Berber Eggs

Berber eggs

Bon Appetit called this recipe Tunisian-style eggs, but we instantly recognized it as a close cousin to the Berber Eggs we had for breakfast in Morocco. We tweaked the recipe slightly, and it was delicious!

Serves 2

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 red bell peppers, cored, chopped or thinly sliced into strips
1/2 large tomato, finely diced
3+ tablespoon harissa paste and/or dried spice mix

Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmallows

  • 6 medium sweet potatoes (more or less, depending on size) Skin-off or on per choice
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Marshmallows

Do-ahead option: pre-roast the sweet potatoes: Wrap them in foil and bake them whole for 1 hour at 400 degrees before slicing them - this provides a softer texture.

Alternatively, slice the raw potatoes thin and add them directly to the casserole; this method results in a firmer texture.
