Baked Eggs with Mushrooms & Spinach

Baked Eggs Baked Eggs Makes 4 servings
Since there is one of me, but four of these eggs, I make all of the spinach mushroom mixture at once, then let half of it cool and chill until the next (makes an extra-quick option on day two). Also--who am I kidding--I usually eat two of the baked eggs, so this really makes 4 baked egg cups but 2 servings.

2 tbsp olive oil, divided
5 ounces baby spinach leaves, roughly chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup thinly sliced crimini or button mushrooms
1/3 cup whole milk
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
4 large eggs
1-2 tbsp finely grated Parmesan
