Saucí Romesco Breakfasts #1

Yield: 1 serving

Time: about 15 minutes

We all know eggs are for any time of the day. Baked egg dishes are delicious and easy to make, with unlimited variations!

I love eggs in many forms, but lately I’ve been making various versions of baked egg dishes. This one happens to be a spinach, sausage, cheese one, with Saucí Romesco. It’s a few minutes to get it together, then about 10minutes in the oven or toaster oven.

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • about 2 handfuls of spinach ( and/or broccoli, cauliflower, kale, or other veggies)
  • 1 hot italian sausage, or breakfast sausage (or other vegetarian alternative)
  • about 2oz sharp cheese (a sharp cheddar works well, but any sharp melting cheese would do)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2-4 tbsp Saucí Romesco

Preparation:

  1. Bring a cast iron or oven-proof pan to medium heat and add the olive oil.
  2. Sauté the sausage (if using it) until it is beginning to cook on the edges of the pieces.
  3. Add the spinach and keep stirring, until it is just wilting.
  4. Remove the pan from from heat.
  5. Spread the sausage/veggie mixture around the bottom of the pan, and add 2-4 tablespoons of Saucí Romesco on top. Roughly spread it around to cover.
  6. Add the cheese on top of the Romesco.
  7. Bring the toaster oven or oven to 400deg.
  8. Crack the eggs on top of everything, grind some salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Add the pan to the oven and let cook for 10-15 minutes until the whites of the eggs have set and the yolk is cooked how you like it.
  10. Carefully remove the pan using an oven mitt, setting it down on a hot plate or trivet. Let it cool a few minutes and eat breakfast right out of the pan!
