If we are ever confused about what to eat for breakfast, we always have eggs to turn to. This protein-rich food is a breakfast staple, and the best quality about it is that it can be made and consumed in several ways. You can boil it, fry it, poach it or bake it; and you can pair it with any food you like. If you intend to make a powerful breakfast replete with proteins, combine your eggs with spinach and make this swoon-worthy baked spinach and eggs dish that you would want to have every day.
Just like eggs, spinach is also a great source of proteins, along with other nutrients, especially iron. Spinach is known to impart bundles of energy to the body, which makes it a great food to have at the start of the day. Eggs and spinach come together in this 'bowl of energy' for a high-power, high-protein breakfast for those times when you are feeling sluggish and have to drag yourself out of the bed.

Baked Spinach And Eggs Recipe
100 grams spinach
Salt and pepper to taste
Garlic - 5-6 pods
Step 1 - Chop the spinach and soak the leaves in warm water till they wilt.
Step 2 - In a pan, heat some olive oil and fry crushed garlic and onions till they change their colour.
Step 3 - Add tomatoes, salt and black pepper and let the tomatoes cook. Mix the spinach leaves and cook for another minute.
Step 4 - Next, pour the onion and tomato mixture in a microwave-safe bowl. Spread evenly. Make fours deep insertions in the mixture to create deep wells on four corners of the bowl.
Step 5 - Crack an egg over each well; be careful not to break the yolk. You can grate some cheese over it you want your dish to be extra creamy and cheesy.
Step 6 - Keep the bowl in a pre-heated oven and let it bake for 5-7 minutes till the egg white is cooked but the yolk is still runny.
Step 7 - Tale out bowl, sprinkle some oregano and cheese flakes and serve.
