Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Place spinach in oven-proof, 12 oz (360 ml) ramekins, or mugs (two per serving), and drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Crack eggs into the ramekins. Top with the chorizo, feta cheese, and tomatoes.
  4. Place the ramekins on the middle oven rack, and bake uncovered for 10 to 12 minutes, until the egg whites are set, and the yolks are still runny. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Tips

If using "Spanish" chorizo (hard and cured), dice, or cut it into small cubes. If using fully cooked chorizo sausage links, simply crumble the sausage after removing it from the casing.

No time to cook? Use a microwave and cook on high for 1 to 2 minutes until the whites are set, and the yolks are runny. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

    If you are cooking eggs in the microwave you should prick them with a toothpick or similar, otherwise they will explode

    Step #2 says 12 Oz (60ml), it should be (360ml)

    I absolutely loved this recipe. I had it for my evening meal (for one), but it was so filling, I saved half for breakfast.
    I used prosciutto slices, instead of chorizo. I cooked mine until the yolk was firm, 15 minutes.

    Sounds great! Glad you enjoyed it!

    Can I replace the chorizo with chicken thighs in a way that it's still keto?

    You can certainly try swapping the protein!
