Baked eggs nestled in a bed of creamy spinach flavoured with chorizo and feta cheese makes the ultimate brunch.

Baked eggs with chorizo and spinachI absolutely adore eggs Florentine (pretty much Eggs Benedict where the ham/bacon is substituted for spinach) and used this idea along with one of my other favourites, Huevos Rancheros, to create this spectacular dish. What I love so much about baked eggs is that all the components can be assembled and prepped in advance and you simply crack the eggs into the base before baking. It is the perfect solution to cooking for a crowd whether it’s for an early breakfast, a lazy brunch or a casual supper.

There’s something incredibly indulgent about a perfectly cooked egg, nestled in a bed of creamy spinach flavoured with chorizo and feta cheese. And then you pierce the yolk with your fork and that creamy, yellow yolk mixes with the spinach and you just have nirvana. Like, seriously. Who could resist? Add lots of crusty bread and you have a breakfast fit for kings.

How to make baked eggs

Fry onion, garlic and chorizo until golden brown then add the spinach and cream. Allow to cook for a few minutes before adding the feta cheese. Make a hollow in the mixture and add the eggs. Bake until the eggs are cooked to your preference then serve with crusty bread.

How long does it take egg to cook in the oven?

Depending on your preference, eggs will bake in approximately 5-8 minutes in a 200ºC/400ºF oven. If you want a firmer set yolk, bake the eggs for 8-10 minutes.

    Hi! It’s looks delish! I’ll try it! Question? In between steps 4-5 is when put the ingredients in a dish to go into oven? Or when is that done? (I didn’t see it in recipe) Thanks! P.S. Cracking 1 egg with little of your favorite ingredients into a philo shell tastes good too!! If you want to try 🙂

      Mara, you’ll see at step #7 it says to season the eggs and then place the pan in the oven to bake. 🙂
