Baked Eggs with Wilted Baby Spinach

I found this recipe on one of my favorite blogs, Skinnytaste.  Ryan and I usually eat some form of eggs for breakfast on the weekends but we had never baked eggs before.  Please excuse the poor quality photo taken on my phone:
They turned out to be pretty tasty!  The Skinnytaste recipe calls for shallots, which I didn't have.  Instead, I used a little red onion and yellow onion (from our garden!) AND one clove of garlic.  Spinach should never NOT have garlic, in my opinion.  Here is the originial recipe:

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced shallots
  • 1 1/2 lb baby spinach, large stems removed
  • 4 large eggs
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp shredded Asagio cheese
  • baking spray


Preheat an oven to 400°F. Lightly spray four oven-safe dishes or ramekins with cooking spray.

Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat, add oil, shallots and cook 2-3 minutes. Add spinach, salt and pepper and cook until the spinach wilts, about 2-3 minutes. Mix in Asagio cheese and remove from heat.

Divide the wilted spinach among the oven-safe dishes, making a well in the center of each. Break an egg into each dish and season with salt and pepper. Place the ramekins on one or two rimmed baking sheets and bake until the whites are set and the yolks are firm around the edges but still soft in the center, about 17 minutes or to your liking. Serve immediately.
