Ingredients

Scale

FOR YOGHURT AOLI

  • 1/2 cup yogurt (I used Mountain High Original Style Yoghurt)
  • 1 tsp garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice (fresh)
  • pinch salt

FOR BAKE

  • 2 tsp butter (divided)
  • 2 tsp olive oil (divided)
  • 23 strips bacon (cooked and chopped)
  • 1 shallot (sliced)
  • 23 cloves garlic (sliced)
  • 8 oz bag fresh spinach
  • 1 tsp lemon juice (fresh)
  • 2 eggs (large)
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes (halved)
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • pinch cayenne
  • pinch salt

Instructions

  1. Mix yogurt, garlic, lemon juice and salt in small bowl. Store in refrigerator for later.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  3. Melt 1 tsp butter with 1 tsp oil in an oven friendly skillet* on medium heat.
  4. Add garlic and shallot and reduce heat to medium low. Cook until slightly browned and soft, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add spinach, bacon and lemon juice plus salt/pepper to taste. Increase to medium-high heat and turn contents frequently until spinach is wilted, about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and make 1 or 2 indentations in spinach. Crack eggs into these holes and add tomato halves.
  7. Bake uncovered until egg whites turn white, about 10-15 minutes. (10 minutes for runny and 15 minutes for hard yolks)
  8. About 3 minutes before the bake is finished, melt 1 tsp butter with 1 tsp oil in small saucepan over medium low heat. Stir in crushed red pepper flakes, cayenne and salt. Saute for 1-2 minutes until butter bubbles. (Don’t overcook, you will burn the butter!)
  9. Spoon yogurt aoli over spinach and drizzle with spicy butter mixture.
  10. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

*TIP: I’m a big fan of saving time and water by using the new MidasPlus convertible cookware by NeoFlam. Cook, bake, serve and store all in the same piece!
