Spinach and Feta Greek Egg Bake.

I am a huge fan of make-ahead, high protein, low carb breakfast recipes. Meal planning and prepping makes my week go so much more smoothly than when I don’t get it done. This Spinach and Feta Greek Egg Bake is inspired by some of my favorite Mediterranean flavors, and it helps me get a delicious and nutritious start to my day. Not to mention, my kids love it as well!

Ingredients

  • Olive oil: A heart healthy oil that’s my go-to for sautéing.
  • Baby spinach: With the leaves smaller than spinach, the leaves are more tender and are usually a bit sweeter as well.
  • Eggs: An affordable and easily accessible form of protein, I love using eggs in my breakfasts.
  • Oregano: Pungent, earthy flavor that is very common in Greek and other Mediterranean cuisine.
  • Garlic powder: A quick and easy way to get some garlic flavor into your dish.
  • Feta cheese: Tangy and soft, it’s a Greek cheese made from goat’s milk.

How to Make a Spinach and Feta Greek Egg Bake

Seasoning spinach with salt

Heat some olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat, then add your baby spinach and season with some salt and pepper.

Sauteing spinach in pan

Sauté until it is slightly wilted and bright green.

Adding spinach to baking dish

Remove from the stove, and put your spinach in a prepared baking dish.

Cracking eggs into bowl

In a large mixing bow, crack in all your eggs.

Whisking spices into eggs

Whisk in the oregano, garlic powder, and some salt and pepper.

Pouring eggs into dish

Once your eggs are all beaten, pour the mixture into the baking dish over the spinach.

Sprinkling feta into egg

Sprinkle your crumbled feta cheese over the egg and spinach mixture, then use a fork to gently stir it all together.

Egg bake out of the oven

Toss it in the oven at 375 for about 30 minutes until the eggs are baked through.

Switch Things UP

  • Make it more Greek. Add in some sun-dried tomatoes and Kalamata olives to up the Greek flavors.
  • Swap the greens. If you don’t have spinach, use kale or any other leafy green you do have on hand.
