Dinner Tonight: Baked Eggs with Greens and Cheddar


From Caroline Wright‘s Twenty-Dollar, Twenty-Minute Meals for 4 People, published by Workman Publishing.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 cups baby kale or spinach
  • 4 1/2“ slices baguette
  • 4 ounces Cheddar cheese, sliced
  • 4 large eggs

Preheat the broiler with a rack in the middle position. Arrange four 8-10-ounce ramekins or custard cups on a rimmed baking sheet.

Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the kale and cook, tossing occasionally, until wilted, about 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Divide the greens among the ramekins and top each with a baguette slice and a slice of Cheddar cheese. Crack an egg into each ramekin, season with salt and pepper, and broil, rotating the pan twice, until the egg whites are set, about 8 minutes.

Serves 4.
