Spicy Baked Egg with Spinach

I usually have something very quick and easy for breakfast, like this smoothie. On the weekends, I like to have something a little different that usually involves eggs and veggies.

So today I decided to try baking eggs.  This was a simple dish, loaded with veggies, and didn’t require much effort.  And it’s perfect for a meatless Monday meal….which is how I’ll be having it tonight.

Spicy Baked Egg with Spinach


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 5 ounces fresh baby spinach
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese


Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  In a medium pan, heat oil over medium-high heat.  Add onion and bell pepper and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes.  Add spinach and sauté until wilted, about 2 minutes.  Remove from heat.

In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, cumin, salt, pepper and paprika.  Add to onion-spinach mixture and stir.  Divide among 4 oiled ramekins.  Crack an egg into the center of each ramekin and sprinkle with feta.

Bake 12-15 minutes until whites are set but yolks remain soft.
