Sunday Dinner: Baked Eggs with Spinach and Mushrooms

If you love the taste — and the runny center — of fried eggs but don't like the "fried" part of the equation, you should think about baking the eggs. Baked eggs are delicious, simple to make, and wonderful for dinner. Remember eggs aren't just good at breakfast, they're divine any time of day! They make an exceptional vegetarian meal especially when paired with a medley of vegetables. A sprinkling of Parmesan cheese finishes off these baked eggs that are nestled on a bed of mushrooms and spinach.

To take a look at the recipe,

Baked Eggs with Spinach and Mushrooms


  1. 10 oz baby spinach leaves
  2. 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  3. 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  4. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  5. 5 oz mushrooms, thinly sliced (2 cups)
  6. 1/3 cup heavy cream
  7. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  9. 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  10. 4 large eggs
  11. 2 tablespoons finely grated parmesan


  1. Put oven rack in upper third of oven and preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Bring 1/2 inch water to a boil in a 10- to 12-inch ovenproof heavy skillet (not cast-iron), then add half of spinach and cook, turning with tongs, until wilted, about 30 seconds. Add remaining spinach and wilt in same manner, then cook, covered, over moderately high heat until spinach is tender, about 2 minutes.
  3. Drain in a colander and cool under cold running water. Gently squeeze handfuls of spinach to remove as much liquid as possible, then coarsely chop.
  4. Wipe skillet dry, then cook onion and garlic in butter over moderately low heat, stirring, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and increase heat to moderate, then cook, stirring, until mushrooms are softened and have exuded liquid, about 3 minutes.
  5. Stir in cream, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and chopped spinach and bring to a simmer.
  6. Remove skillet from heat and make 4 large indentations in spinach mixture.
  7. Break an egg into each indentation and bake, uncovered, until egg whites are set but yolks are still runny, 7 to 10 minutes. Lightly season eggs with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with cheese.

Serves 4.

I would add cooked ground beef and onions and make a "special". Baked eggs are good any time of the day and very continental.

that doesn't look appetizing, but after reading the ingredient list, it is now a must try.

Technically it is vegetarian, but there are a certain group of vegetarians who don't eat eggs called Lacto vegetarians.

ooooh, looks tasty!! is it actually vegetarian though? I've always been confused as to whether eggs are part of a vegetarian diet or not.

Ugh, this would be my worst nightmare. I hate eggs enough for breakfast, I don't know why anyone would want to ruin dinner, too! Eggs are for putting INTO things, not for eating alone -- yuck.

Alternatively can't you just add the fresh spinach after you have saute'd the mushrooms? Or is is just because there would be too much liquid when the spinach cooks down? I'm lazy so I prefer to avoid having to strain and clean the strainer :)

I love spinach and eggs. Will definitely try this one. Why can't you use cast iron though?
