Baked Eggs with Spinach and Tomatoes

Real Simple NOVEMBER 2007

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings
  • Prep time:10 Minutes
  • Other:25 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 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)

Preparation

Heat oven to 400° F.

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.

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.

Divide among individual plates. Add dollops of the cream cheese, if desired.

Tip: To separate an egg, crack the shell on a counter. Working over a bowl, hold the egg upright and separate the shell into halves. Carefully transfer the yolk back and forth from one eggshell half to the other, letting all the white slip out into the bowl.
