Caprese Baked Egg


“What nicer thing can you do for somebody than make them breakfast?” ~ Anthony Bourdain

This breakfast favorite and featured item at our most recent Cooking Demos is Italian-inspired, vitamin-packed and incredibly easy to make:


1/4 teaspoons coconut oil
1 thick slice fresh organic tomato
1/4 teaspoon oregano spice
3-4 fresh baby spinach leaves
1 large organic, free range egg


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Grease an oven-compatible egg ramekin with the coconut oil.
Place the slice of tomato at the bottom of the dish and sprinkle with oregano.

Caprere Baked Egg Stage 3
Top the tomato with spinach.
Crack the egg on top of the spinach.

Caprese Baked Egg Stage 5
Place in the oven for 11-13 minutes for a soft yolk, or 13-15 minutes for a hard yolk.
Remove from the oven and then, using a knife, lift the egg dish out of the ramekin (being careful not to burn your hands).
Serve hot alongside some nitrate-free baked bacon!

Now that’s a good start to the day…and may it only keep getting better…
