I shared this recipe over on our website…. but thought it was mean not to share it here too as it is totally delicious!

As you will remember we had our Bacon Competition for St. Patrick’s Weekend. I’ve already shared the winning recipe, Bacon & Cabbage Soup, with you, and was full of great plans to try the other recipes in the weeks immediately after, but life as always got in the way.

Finally, today, I got a chance to try Ruth McKenna’s recipe.  Ruth’s recipe is absolutely delicious.

Baked egg, with bacon and sprinkle of black pepper

It was particularly lovely to make them today using our own bacon, first baby spinach leaves from the garden and our own eggs.  Only thing we bought was the goat’s cheese.

We greedily ate 2 each!  You must try this.

Ingredients (for 4 eggs):

  • 4 streaky rashers
  • 4 leaves of spinach
  • 35 g goat’s cheese
  • 4 fresh eggs


Preheat oven to 180 deg. C

Eggs, spinach, goat's cheese and rashers


Grease a muffin tray.  Line each depression with a slice of bacon.  Next add your spinach leaf.  Crumble some goat’s cheese (or feta cheese) in next.  Break an egg over the whole lot.


Bake for 15 – 20 minutes depending on your oven and how you like your eggs.
