Cauliflower-Gouda Layered Baked Eggs with Tomato and Spinach

Cauliflower-Gouda Layered Baked Eggs with Tomato and Spinach

Brunch might just be one of my favorite things about the weekend. It's the meal for people who aren't up in time for breakfast and who don't want to admit that lunchtime is technically over, too. It's best served on lazy weekend days, and it demands lazy weekend recipes. 

These baked eggs are layered with all manner of delicious, fresh ingredients: cauliflower, tomatoes, spinach and gouda cheese. And the best part is, "everything is cooked using just the ramekins and the oven... no separate sautéing of ingredients in pans, no boiling in pots, etcetera." The Indolent Cook calls this recipe a "tribute to her laziness." I call it weekend perfection.
