I’ve been told that this dish is even better than my eggs benedict, which I think is my best breakfast dish! You can substitute another leafy green vegetable for spinach in this recipe, sometimes I substitute kale. Also sometimes I add a second egg for a heartier meal. This dish can also be easily scaled down to two servings, perfect for a romantic weekend brunch!


Baked Eggs with Bacon and Spinach

Makes 4 servings


  • 2 English Muffins, toasted
  • 6 ounces spinach
  • 8 slices smoked bacon
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream


  1. Preheat oven to 400 °F
  2. Cook bacon in a pan until crispy. Remove from pan and reserve drippings.
  3. Add spinach to pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and saute for 1 minute.
  4. Brush ramekins with reserved bacon grease. Add English muffins to each ramekin split side up. Divide spinach between the four ramekins. Crumble bacon evenly between each ramekin. Crack eggs into each ramekin, being careful not to break the yolks. Add one tablespoon of cream to each.
  5. Bake for 14-16 minutes, until whites are set but yolks are still runny. Serve immediately.

This is a delicious, healthy breakfast, great for a weekend morning. You can replace the bacon with mushrooms for a vegetarian option or with pancetta, chicken or some leftover meat if you prefer. I like to use slow cooked beans that have a bit of spice to them. And of course this dish can take a healthy dose of hot sauce for those who love heat!

Spinach, Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Bowl

Makes 1 serving


  • 2 handfuls of washed spinach (if not using baby spinach, cut into bite sized pieces)

  • 2 Tablespoons diced red onion (about 1/6th of a medium red onion)
  • 2 Slices Bacon
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 Cup Black Beans (canned or prepared, I use my Twice Cooked Black Beans)


  1. In a medium pot fill half way with water and add vinegar, bring to a boil.
  2. Add beans to a small pot and bring to a slow simmer. (Or, for a lazier option just reheat them in the microwave!)
  3. Meanwhile cook bacon to your prefered doneness, remove from pan and dice bacon.
  4. In a bowl combine onion, tomato and bacon. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Poach eggs in boiling water.
