Eggs and Spinach Breakfast Skillet

There are not many versions of Eggs that I enjoy. Eggs for me need to be really seasoned and creative to enjoy eating them. I saw a recipe in a Bon Appetit magazine similar to this and I had to try it! It came out so amazing, it will definitely be a part of my weekly menu.

My husband is home for a couple weeks and he had this with me and asked me to make it again, that they tasted like “Restaurant” Eggs. I thought that was cute. He is definitely my guinea pig when he is home!

I hope this “spices” up your Breakfast menu. For the kiddos, just leave out the crushed red pepper or add it to your dish separately. This is a great way to sneak some Spinach in for the little ones!

A Cast Iron Skillet definitely makes a difference with how it cooks the eggs for the purpose of this recipe. Don’t sweat it if you don’t have one, just use what you have.
