Meandering Eggs

Meandering Eggs

1 medium onion, finely chopped

8 oz ham, chopped into cubes or sliced finely

1 Tbl chopped garlic

4 cups fresh spinach

1 cup of heavy cream plus 3-4 Tbl

4-5 eggs

Salt and pepper



  • Preheat the oven to 400F.

  • Saute the onions until translucent in a heavy oven-safe skillet on the stovetop.  Add the ham and cook on medium-low until heated through.

  • Add the garlic and saute for just 60 seconds before adding the spinach.

  • Toss the spinach around with a pair of tongs until it has wilted and is evenly dispersed with the ham, onions, and garlic.  This is a good time to check for seasonings.

  • Add ½ cup of the heavy cream, and cook over medium heat until the cream is reduced by half.  Stir in the remaining cream and check for seasonings again.

  • Remove the skillet from the heat. Crack the eggs over the top of the mixture and dot each egg with a bit of cream before placing the whole skillet in the oven.

  • Bake until the egg whites are cooked and the yolks are still soft; about 20 minutes.


This is excellent served on toast or potatoes for breakfast, or with vegetables and sausages for dinner, not to mention by itself.
