Skillet Creamed Spinach with Eggs and Bacon

Skillet Creamed Spinach with Eggs & Bacon.

I’m so intrigued by baked eggs.  Mostly because I love eggs, but also because I like the idea of nestling them into a well of savory goodness where they take on the flavors that surround them.  Getting to use my awesome mini cast iron skillets is a bonus.  This is a perfect brunch recipe.

And if I were in need of an enticing dish to lure one sleepy girl out of bed….this might be the one.
