Campfire Shakshuka

The children cut up red onions and peppers and fry them.

We then add a can of tomatoes and one box of passata.

When bubbling the children love to crack in an egg!

Mix a little and serve as a sharing dish with bread (we say 'rip and dip' the bread so they are not double dipping!)
