Spinach and ham ciabatta baked eggs

Looking for the perfect snack? How about our ciabatta baked eggs? Gooey, baked eggs with runny yolks, a wholesome ham and spinach filling, cuddled by a soft yet crunchy ciabatta crust – what’s not to love?! You could have this for brunch, lunch, or a late night snack – whatever the occasion, it’s going to became a favourite.

Preparation time

20 minutes


• 50g baby spinach, washed
• 2 ciabatta rolls
• 2 teaspoons olive oil
• 2 slices of ham
• 2 tablespoons cheddar, finely grated
• 2 Respectful eggs


Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan.

Steam the spinach in a saucepan over a low heat. When just wilted, squeeze out any excess water, and lightly season. Leave to one side.

Cut circles in the top of each roll and scoop out, hollowing out a good amount of bread in each so that everything fits in.

Drizzle a little olive oil into each hole. Evenly add the spinach and ham. Crack the eggs into each hole and scatter over the grated cheese – season.

Place on an oiled baking tray and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the whites are set, and the yolk is still runny. Allow to sit for 2 minutes before enjoying.
