Crazy Spring weather we are having… it’s hot, cold, warm, cold again! Today there’s a slight chill in the air and the wind is whistling through my windows. More baked breakfast recipes I love to make when the weather is cool are Spinach Ricotta Quiche, Breakfast Pizza and Asparagus Pancetta Potato Hash.

If you don’t have Asagio cheese you can use Parmesan cheese or even feta cheese. I’ve also used frozen organic spinach in a pinch and it works out just fine. You can use any leafy green vegetable you desire, kale or chard would also make great options.

If you want to do this all on the stove, you can easily make 4 wells in the wilted spinach in a large pan and drop the eggs into each one, then cover and cook on low until the eggs are set.

  1. I made this and love it. I cooked all the eggs together in one dish with the spinach. I was also prepping dinner and kind of forgot about the cook time so the eggs overcooked for what I like but it was still tasty. Next time I will spice it up a little more but this is a great way to use up spinach.

  2. Delicious! Just started Weight Watchers, and didn't know what to have for breakfast. Made this and added one minced clove of garlic to the shallot, used Parmesan for the Asiago (it's what I had in the house) and added a dash of cayenne pepper to each egg before they went into the oven (I like a little heat/spice).

  3. We love baked eggs! I often make them when I want something easy with little clean up. I'll have to try this version. We like to make them with a little milk or cream and salt and pepper. -Amber

  4. can i cook these together in the oven in just one pan, by making wells like in the skillet, but in the oven?

  5. So, I bought a HUGE container of baby spinach the other day and I was trying to figure out another way to use some of it for my breakfast besides spinach, mushroom and feta omelets or fritatta's. Came across this recipe and just made it this morning. So Good!!! Thanks again Gina.
