Fast & Easy Dinner: Baked Eggs with Spinach and Tomatoes

Fast & Easy Dinner: Baked Eggs with Spinach and Tomatoes

If your dearest happens to be a vegetarian, make him baked eggs for a romantic dinner tonight. Baked eggs — while not overly glamorous — are delicately delicious. Their simple elegance is sexy, especially when cooked with a garlic, tomato, and spinach mixture. A dollop of cream cheese is a decadent finish. For a full meal start with a cheese plate paired with dried fruit, honey, and crackers; finish with chocolate molten cakes. To drink? It's Valentine's Day so celebrate with a bottle of bubbly!

Baked Eggs with Spinach and Tomatoes
From Real Simple magazine

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
Kosher salt and pepper
2 8-ounce bunches spinach, trimmed
8 eggs, separated (yolks kept whole, if possible)
4 ounces cream cheese (optional)

  1. Heat oven to 400° F.
  2. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and simmer for 3 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until it begins to wilt, 1 minute. Transfer to a 2-quart baking dish.
  3. Beat the egg whites until foamy, about 30 seconds, then pour them over the spinach mixture. Carefully place the whole yolks over the top. Bake until the whites are set, 20 to 22 minutes.
  4. Divide among individual plates. Add dollops of the cream cheese, if desired.

Serves 4.

Holy Crap, I want to eat this! It looks amazing! Too bad 2 eggs is not enough to fill me up! I would probably have to get some egg whites and add em in! I never buy whole eggs ever really either - which is kinda bad cause the yolk can be very good for you! but who knows, maybe when I am feeling inspired I will buckle down and make this! (along with 50 billion other recipes I would love to make! haha)

I would use carton egg whites. I have a phobia with the white connecting part of the egg. :sick:
