Recipe Ingredients for Baked Eggs and Spinach

2 pounds fresh spinach, washed and trimmed
3 tablespoons butter or olive oil
8 eggs
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs

Recipe Directions for Baked Eggs and Spinach

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; salt it. Place the spinach in the water and cook for about a minute, or until it is bright green and tender. Drain well. When it is cool enough to handle, squeeze the moisture from it and chop.

  3. Place the butter or oil in a 9 x 13‐inch baking pan and put the pan in the oven. When the butter melts or the oil is hot, toss the spinach in the pan, stirring to coat with the fat. Spread the spinach out and use the back of a spoon to make 8 little nests in the spinach. Crack 1 egg into each. Top with salt, pepper, cheese, and bread crumbs.

  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the eggs are just set and the whites solidified. Scoop out some spinach with each egg and serve on toast or toasted English muffins.
