Betsy loves browsing through food magazines and cookbooks and selecting items for me to try out. Sometimes I think she picks dishes that will stump me… That was not the case with this Bacon and Spinach Baked Eggs recipe though from an old Bon Appetit (09/2010). This dish was very easy and, in my opinion, just a perfect quick breakfast!

I used individual ramekins to make these bacon spinach baked eggs into personal servings but if you don’t have ramekins you could make a larger casserole style dish with the same toppings and fillings like I did in my baked egg casserole a while ago.

The key of course to any baked egg dish is to use the best eggs you can get and not to over-bake them.

Bacon and Spinach Baked Eggs

These baked eggs are actually very easy to make. To start, toast some bread or English muffins (you’ll probably have to cut them down a bit to fit the ramekins if you’re using them).

Meanwhile, get some nice bacon frying in a skillet.

Add some pepper to the bacon and cook it until it’s nice and crispy. It’ll probably take about 8 minutes over medium-high heat to crisp up. Might be a bit longer depending on how thick your bacon is.

Move your bacon to some paper towels to drain and pour out all the oil in the pan except about 1 Tablespoon.

Add all your fresh spinach to the same pan along with a few drops of water and sautee it until it’s wilted. The spinach will cook down really fast and have a great flavor because of the tiny amount of bacon grease.

Filling the Ramekins

You can pile these baked egg ramekins pretty high. Start by making sure to lube up your ramekins with either butter or give them a quick spray with non-stick spray.

Once the ramekins are buttered/sprayed, wedge in a piece of toast or an English muffin.

Toast it!

Next, crumble up the bacon and add it on top of the toast. About a strip per ramekin is enough but you could do 1 1/2 strips if you want to get crazy.

Then evenly divide your spinach between the dishes. Make a little well in the middle of the spinach for your egg to sit.

Crack the egg right in the middle of the dish. Sprinkle the egg with some parmesan, lemon zest, and salt and pepper and you’re in business!

Ready for the oven.

Bake these guys at 350 F˚ until the egg white is set but the yolk is still slightly soft, about 15-20 minutes. Let them cool for a minute and serve them up!

These bacon and spinach baked eggs are really fun to eat. As you break through the layers in the dish, the egg mixes with all the fillings and toast and makes for a really filling breakfast even though it doesn’t look like a huge amount of food.

If you wanted to make this into a larger casserole, I would layer toast in a square baking dish and top with the same ingredients and then crack 4-6 eggs on top and bake it for probably 30 minutes. That would work just fine I think!

  1. That looks wonderful, and easy! And of course, all those flavors together are really classic, like Eggs Florentine. I need to get some ramekins like that….

  2. This sounds really delicious and easy. I guess I'll have to hunt down some ramekins. The filling possibilities could be nearly endless. You think around 30 minutes to set the yolks? Thanks!

    1. If you want them set completely firm, yea… 30 minutes should do it. You also don't need ramekins to make the dish. You can layer the ingredients in a small casserole dish and crack 4-6 eggs on top.

  3. Nick, I love this… I am SO MUCH a breakfast person (my boyfriend is not, and it breaks my heart), and this looks so perfect. I am seriously going to go out and buy some ramekins just so I can make this one day (and probably just one at a time, since I am the only breakfast person I know of). Thanks!

  4. OOOOHHHH, gotta do this. I’m gonna spread a laughing cow wedge on the muffin to boost flavor. I normally just do these one at a time, but this looks SO much easier..

  5. Bought some ramekin from the dollar store and made this yesterday. I added some herbs alongside the spinach and it was darn delicious! So simple yet so good.

  6. I may try this in a couple #3 small cast iron skillets I have instead of ramekins. The possibilities are endless…Thx!
