A delightful Iraqi dish of eggs baked in spinach; I added a few diced bell peppers for color. I have made it with both frozen chopped spinach and whole-leaf fresh and the fresh spinach is way superior in taste and appearance.
1 bunch spinach, or a bag of washed spinach or baby spinach
4 large eggs
salt, pepper, dash of nutmeg
4 Tbsp oil or clarified butter
1 cup of diced red, yellow and orange bell pepper
1 cup ground meat or sausage
1 onion, chopped
1. Heat the oil or butter and fry the onion, diced peppers till softened; add the meat and brown, sprinkle with the spices. Add the spinach to the skillet and cover for a couple of minutes until the spinach wilts a bit.
2. Make a crater in different spots and place an egg in each crater; bake in a preheated 350F oven for 8 minutes or until the eggs are set. Serve with bread immediately.
