Eggs Florentine

This Italian dish makes greens into a breakfast or brunch dish. This also makes a great light supper.


Per serving

  • 1 bunch CSA greens (depending on bunch size, one might serve two people)
  • 2 eggs
  • Olive oil or butter
  • Garlic to taste
  • 1-2 Tablespoons parmesan cheese


Heat an oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the greens. If young and tender (braising greens, beet greens, chard, shingizu, etc) just wash and cut into one inch pieces, possibly eliminating stems If older and spicier, wash, cut out stems, cut into wide ribbons and parboil.

Heat olive oil in a sauté pan and brown the garlic. Add the greens, toss to coat with oil, and steam with the lid on.

Butter or oil a small oven-safe dish. Place the sautéed greens in the dish. Crack eggs and place atop the greens. Bake for 10 minutes or until the eggs are done to your liking. Top with parmesan cheese.
