Fellini Eggs (aka Garlic Bread Eggs)

Source:  Serious Eats

Finding this recipe made me so happy!  Just when I thought I had exhausted all brunch recipes with eggs, I found this.  I felt a little guilty making this because we haven't been eating too healthy lately.  But it's cold and rainy in LA.. we needed some comfort food!

  • 2-3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups spinach leaves
  • 1/2 onion, sliced thin
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-2 teaspoons grated parmesan
  • 1 small baguette/ sandwich roll (cut in half)
  • 4-5 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream or milk
  • 1-2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • Cayenne Pepper/ Red Chili Powder to taste
  1. Stir together butter, garlic, and parmesan cheese
  2. Spread the butter mixture on the baguette slices and broil until crispy
  3. Let the baguette cool and then cube into chunks
  4. Sautee onions, spainch, and tomatoes with salt, pepper, and catenne/ red chili powder
  5. Whisk together eggs and heavy cream. Pour on top of onions and spinach and scramble together
  6. Spray/ lightly butter a baking pan and toss together eggs mixture with cubes garlic bread pieces
  7. Place dollops of ricotta cheese over the top and broil until cheese melts
  8. Sprinkle more crushed pepper/ crushed red pepper before serving
Kuty's Twist

I added onions, spinach, and red chili powder to "vegify" and spice it up.

You could probably make the same dish with cubed potatoes instead of bread.  I think the garlic bread makes this dish very unique!
