  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Warm 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Once shimmering, add the onion, bell pepper, and salt. Cook, stirring often, until the onions are tender and turning translucent, about 4 to 6 minutes.

  2. 2

    Add the garlic, cumin, paprika and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring constantly, until nice and fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

  3. 3

    Pour in the crushed tomatoes with their juices Stir, and let the mixture come to a simmer. Reduce the heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook for 5 minutes to give the flavors time to meld.

  4. 4

    Turn off the heat. Taste and add salt and pepper as necessary. Use the back of a spoon to make a well near the perimeter and crack the egg directly into it. Gently spoon a bit of the tomato mixture over the whites to help contain the egg. Repeat with the remaining 4 to 5 eggs, depending on how many you can fit. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper over the eggs.

  5. 5

    While the eggs are cooking make your parsley oil. Combine chopped parsley, cilantro, remaining olive oil and white wine vinegar into a small dish. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and let sit until ready to serve.

  6. 6

    Carefully transfer the skillet to the oven (it’s heavy) and bake for 8 to 12 minutes, checking often once you reach 8 minutes. They are done when the egg whites are an opaque white and the yolks have risen a bit but are still soft. Carefully transfer the hot skillet to a heat-safe surface like the stove. Top with the crumbled feta, parsley cilantro oil, and more red pepper flakes, if desired. Serve in bowls with thick toasted bread on the side
