Spinach Baked Eggs


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

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.

Sprinkle flour over spinach mixture and stir until well combined. Add milk and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and allow milk to thicken. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring a kettle to a boil.

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 18 minutes.
