Steps
time instruction
5 min Gently fry chopped onions over medium heat until golden-brown, then turn off the heat and set aside but leave in the pan.
3 min With the heat still turned off, stir in the ruccola and spinach with the browned onions, allowing leaves to wilt.
Grease an oven-safe ramekin with oil or butter, then transfer greens from pan to the ramekin.
Add a thin layer of the grated cheese and chives on top of greens.
Crack both eggs into the ramekin, careful not to break the yolk.
Sprinkle the rest of the chives and cheese on top of the cracked eggs, then season with salt and pepper.
12-15 min Bake at 175'C until the whites of the eggs have set, then remove from the oven.
20-25 min total Allow to cool for a few minutes, then serve with a side salad or slice of baguette if you're not afraid of carbs. Bon appetite!
