FOOD / 15

bri and i are friends for lots of reasons: a shared love for all things creative, a penchant for lazy sundays and an insatiable appetite for baked eggs!  yup, you heard me, baked eggs.  we love’em and you know what else?  we love to share them.  i eat the whites and she eats the yolks and we share whatever is in between (with a side of potatoes, of course).  so today, in honor of this special friendship, i give you baked eggs.

what you’ll need:
• 4 eggs
• 3 slices of thinly sliced prosciutto (or 1/4 cup of cubed pancetta)
• 4 oz of fresh spinach
• 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter, divided
• 1/3 cup heavy cream
• salt (nice flaky salt like maldon is best) and fresh ground pepper

what to do:
• preheat your oven to 350 degrees
• in a small saucepan, saute the prosciutto or pancetta on med/low heat for about 3 minutes, then add the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. once you see those little bubbles all around the edges, remove from heat and let sit for ten minutes

• saute the spinach in a little bit of butter or olive oil just until it’s bright green (which is probably about 3 minutes on med heat). let cool and then coarsely chop.
• also, now is a good time to separate the heavy cream from whatever your chosen salted meat was. easiest thing to do is run it through a strainer.

and now:
•  place 4 ramekins on a baking sheet, add a cube of butter to the bottom of each.  after that, you can divide the spinach and prosciutto four ways and disperse among the ramekins.
• add a tablespoon of heavy cream to each dish and top each with a cracked egg.
• top each of these with an additional teaspoon of cream (yes, we are being decadent) and a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
• pop those babies in the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes, rotating the pan half way through.  keep in mind that the yolks will still be a bit runny, so if you don’t like’em that way just bake them for a bit longer.

viola, there you have it. baked eggs.

feel free to play around with the ingredients. maybe try peppers and bacon instead or add some goat cheese. let us know how it goes. enjoy!

  • 30. Mari  |  February 19th, 2012 at 6:00 am

    Had made baked eggs with not so great results before, but seeing your recipe, made me want to give them another go. We enjoyed them today with a friend and her daughter, and we all thought they were delish!

  • 31. julia  |  February 19th, 2012 at 10:53 am

    I LOVE baked eggs. We make ours with browned butter, green onions, and balsamic vinegar. Delicious.
    I am going to be house sitting soon for a family with 11 chickens, which means lots and lots of fresh eggs, so I am trying to collect new recipes to try out. This looks delicious, and would make a perfect Sunday breakfast.

  • 32. Anna  |  February 24th, 2012 at 8:53 am

    Thank you for this recipe! This was our dinner last night, and it was so so good. Plus, even my picky 2-year-old loved it. Plus, plus, it was so wonderfully affordable. Check it out: http://www.inthenext30days.net/2012/02/good-dinner-for-cheap-post-in-pictures.html

    […] In November when I did my 30 Days: Dinner challenge, I learned the beauty of a meal plan. This month’s Coupon challenge is a compliment and is teaching me to plan a meal around what’s on sale. It’s a different way of thinking, but it’s one that starts me with an idea of at least a base ingredient, like a protein, before I shop. In planning my meals last week, it was revealed that eggs were on sale: two dozen large, store-brand eggs for $3.78, which to me is the perfect excuse to eat breakfast for dinner. (As if I needed an excuse.) Last night’s dinner: Baked Eggs. […]
