|10||ounces||spinach, frozen||defrosted and drained, 1 package|
|1/3||cup||cream||heavy, or up to 1/2 cup|
|1||x||salt and black pepper||to taste*|
|1||x||nutmeg||freshly grated, to taste*|
|8||slices||deli ham||or prosciutto*|
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil and the butter and saute the shallots for 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the spinach and stir until wilted (if use fresh spinach) or until steaming.
Add in the cream, season to taste with salt and pepper and a little bit of grated nutmeg.
Cook the spinach, stirring frequently, until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 to 6 minutes.
Taste and season with more salt and pepper if needed.
Fold each slice of ham or prosciutto in half and line the nonstick muffin cups with 1 slice of meat each.
Add a heaping tablespoon of the cooked spinach into each of the cups, then crack an egg into each, making sure it stays intact.
Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper on the tops of the eggs.
Bake until set and cooked through, about 15 minutes.
Let the baked eggs cool in the muffin cups for a few minutes.
Remove from the muffin cups and serve warm.
