Simple. Easy. Stress-free.

All things that make a great weeknight dinner in my opinion!

Oh yea, and delicious too of course 😀

This 4 ingredient dinner covers all those bases.

Pesto adds a huge flavor punch to otherwise basic frozen spinach,

And creamy feta bakes up wonderfully alongside farm fresh eggs.

It may not look that pretty, but it sure does taste good 😉

Pesto Feta Egg Bake
Serves 3

  • 10 oz. package frozen spinach
  • 2 tblsp pesto
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 oz. crumbled feta

Watch how easy this is friends!

Microwave the frozen spinach for 3-4 minutes, or until thawed.

Then mix the pesto in with said thawed spinach.

Layer this in the bottom of a smaller baking dish.

Top with crumbled feta.

Then the farm fresh eggs, which have been whisked and seasoned with sea salt & black pepper.

Pop into a 350F for 25-30 minutes, until the egg sets and the edges start to brown (love that!)

Then serve.

Simple. Flavorful. Good.

 

Wouldn’t it be nice if life was as easy as recipes like this sometimes 😉

Nahhhh.

That’d make it no fun…!

But it’s nice every once in a while 😛

Enjoy your ‘almost-Friday’ friends!  “Thursday” is ‘so yesterdayyyyyy’ 😉

  1. What a great egg bake! I love pesto. Deliciousness

  2. I love the addition of pesto here, yum! Great idea!

  3. Girl, you would love “spinach brownies” (http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/spinach-brownies/detail.aspx) – I’ve been making them for years. Use whole wheat flour if you want to make it a little healthier, and also use half the butter the recipe calls for – there are some other helpful suggestions in the ‘most helpful’ reviews section. Mine always turn out more quiche-like than a brownie (i.e. – eat it with a fork), but I think that’s because I use “too much” spinach. I like to chop fresh spinach and sautee it in the butter rather than using frozen spinach and mixing it up with butter later. YUM.

    • oh my goodness what a sneaky (but wonderful) idea!!!! i want to try making these for sure, thanks so much for sharing the link!

  4. This looks awesome, reminds me of spanikopita, one of my favorite Greek dishes! Next time you should totally make it… 😉

  5. Durn you & your feta recipes! I can’t eat feta right now (I’m pregnant & I should not eat soft cheeses) & this looks INCREDIBLE! I will have to file this away for an after baby recipe!!

  6. I do believe I will make this for my breakfasts next week. You always give me the best, most approachable recipes!

  7. I need to start making egg-bakes & fritattas for breakfasts. I’m getting sick of granola bars and PB toast! This is a great idea for one of them 🙂

  8. That is my kind of recipe! I love that you could have it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

  9. Had this tonight for dinner – wonderful 🙂 Only problem I had with it was that I didn’t drain my spinach enough and it was a bit watery. But still didn’t stop me from eating almost half of it up in one sitting – lol I’m not so sure about the “serves 3” part!

    • So glad you enjoyed it! I think I’ll put a note on the post about making sure to drain the spinach, thanks so much for letting me know about your experience :). Enjoy your Sunday!
