Mushroom~Spinach Baked Eggs!


How about making your News Years Day Brunch easy and tasty!  It’s a dish that your family will want again!  I did this for our Christmas morning breakfast and we all enjoyed it so much.  It’s something I would even do for dinner.  What I liked about this recipe is you can make it the night before … so on a morning like New Years day, when you are tired, a little hung over perhaps and not feeling like giving it your all in the kitchen, all you have to do is open the fridge, turn on the oven and put in the dish… DONE!!

Mushroom Spinach Baked Eggs


Prep time: 30 minutes       Total Time: 1 hour     Serves: 6

2  Tablespoons exra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing

1 small onion, chopped

1/2 pound white mushrooms, sliced (I chose to use portobello, my favorite)

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

6 cups baby spinach (about 6 ounces)

 slices potato bread, lightly toasted (You can use bread of choice)

6 large eggs

1/2 cup whole milk

3/4 cup shredded gruyere cheese

1.  heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add the onion and cook stirring occasionally, until golden, about 8 minutes.  Add the mushrooms and cook, undisturbed, until they begin to brown, about 2 minutes.  Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 4 more minutes.  Stir in the spinach and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes.  Remove from the heat and let cool.

2.  Brush a 9 by 13 inch baking dish with olive oil.  Arrange the bread in the dish in a single layer with the edges slightly overlapping, then spoon the mushroom spinach mixture on top.  If making ahead, cover and refrigerate overnight.

3.  When ready to bake, preheat the over to 350 degrees.  Crack an egg onto each piece of bread; season with salt and pepper.  Pour the milk evenly over the top and sprinkle with the cheese.  Bake until the egg whites are set, 25 to 30 minutes.

DONE!!  Easy as 1, 2, 3 and tastes amazing!!

I wish my friends and family a Healthy, Happy and safe New Years.  May God’s blessings touch each and everyone of you in 2013.   Never stop believing, never stop dreaming and never, ever stop loving.
