Baked Greek Shakshuka

Shakshuka, or Eggs In Purgatory, is an egg dish traditionally cooked in a spicy blend of tomato sauce and other flavors. This Greek version is a twist on that, substituting tomatoes for spinach and baking it in the oven, rather than the stove top.

1 cup croutons, your favorite flavor (optional)

3Add the feta cheese to the spinach and mix well. Transfer to a baking dish.

4Carefully crack each egg side by side over the spinach mixture and lightly season with salt and pepper. Top with more feta and optional croutons.
