Spinach Baked Eggs


serves 4, active time 10 minutes, total time 35 minutes

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups frozen chopped spinach, thawed and gently squeezed
  • 1/2 – 2/3 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper


  1. Melt butter in a skillet, add chopped onion, and cook until transparent, about 4 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add chopped spinach and cook until most of the water that remained in the spinach has evaporated, about 7 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle flour over spinach mixture and stir until well combined. Add 1/2 cup milk and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and allow milk to thicken. If you’re looking for a looser baked egg, add more milk. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring a kettle to a boil.
  3. Divide spinach mixture between 4 ramekins, and crack 1 egg on top of each. Place ramekins in high-rimed baking sheet and pour boiling water in baking dish until it reaches halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake at 350°F until white is set but yolk remains runny, about 23 minutes. Serve with lots of toast for dipping.
