Perfect for a weekend brunch or quick mid-week meal, this recipe is a fun mash-filled twist on the classic Shakshuka, complete with a rich tomato sauce, soft poached eggs and tasty mash balls!

  • 1 x Idahoan Roasted
  • Garlic Perfect Mash pouch
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 100g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp chilli powder, or to taste
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 400g tinned tomatoes
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 red chilli, sliced
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1 tbsp parsley, chopped
  1. Make the Idahoan Perfect Mash according to packet instructions, then leave to cool.
  2. Place a large hob/oven safe dish over a medium heat. Add the olive oil and fry the diced red onion and red pepper for 10 minutes, or until soft.
  3. Halve the cherry tomatoes, add to the pan and cook for 5 mins until softened. Sprinkle over the paprika, cumin and chilli powder and crush in your garlic cloves. Mix in a little more oil if the spices and garlic stick. Cook for one minute until fragrant.
  4. Add the tin of tomatoes, then fill the empty tin a ¼ of the way full with water and stir this into the pan alongside half a teaspoon of sugar. Leave to bubble for 15 mins.
  5. Meanwhile, make your mash balls. Divide the mixture into four and form balls, ready to be nestled into the mixture. Turn on the oven grill to high.
  6. Once the flavours have melded together and your sauce has bubbled to a slightly thicker consistency, add your four mash balls, one in each quarter, pressing down gently so about half the ball is submerged.
  7. Make a well in each quarter using the back of a spoon. Crack an egg into each well and one in the middle of the pan, spooning a little of the hot tomato mixture over the white to contain them slightly. Put under the grill for 5 minutes, until the eggs are cooked.
  8. Remove from the oven and scatter the chopped herbs and sliced red chili to garnish.
