If you’ve ever read Spinach Tiger before you have to know I love eggs and it would only make sense that an individual baked egg and spinach casserole would have to show up one day. This one came from the Secret Recipe Club. This means this is a recipe from another blogger who is also part of the club. It’s a secret until today, reveal day, when we all see who had our recipe blog to choose from and what recipe they picked.
This month, I have Shannon from Searching for Dessert, a former pastry chef with lots of yummy sweet treats. There were lots of desserts I wanted to make and I actually did make the mini flourless chocolate cakes, but my photo didn’t meet my criteria, and so I went over to her site and began a new quest. Oddly enough , I didn’t pick a dessert; I picked something else that caught my eye. Shannon titled her post Individual Winter Casserole , but since it’s April, I thought a renaming was justified.
I only changed a few things but you might want to go see her recipe to get the original. I happened to have two sweet cast iron individual pans that made this a snap.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium shallot, finely diced
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 red potato diced into ½” cubes
- ½ cup tomato sauce (or spaghetti sauce)
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 2 whole eggs
- 1 teaspoons olive oil
- 1½ tablespoons panko (or breadcrumbs)
- Preheat the oven to 375F. In a medium skillet heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Saute onion r 3-5 minutes or until translucent.
- Add paprika, potatoes,into the skillet with the shallots. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until the potatoes are almost done.
- Add tomato sauce.
- Add the spinach leaves to the pan and turn off the heat.
- Divide the potato mixture between two small dishes making an indention in the middle of the mixture. Crack one egg into the indention of the mixture in each dish. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the egg is cooked through.
- Stir the panko into a very small amount of oil and cook, stirring, until the panko is crisp. Sprinkle the panko over the eggs when the dishes come out of the oven.
