Moroccan fried eggs could not be simpler…or more delicious.
I did a lot of research on how Moroccan’s cook up their eggs. And while there are obviously various ways to do it, the most common method used by Moroccan’s is to fry their eggs. They simply fry the eggs, break the yolks just a little while still in the pan, and then serve them sprinkled with cumin and a side of bread (lots of bread) and olives. Simple as that.
I added a little crushed red pepper and paprika infused olive oil to give the eggs just a touch of heat. Completely optional, but so good. The one key here is to serve the eggs with plenty of bread and olives. The bread is for soaking up all that yummy runny yolk, and the olives add a nice salty bite. These eggs are perfect for breakfast, lunch or even a breakfast for dinner style meal.

1. In a small saucepan, combine the olive oil, paprika, crushed red pepper flakes, and saffron over medium heat. Cook 5 minutes to infuse the oil and then remove from the heat.
2. Heat a skillet with a little olive oil or butter over medium-high heat and fry the eggs to your liking. Season with cumin, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and then drizzle with the infused oil. Break the yolk and serve with bread and olives.
