Skillet Baked Eggs with Spinach and Goat Cheese

Skillet Baked Eggs with Spinach and Goat Cheese

This is an easy recipe that only involves 4 ingredients- butter, spinach, goat cheese and eggs. Of course you can add fresh herbs, hot sauce, onions, and all sorts of other veggies, but I felt like keeping it simple today. If you have a big appetite, you might be able to finish this yourself, but this meal is best when shared between two people.

This recipe can also be made without a cast iron skillet. Check out the * at the bottom of this recipe for instructions on how to use a frying pan in place of cast iron.

What you will need:
a cast iron skillet
butter for sauteing
handfuls of spinach
goat cheese
3 eggs (or more if you prefer)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a cast iron skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add spinach by the handfuls and stir until it starts to wilt, no longer then 3 or 4 minutes. Add crumbled goat cheese and then start to carefully crack the eggs into the skillet, making sure not to break the yolks. Transfer to the oven and cook until the egg white start to set, about 10-15 minutes.
