Baked Eggs with Caramelized Mushrooms, Onions, and Spinach

Baked Eggs with Caramelized Mushrooms, Onions, and Spinach

I have been having fun making all sorts of variations of baked eggs like Caprese Baked Eggs, Baked Eggs with Bacon, Tomatoes, and Sharp Cheddar, and Herb Baked Eggs. I was in the mood for an egg dish for breakfast so I looked in my refrigerator to see what I had on hand. I found some leftover diced onion, spinach, and baby button mushrooms so I decided to sauté the combination then add an egg on top and bake it. I served these tasty baked eggs with a piece of really great toast (Dave’s Killer Bread – Good Seed) and they were so fantastic. My husband and I both felt these eggs were rich, creamy, and extra delicious!

How to Make Baked Eggs with Caramelized Mushrooms, Onions, and Spinach:

Ingredients:

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 sweet yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup of baby button mushrooms, sliced in half
  • 1 cup of baby spinach
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tsp milk or heavy cream
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat two small ramekins with cooking spray.

 

Heat the butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, and cook, stirring often, for about 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms, and cook for 2-3 minutes before stirring. Once the mushrooms are golden brown and the onions are tender, add the minced garlic and spinach to the skillet and cook, stirring continuously for 1 minute. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Remove from the skillet and divide equally into the three ramekins.

  6. Wow- this sounds absolutely amazing! I love caramelized onions on everything- in fact had eggs Benedict with caramelized onions and spinach the other day! Mmmmmmm I will try this for sure.

  7. I tried a similar recipe eons ago that was terrible. I think it's because they didn't do like you did – they didn't cook the ingredients enough beforehand. I think your recipe looks like a real winner!!!
