Sunday Brunch: Baked Eggs with Spinach

Somehow I had never made or even eaten baked eggs until about a month ago. They're a new hit around here, even though I'm pretty sure I'm overcooking them. Sometimes the yolk seems almost like a hard-boiled egg's; we're still in the experimental stage. Fortunately, I enjoy eggs at every degree of doneness. If there's an English muffin on the side, how can I be picky?

This is a comforting, low-stress brunch, especially if you use leftover cooked greens or frozen ones. (I actually prefer chard, but spinach is quite nice, too.) With buttered toast and a little bacon, you're all set. Doubled, this would be an easy way to feed a crowd of visiting relatives. For a fancy schmancy touch, bake the eggs in ramekins.
