Spinach and Eggs

I've been off all week with my daughter and we've been doing different stuff for breakfasts.  Our best thing to date was the chunky peanut butter and banana sandwiches on English muffins which she's never had before and now absolutely loves,

So this morning I wanted something different, good and somewhat healthy.  Looked in the freezer and there's a pack of frozen spinach staring at me.  So here's what you'll need and what I came up with.

Spinach and Eggs
  • 5 - eggs whipped
  • 1 - 10oz Pack of frozen chopped spinach
  • 2-3 slices of ham 
  • 3- Slices of Swiss cheese
  • couple thin slices of red onion
  • 3-4 - TBS Butter 
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic smashed
  • Parmesean cheese
  • Salt and pepper
I used what we had in the house, but mushrooms would have been a nice addition.

Place frozen spinach in a non stick pan until thawed and the excess water has evaporated.  Then add in 2 TBS butter and the onions and garlic until softened.  Then reduce heat to low add in the remaining butter and whipped eggs, ham and cheese and fold until the eggs are done and the cheese is melted. Salt and pepper to taste.  Top with a little Parmesan cheese. 

I wasn't sure if my daughter would really like it since the spinach was the dominant part of the meal, but she had seconds!


My biggest fan!
