Spinach and egg breakfast pan


– 1¼ cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
– 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
– 2 large bunches Swiss chard
– 2 cups onion, chopped

1. In a small bowl, toss cherry tomatoes with vinegar. Set aside.
2. Remove chard leaves from stems. Chop leaves, place in a large bowl of cool water and swirl to rinse. Transfer to a colander, allowing a bit of water to remain on leaves. Rinse, dry and slice stems thinly.
3. In a large frying pan over medium heat, sauté chard stems and onion in olive oil until softened (about 10 minutes). Reduce heat to low. Add garlic and sauté for one minute. Add chard leaves, salt and pepper. Turnheat to high and toss until leaves wilt.
4. Using the back of a spoon, make four indents (“nests”) in the chard. Crack one egg into each nest. Cover the pan, reduce heat slightly and cook until yolks are medium-set (about four minutes).
5. Add cherry tomatoes and vinegar to pan, then serve.
