Baked eggs with Spinach

I love starting the day off with a breakfast like this along with a steaming hot cup of coffee.

These delicious baked eggs make for an impressive presentation. Serve with buttered toast for a simple yet elegant breakfast or brunch.

Buen provecho!



(4 Servings)

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
¼ chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced

  • 2 cups spinach
8 tablespoons heavy cream
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
4 large eggs

  • 8 tablespoons asiago cheese
Salt and pepper

  • Butter
  • Crushed red pepper to your taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, cook for 2 minutes, and then add the spinach and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until the onions are translucent.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Add parsley and remove from the heat.
  4. Rub the inside of 4 small ramekins with butter and then add spinach mixture into each ramekin.
  5. Add 1 egg to each, season with salt and pepper. Add 2 tablespoons heavy cream and 2 tablespoons asiago cheese. Place the ramekins in a baking dish and bake about 8 to 10 minutes. Add crushed red pepper and serve immediately.

Eggs with spinach is my very favorite breakfast on earth. I just love the combination.

I hope you’re feeling great and enjoying the pregnancy. I’ve had a hard time keeping up with comments lately and wish I had time to come by more often.
