Heat your Traeger Grill to 180∞C as per the instructions.

Place a cast-iron frying pan on the grill. Add a good splash of EVOO, then the diced tomatoes and shallot and cook for about 10 minutes or until they start to reduce. Stir in the smoked paprika. Make indents in the tomato mixture and crack in the eggs, then sprinkle over the feta. 

At the same time, place the bacon rashers and jalapeño’s on the grill beside the pan. Close the lid and cook for another 15 minutes. Once the bacon is cooked, add eight rashers to the pan, reserving the last rasher for the salsa.

Dice the jalapeño and reserved bacon and toss into a bowl.

Squeeze the lemon juice over the diced jalapeño and bacon and season with a little salt and EVOO. Stir through the chives.

Serve the shakshuka with the bacon salsa, toast and coffee.
