Italian Baked Spinach and Egg Recipe with Parmesan Cheese

Last Updated on December 18, 2020 by Diane Hoffmaster

Am I the only person who goes onto Pinterest looking for healthy recipes and then gets sidetracked by things like caramel brownies and fried icecream?  Here I am…just looking at beautiful images of salads and grilled seafood and then WHAM! I am drooling over espresso cupcakes or some such thing. Well, I finally conquered by Pinterest ADD!  I headed over there a few days ago for creative ways to get more dark, leafy greens in my diet and discovered a baked spinach and egg recipe that actually had me drooling! Sprinkle it with a little lemon thyme sea salt right before serving!

I have been trying hard to eat more dark, leafy greens but honestly, it is incredibly hard to find ways to serve them that don’t totally make me want to just skip eating completely.  I have been drinking green smoothies several times a week and putting spinach and arugula on my sandwiches.  I throw leafy things in soup and eat salads when I would rather be eating cookies.  Why am I trying to eat so many greens?  Because my doctor insists that they fight inflammation and I have some chronic pain issues that they suspect is an inflammatory autoimmune response.  So, spinach, kale and broccoli are my new best friends.  This egg recipe made a tasty lunch and I actually uses 3 to 4 CUPS of spinach for this one dish!  Oh, and you should definitely head over to Manila Spoon and see where I got my inspiration from.  She has some amazing recipes on her site!  And let me know if you have a favorite egg recipe that also includes a few leafy greens.  I need all the ideas I can get!

  1. Amy Desrosiers says
    I LOVE eggs so much and actually all these ingredients. This is certainly a power packed meal!
  2. I love spinach and eggs! I always put them into an omelet but never like this. I am so going to try this.
  3. I love spinach with eggs, and frequently add it to my scrambled eggs in the morning. This looks a lot fancier and yummy.
  4. OMG Diane this recipe looks amazing!! I'm going out to get some parmesan cheese to make these tomorrow.
    • it is tasty! I have used Parmesan and Feta and they both work but I think I like the parmesan better!
