Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil
½ tablespoon butter, unsalted
2 large shallots
minced
*
10 ounces spinach, frozen
defrosted and drained, 1 package
cup cream
heavy, or up to 1/2 cup
1 x salt and black pepper
to taste
*
1 x nutmeg
freshly grated, to taste, optional
*
8 large eggs

Directions

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Coat 8 muffin tins with cooking spray or grease with butter.

In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil and the butter and sauté 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.

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.

Delicious and creative recipe, we made two versions: one was with proscuitto, and the other was vegetarian. This vegetarian one was really good, the egg came out just perfect, not too runny, not over cooked, and the flavor was creamy and smooth, using a piece of bread to soak the remaining juice on the plate. A great breakfast recipe, and of course it can be all day breakfast!
