Magluba – Up Side Down (Chicken & Rice) This is a traditional Palestinian dish that I read about and had to try. It works great for Friday night and even for leftovers. It does take a bit of work, but is easier than it sounds. I made it with chicken, but it can be made with meat or lamb and would be amazing.
Crunchy on the outside and savory aromatic meat filling on the inside. This Middle Eastern Sambousek is bursting with flavor. One of my husbands fav food when he lived in Egypt. Perfect hand food for game day!
Shakshuka may be at the apex of eggs-for-dinner recipes, though in Israel it is breakfast food, a bright, spicy start to the day with a pile of pita or challah served on the side (It also makes excellent brunch or lunch food.) (Photo: Andrew Scrivani for The New York Times)
