Veggie Baked Eggs
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup crimini mushrooms, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
1 tablespoon dry white wine
1/2 cup leeks, chopped (light green and white parts only)
1 cup curly red kale, chopped
5-6 large eggs
2-3 tablespoons milk
1/3 cup feta cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 1-1/2 quart baking dish with butter and set aside.
Crack the eggs into a small mixing bowl. Add the milk and season with salt and pepper. Whisk to combine. Add the feta and stir to combine. Set aside.
In a large pan melt the butter. Add the mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes until tender occasionally stirring. Add the thyme and stir to combine and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Add the wine and cook until all the liquid has been absorbed. Add the leeks and cook for about 3 minutes, until tender. Add the kale and cook stirring continuously for about 2-3 minutes until the kale has wilted a bit. Season with salt and pepper.
Pour the vegetable mixture into the prepared baking dish. Pour the egg mixture on top and give it a good stir to combine all the ingredients. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes. Makes 4-6 servings.
