I have got one of the EASIEST breakfast/brunch recipes for you today! It only requires a few ingredients, and about 10 minutes of actual work in the kitchen.
Baked eggs are one of my favorite things to make because it is so quick, easy to clean up, and you can be really creative with it. Today I kept it simple with collard greens seasoned with lots of garlic (!!!) and cooked in ghee, which gives them the BEST flavor. The beauty of baked eggs is that you can add whatever your little heart desires! Tomatoes? Yum. Bell Peppers? Absolutely. Onions? Delish.
You can so easily make it your own.
Then just crack those eggs in and throw it all in the oven. Done! Brunch is served, and you come out looking like Rachael Ray.
Or at least that’s what I imagine for myself.
Baked Eggs with Garlicky Collard Greens
- 4 large eggs
- 1 whole bunch of collard greens stemmed and chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic finely chopped
- 1-2 tbsp ghee (or olive oil)
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1-2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds for garnish
- 2 tbsp liquid aminos (or GF soy sauce)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then preheat a large skillet over medium heat, and add the ghee to melt. Once melted, add the chopped garlic and stir frequently for about 1 minute. Watch it closely because garlic can burn quickly.
Next, add the chopped collard greens and toss them with the garlic. Saute the greens for 2-3 minutes, until they have slightly wilted, but are not completely cooked. Season with pepper, and toss again.
Use a wooden spoon or utensil to move the collards around in order to make 4 little nests for the eggs. Crack an egg into each of the 4 holes. Season each one with pepper, and then transfer the whole skillet to the oven.
Bake for 5-6 minutes for a slightly runny yolk, or 7-8 minutes for a harder yolk. Once the eggs are cooked to your liking, remove from the oven, drizzle the liquid aminos over the top, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Serve and enjoy!
