Baked Eggs

Baked eggs are as common as the good old flat white on a Melbourne breakfast menu and it’s no wonder – they are delicious.

This little recipe, however, was inspired by the bottom shelf of my fridge – yes, it’s a glamorous life indeed. The marvellous thing about eggs is that they are so versatile. They can transform a boring meal into something decent and substantial – and that’s what breakfast is all about.

This is essentially a one pan fry up, minus the heart attack. In fact if you lose the black pudding you have a pretty healthy meal in front of you – low GI, gluten free and packed with vitamins and minerals. Quick, some-one pass me a Mars bar before I start saying stuff like ‘nutritional density’ and measuring my food by its mineral binding oxalate properties.

Crisis averted, good people, I’ve eaten a slice of cake. Here’s the recipe:

Serves: 2

Prep time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

3 eggs
1 bunch spinach
1 tomato
1/2 onion
1/2 chili
olive oil
salt and pepper
1 slice black pudding (optional)

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.

In a large frying pan heat a little olive oil over a medium heat. Roughly chop the onion and chili and fry until soft. Add in the black pudding (if using), fry for a further minute before adding in the washed spinach leaves. Stir everything together.

Next, make three wells in between the spinach and crack in the eggs. Chop the tomato into rough cubes, dot around the top of the spinach and eggs and bake in the oven for 4-5 minutes until the egg whites have cooked through.

Season with salt and pepper before serving.

One thought on “Baked Eggs

  1. Thanks for this. Exactly what we have in the fridge today, especially as I have some beautiful golden yolked eggs from a farm out in the quintas here, sprinkled with some fresh dried Portuguese oregano.
