Camp Recipe: Sunday Morning Shakshuka
URJ Crane Lake Camp's favorite Sunday breakfast is our delicious shakshuka recipe. Shakshuka, Hebrew for "all mixed up," is an Israeli breakfast dish consisting of poached eggs in a cumin-spiced tomato, pepper, and onion sauce. Campers and staff alike look forward to the end of the week when our chef whips up this treat. Enjoy!
