Shakshuka Baked eggs with tomato, parsley and feta

These Middle Eastern inspired baked eggs are super easy to make, loaded with flavour. The best part is they taste as good as they smell!
I have chosen to make these in a combination steam oven, which keeps my eggs nice and moist while cooking.
If you are cooking these in a conventional oven, cook at 180c with a lid on/covered in foil until eggs reach the desired consistency.
These recipe is super flexible, you can modify the recipe to meet your taste buds desires!
