I Made Eggs “Two Days Two Ways!” Here Are Recipes For Baked Eggs And Spinach Eggs!

Time To Make Some Eggs!

A friend of ours once gave Alex a dozen FRESH eggs – yes, they have chickens – so I surprised her with “Eggs Two Days Two Ways” – and wanted to share the recipes!

Barbara’s Classic Baked Eggs!

The idea for baked eggs – and the gorgeous photo by Photographer Marc Hoberman, comes from my good friend Barbara Passino, who included this recipe in her terrific cookbook “Chocolate For Breakfast”!

Barbara ran Napa Valley’s best bed-n-breakfast for many years, and always served Chocolate as part of her two-course breakfast…she released her own cookbook and this recipe is from that book – which you can order from Amazon or any other bookseller – it’s packed with great recipes! I’m hungry so let’s get started!

Sausage, garlic and onion get the process going, sautéed with olive oil and a touch of salt and pepper:

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees. Next up, add some fresh spinach to the mixture.

You see what’s happening here…next, take your baking dish – I used a moderate sized round ramekin, greased up inside with butter – then loaded each one up halfway with my mixture – Barbara adds a splash of cream first, but since I was forced – er, “EAGER” to do a “Whole30” regimen, I left the cream out:

Next is the fun part: crack two eggs into each ramekin, right on top of the sausage mixture…I like to keep the yolk whole, but it doesn’t matter – whatever you like…then I sprinkle Oregano, Thyme and Paprika over them:

The ramekins are next placed in a “bain marie” – a water bath – fill a baking dish half full of warm water and put the ramekins in, then into the oven for 20-25 minutes…an FYI: Barbara’s original recipe includes a combination of cheddar, swiss and parmesan cheese grated over the top, but as you know, I was being “Whole30’d”, so I left that out:

Behold My Baked Eggs!

25 minutes later, here are my baked eggs – I like the yoke who because then you get a big chunk when you dig in…

Thanks to Barbara for her incredible recipe – even though I stuffed my baked eggs with lots of extras, and her recipe is a more refined, classic approach, which I would have done if not for that “Whole30” thing…like I said, this recipe is just one of dozens and dozens that are in her incredible cookbook!

This was part of a “Eggs Two Days Two Ways” food adventure, and Alex posted this on Instagram to celebrate day one:

What did I make her on day two?

Parmesan, Spinach and Garlic Eggs!

This is a favorite mine: saute garlic with olive oil in a large frying pan, then cover the entire pan with spinach:

Create a small hole in the spinach and crack your fresh eggs in them – then sprinkle parmesan cheese on top, cover and let them “poach”!

Now, I’m willing to admit that not every egg dish I try turns out:

This is a gorgeous “bacon wrapped egg stuffed avocado!”

However, I did NOT end up with that picture when I was done…here’s mine:

This is what I ended up with – if you want to see just how terrific this recipe is – and how I completely butchered an effort to make it, just click on my story here!

  1. These look like great egg recipes, John. I like quiche and omelets, but I’m not a fussy eater so pretty much everything goes.


  2. I like both of those recipe ideas, John. I have had baked eggs with spinach for breakfast in hotels, and it is very tasty.
    Best wishes, Pete.
