  • Cast Iron Skillet


  • 2 tbs olive oil divided
  • ½ onion minced
  • 1 lbs ground lamb
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon harissa
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon powdered garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbs tomato paste
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 3 to 6 eggs
  • 3 tbs olives chopped
  • Fresh parsley & thyme
  • Serve with naan if desired tzatziki, and olive oil


Cook the Lamb:

  • Heat 1 tbs of olive oil a large heavy skillet over medium high heat until the oil shimmers. 
  • Add the chopped onion and saute 5 minutes. 
  • Add the ground lamb and cook, browning through and draining off any fat as needed. 
  • Stir in the harissa, tarragon, cumin cardamom and tomato paste and stir to combine. Cook for 30 seconds longer.
  • Allow the lamb to crisp a bit over low heat while you finish the recipe.

Poach the Eggs:

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil and reduce heat to a low simmer. 
  • Drop the eggs in one at a time, slowly and allow to poach 4 minutes. 
  • Carefully remove from the water and drain. Don't have a grill for camping? Just fry the eggs instead and enjoy.

Char the tomatoes:

  • Toss the tomatoes in the remaining 1 tbs olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of salt. 
  • Char the tomatoes over the open flame 
  • OR: Toss onto a baking sheet and place in the oven under the broiler until bursting and charred, 3 to 5 minutes with a watchful eye.

Put it all together:

  • Toss the tomatoes into the ground lamb, arrange the eggs over over top and garnish with olives, parsley, thyme, and additional salt and pepper. 
  • Serve with naan, tzatziki sauce, and olive oil for dipping if desired and enjoy.
