baked eggs with chard

28 Jul

We recently spent a wonderful weekend up on Orcas Island.  Well, wonderful except for me falling off my bike.  Well, technically, I was still attached to my bike.  I’m still trying to perfect getting out of my clip-on pedals when I come to a stop.  Sometimes it feels like rubbing your tummy and patting your head.  Or chewing gum and walking.  It’s just not as easy as it looks.

We headed to Rose’s Bakery for breakfast before catching the ferry home and were wowed by their baked eggs.  If you are ever up in the San Juan Islands, this is a restaurant to check out.  I even went out and bought a shallow gratin dish to recreate it at home.  I’m still trying to get the yolks to turn out perfectly…mine have been completely cooked each time I have made this.  I would like them to be slightly runny.

Slightly carmelized onions, lightly sautéed greens from the garden and eggs layed only hours before cooking.  I feel like we are extending our lives every time we eat this!

Baked Eggs with Chard

  • 1/4 cup purple onion, sliced thin
  • 3 cups fresh greens, such as rainbow chard or swiss chard
  • olive oil non-stick spray
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 eggs

Preheat oven to 375.  Spray shallow baking dish with non-stick spray.

In a non-stick skillet coated with olive oil non-stick spray, saute onions until soft and slightly brown.  Add greens and toss until wilted.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Place in baking dish and crack eggs on top.  Cover lightly with foil and bake until eggs are done to your liking.

    Kelly hasn’t been put off by the spill. She keeps going out for bike rides. When the fit is dialed in riding a bike is a lot of fun, even for several hours.
    This meal was one of those that makes you reevaluate what breakfast means. We had a similar experience with cassoulet from a French cafe at Pike Place. Fortunately, this is much easier to make. Just don’t overcook the eggs.
