more exotic than, say, a western omelet.

Shakshukat beed iskandarani Hardboiled eggs a la Alexandria

* 1 onion very finely chopped

* 2-3 ripe tomatoes

* 3-6 hardboiled eggs

* cooking oil

* salt and pepper

Peel and slice the tomatoes inch thick. Fry the onion until it softens, then add the tomatoes and cook for 10-12 minutes. Shell the eggs, leave whole and slide onto the tomato mixture. Cook for 5 minutes. To serve, remove the eggs, halve, arrange in a serving dish and cover with the tomato mixture.
