Skillet Egg Bake with Leeks, Swiss Chard and Feta Recipe
Skillet Egg Bake with Leeks, Swiss Chard, and Feta is simple, nourishing, and delicious!
- olive oil: 1 tablespoon
- leek: 1
- chopped swiss chard (spinach or kale would also work here): 3 cups
- garlic clove: 1
- small tomatoes: 2
- dried oregano: ½ teaspoon
- crushed red chilli flakes (optional): pinch
- crumbled feta: ¼ cup
- salt and pepper: to taste
- eggs: 4
- finely chopped parsley: 2 tablespoons
- finely grated parmesan: 2 tablespoons
Step 1: Preheat oven to80 degrees.
Step 2: Rinse and chop all of your veggies: Cut the leek in half lengthwise, and then slice into ½ inch pieces. Roughly chop swiss chard leaves and the tomatoes, and finely chop garlic clove.
Step 3: In an 8 inch, oven safe, skillet heat the olive oil over a medium flame. Sauté leeks until soft and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
Step 4: Add swiss chard, and garlic. Keep sautéing for another 3-5 minutes or until soft. Using a spatula evenly spread leek-swiss chard mixture to create a bed.
Step 5: Add the chopped tomatoes, oregano, chilli flakes, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the crumbled feta over the tomatoes.
Step 6: Gently crack the eggs over the skillet, trying to keep yolks in tact.
Step 7: Turn the flame off, and transfer the skillet into the oven and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the whites are set.
Step 8: Before serving sprinkle the fresh parsley and grated parmesan over the skillet. Serve with your favourite whole grain bread.
