Zucchini and Tomato Baked Eggs

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, I wanted to share a fun internationally-inspired brunch recipe. I love anything I can dip some crusty bread into- and this flavorful Zucchini and Tomato Baked Eggs dish is perfect!

This dish features a South African/Portuguese sauce called PERi-PERi sauce. It brings amazing flavor and spice to any dish via its main ingredient, the African Birds Eye Chili. I love the Nando brand. You can buy it on their site or Amazon Prime– you’ll be hooked!
