  recipe for "Pottery Pan with Meatballs Cooked in Egg with Spinach":


- 1 pound ground beef or lamb

- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

- 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- 1 teaspoon dried oregano

- 1 teaspoon salt

- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- 1 onion, finely chopped

- 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped

- 4 large eggs

- 1 cup tomato sauce

- Fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)


1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef or lamb, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.

3. Shape the meat mixture into small meatballs, about 1 inch in diameter.

4. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the finely chopped onion and sauté until it becomes translucent and lightly browned.

5. Add the chopped spinach to the skillet and cook for a few minutes until it wilts.

6. Push the spinach and onion mixture to one side of the skillet and add the meatballs to the other side. Cook the meatballs until they are browned on all sides.

7. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until well mixed.

8. Pour the beaten eggs over the meatballs, spinach, and onions in the skillet. Tilt the skillet to distribute the eggs evenly.

9. Transfer the mixture from the skillet to a pottery pan or baking dish.

10. Pour the tomato sauce over the meatballs and eggs in the pottery pan, ensuring they are well coated.

11. Cover the pottery pan with aluminum foil and place it in the preheated oven. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the meatballs are cooked through.

12. Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 5 minutes to lightly brown the top.

13. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.

14. Garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired, and serve the pottery pan with meatballs cooked in egg with spinach while still warm. It goes well with crusty bread or a side of rice.
