Recipe Challenge: Day 13 – Baked Eggs with Spinach & Buttermilk Biscuits

Pin It
Dinner plans changed again due to, well cookies. I’ve been baking cookies all day, and just didn’t have enough time to prepare what was planned.

This is a double recipe day. I made breakfast for dinner because that always wins the kids over on a very hectic day. This first dish didn’t appeal to the kids at all, but they all tried it willingly. It’s called Baked Eggs with Spinach. Simple and quick and healthy for you.

Baked Eggs with Spinach
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 shallots finely chopped
1 lb of baby spinach leaves
4 tablespoons light cream
freshly grated nutmeg
pepper to taste
4 large eggs
4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese finely grated
Preheat the oven to 400F. Heat oil in cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and cook stirring frequently. Continue for about 5 minutes or until soft. Add the spinach and cover to cook for about 4 minutes or until the spinach has wilted. Remove the lid and cook until the liquid has evaporated.
Add cream to the spinach and season with pepper and nutmeg (to taste) I skipped nutmeg all together. Spread the spinach around the cast iron skillet and make 4 wells with the back of a spoon in the mixture. Crack an egg into each well and cover with cheese. Bake in the oven for about 12-15 minutes or until eggs are set.
Since I knew my kids would put up a fuss about spinach I made some Buttermilk Biscuits so they could make a sandwich out of the egg dish. Worked perfectly. If you are doing these two dishes together, start making the biscuits as soon as you start doing the spinach on the stove. When the egg dish is ready to pop in the oven so are the biscuits, and they can both cook at the same time . My day may have been all over the place, but these two paired up perfectly down to the minute they were taken out of the oven.
Yumm Biscuits!


2 cups flour
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter softened
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
1 teaspoon baking soda

Buttermilk Biscuits

Lightly grease a baking sheet. In a large bowl combine the flour, oil salt, baking powder, butter, milk and baking soda. Stir with a wooden spook until a good mixture forms into a smooth batter. Drop by spoonful onto the pan and bake in the 400F oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 12 biscuits

Enjoy! Now I must get back to my cookies!
