  • Prep Time
  • 8Servings


  • 1 stick butter
  • Sea salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 4 country-style pork sausage links (about 10 oz. total), casings removed
  • 8 oz. bacon, cut crosswise into 1/3-inch strips
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 4 oz. fresh spinach
  • 8 eggs
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Flat-leaf parsley leaves, for serving


1. Preheat the oven to 425°. Grease eight 6- to 8-oz. ramekins with the butter. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium. Add the sausage and bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally, breaking up the sausage with a spoon, until well browned, about 5 minutes. Add the onions; cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the spinach; season. Cook, stirring, until the spinach wilts, about 1 minute. Divide the spinach mixture among the ramekins.

3. Crack an egg into each ramekin; season. Place 2 tomato halves, cut side up, next to each egg.

4. Bake until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny, 8 to 12 minutes. Sprinkle with the parsley.
