Baked Eggs with Spinach and Parmesan

I adore eggs. However there is a danger that I may turn into one soon. They are just so easy and quick to have for lunch and with all the baking I do there is always a multitude of them in the house. Up to this my favourite has been the poached egg, tricky to get right but when you have mastered it, completely delicious! However after trying these little pots of delight for lunch they are a whiskers breadth away from being in the lead!

Serves 2

2 handfuls of spinach
2 free range eggs
Grating of parmesan
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 180 degrees
Wilt spinach in a saucepan with a knob of butter
Butter the ramekins and place wilted spinach on bottom
Crack the eggs into the centre of the ramekins
Top with a grating of parmesan, salt, pepper and another little knob of butter.
Place in oven for 12-15 mins until there is only a slight wobble in the centre.

So many different variations of baked eggs to try out. Lunch has just got more eggciting! Sorry, couldn't resist!


  1. Sounds delish Paula. Also do poached egg a lot for lunch as it's so quick after work & have to get that daytime bit of protein.
    This will make a lovely change from egg on toast, thanks!

  2. Thanks Elaine for reading! I getting stuck in a poached egg rut so need to add some variety!!

  3. Paula,
    Do you have chickens? You should get a few if you do not. Or even a duck or two!
    Lovely recipe and photos.

  4. Sounds fab, will have as always have these ingredients in the house and to be honest I still haven't mastered a poached egg *Scarleh!*
