Baked Eggs

Hey pixels!! Easter is coming, so I’m going to post a few Easter recipes. This one is healthy and egg based, and you know, we all eat lots of eggs for Easter!


Baked eggs with veggies: this recipe is healthy and yummy. And it’s done in 20′. Are you throwing a brunch for Easter? I recommend this recipe, your guests will be pleased.

You can add vegan bacon if you  want, or mushrooms, to the spinach mixture. It will be great this way, too. Or cook a minced garlic clove with the spinach: a great idea, trust me!!


Ingredients (serve 2):

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (to grease dishes)
  • 6 tablespoons cooked chopped spinach, squeezed to extract excess liquid
  • 2 eggs (4 if you want 2 eggs for each one)
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream/milk
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan/Menorcan cheese
  • 12 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 14 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  •  salt and freshly ground black pepper


Heat oven at 180ºC . Grease two small round gratin dishes with butter. To each dish, add 3 tablespoons spinach. Using your fingers, make a well in each pile of spinach and crack 1 or 2 eggs into each dish.
Nestle 3-4 tomato slices on each dish. Pour 1 tablespoon heavy cream or milk into each dish.
Sprinkle each dish with thyme, nutmeg and grated cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to oven and bake until the cheese is golden brown, the whites of the eggs are set, and the yolks are still slightly soft, about 5-8′.
Serve warm, but allow to cool a bit before eating.
