This is a really easy recipe and loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, fiber, and protein. I love it for lunch, and it would even make a complete dinner. You can serve one, two, or three people depending on the number of eggs you use. One person may find this to be too much spinach, so use your judgment. If you use fresh spinach rather than frozen, it's a more manageable amount of spinach, since it shrinks down so much.

You'll need a skillet with a lid for this recipe. A non-stick skillet is best.

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces chopped frozen​ spinach
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Preparation

  1. Thaw the spinach. You can do it with a little water in the pan if you want (cover the skillet) or in the microwave or just on the counter. Spread the thawed frozen or fresh spinach over the bottom of a pan.
  2. When the spinach is hot, crack the eggs on top. Put the lid on the pan. In a few minutes, the eggs will be steam-cooked.
  3. When they are almost how you like them, sprinkle the cheese on top of the eggs and put the lid back on until the cheese is melted.
