My Favorite Egg Recipe, For Now

My Favorite Egg Recipe, For Now

This egg recipe is my favorite, for now. I say for now because I love to try new recipes and, who knows, when there will be a new one that will superate this one.

I had first seen this beautiful egg recipe in Martha Stewart’s magazine, a couple of years ago. I took the magazine to the kitchen to prepare it when I noticed it was only a photo, with no recipe. Now I understand that a recipe isn’t quite needed, but then I just left it to be done later as I wasn’t in the mood to invent the recipe.

Then I saw this egg recipe again a couple of days ago, on a Food52’s video (see below).

And so I had no more excuses. It is extremely easy to prepare and so tasty. You can vary the vegetables and use what you have at home. I added chives, fresh spinach and onions.

Other than being really beautiful, it is a versatile recipe you can use in many occasions. The video below show the American use, as breakfast. I served it at lunch, at room temperature. It is perfect also for a buffet or for a dinner you prepare in advance.

I used a baking sheet of 10 x 14″ and 8 eggs. If you use a bigger baking pan, just add some more eggs.
