This recipe is literally hot off the oven because I’ve just had it for dinner.
Since it’s so simple to make and so tasty (there she goes tooting her own horn, again), I’ve decided to blog it right now.
The BF is away attending some geeky event after work so I was all alone at dinner time. Instead of nuking some gazillion year old frozen casserole, I thought I’d make something from scratch just to soothe my separation anxiety.
# – Simple and delicious spinach and egg bake.
And nothing makes me more happy than gooey egg yolks. You can say that the entire idea of this dinner revolved around the egg yolks.
Also, I had a huge bunch of spinach I got from Tesco for RM0.30 that I had to use up. Yeap, you heard me, 30 Malaysian ringgit cents!!!!!! I love midnight knock-downs :D
- 150 grams of spinach leaves, cleaned
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of parsley flakes or fresh finely chopped parsley
- 3 tablespoons of whipping cream
- Some salt
- Some ground black pepper
- 4 cherry tomatoes, halved
# – First, pour a bit of cooking oil onto a paper towel and wipe it all over an oven safe dish. You can use butter to grease if you want…I was just too lazy to handle butter :P
# – Then, lay the spinach leaves at the bottom of the dish.
# – Season the spinach with some salt.
# – Now, crack 3 eggs over the spinach. Ideally, the yolks should not burst.
# – Sprinkle parsley flakes or fresh chopped parsley all over.
# – Pour about 3 tablespoons of whipping cream. Try to avoid splashing onto the yolks.
# – Season with ground black pepper.
# – And finish it off with a sprinkling of salt.
# – Stick the dish into a pre-heated oven at 160 degrees celcius for 12-13 minutes. 15 minutes if you like the yolks to set, but seriously!??
# – While the dish is still very hot, lay the halved cherry tomatoes all over.
# – Spinach and egg bake, DONE! It was absolutely perfect with buttered toasts :D
Wilted spinach with gooey egg yolks and creamy egg whites interspersed with juicy cherry tomatoes. I don’t know how else to explain it. Absolutely blissful.
I could eat this everyday!!!!
(For the record, the BF separation anxiety thing is a joke)
