Baked Eggs With Bacon and Spinach

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Scoutie

This is a very tasty breakfast/brunch dish! For variation, I have added grated sharp cheddar cheese right on top of the English Muffin before adding anything else. I can see many variations of this simple dish. Normally I bake my bacon, but for this recipe I fry it as you need to use a pan anyway. I also use half and half instead of the cream.

Wonderful! I have always enjoyed breakfast at any other meal & this one came in just right last night at about 9:00pm. There were a few of us who had gone to a special meeting for people in homes & all the different departments etc. The meeting was good but left us drained and hungry and I had just cut this out yesterday - so we made it and enjoyed it immensely! We used the regular English muffins with grated sharp cheddar on it, then we divided the spinach among the 4 ramekins with the broken pieces of bacon & then like a hole-in-one (we made the indentation) & broke the egg - & voilá - the dish was oven-read! When we ate it - the only problem I found was not enough bread to sop up the wonderful egg yolks with. Yes, it is a luscious meal - I know that is not a word that is used with savory dishes but it was! Thanks for posting Scoutie. :)
