Baked Spinach and Eggs
- 6 cups firmly packed baby spinach
- 4 eggs
- salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese for 1-2 eggs (about 2-3 tablespoons total)
- baking spray for greasing
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray 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 the spinach. Drain the excess water well and 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 and sprinkle the crumbled feta cheese on top.
Place the baking dishes or ramekins on a cookie sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the eggs are set/cooked (whites are set and yolks look firm on the edges) to your liking. Enjoy!
