Baked Spinach and Egg

Sugar Free Recipe

This baked spinach and egg with feta cheese is one of my favorite breakfasts. I like to change it up by adding different ingredients. Here’s the basic recipe.

Ingredients

6 cups firmly packed baby spinach or 1 (10 oz or up to 1 lb) bag fresh baby spinach
4 eggs (can increase to 6 if you are using more spinach)
Salt and freshly Ground Pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp crumbled Feta Cheese for 1-2 eggs (about 2-3 Tbsp in total)
Baking spray or a little oil for greasing


Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly spray or grease with a little oil individual ramekins or other small oven safe dishes that can accommodate 1-2 eggs. Set aside.
Place the spinach in a deep skillet or a large frying pan. Add a little water (2-3 Tablespoons). Using medium heat, cook the spinach just until wilted, roughly 3-4 minutes. Use either your hand or a spatula to pack in the spinach. Drain the excess water well especially if you are using frozen spinach.
Distribute the spinach evenly among the prepared ramekins or oven-safe dishes.
Crack 1-2 eggs on top of the spinach. Season lightly with salt and pepper – lightly because Feta cheese is pretty salty on its own. Sprinkle the crumbled feta cheese on top.
Place the baking dishes or ramekins on a cookie sheet and bake for about 15-18 minutes or until the eggs are set/cooked (whites are set and yolks look firm on the edges) to your liking. I like mine well-done but some like eggs that are a little runny. Whatever you like as long as the eggs are substantially cooked inside, it’s fine.
Serve with some toasted bread or rice on the side and tomato juice! A healthy breakfast that will keep you going for hours! Enjoy!
