Nest Egg

One of the things I resolved to do this year is eat more vegetables.  I love most veggies so that isn’t the problem.  I am just not eating enough of them.  I know I could do better. So I have been looking for any new place I might add some vegetables to a meal. Adding veggies to breakfast is the most challenging, at least for me. For breakfast this morning I decided to have an egg and some toast. When I went to get out the egg and butter I saw a bag of fresh spinach. Why not?

I heated up a little butter in the pan and then added the spinach- probably a good 3 or 4 cups of fresh leaves. They cook down a lot. I also sprinkled the leaves with a little salt and pepper. I stirred them around until they had wilted then made a sort of nest out of them by pushing them away from the center. I poured my egg in the middle so it looked a little like a nest. I put the lid on the skillet and in a few minutes my egg was cooked and the yolk still runny. A little salt and pepper to finish off and the dish was complete. I slid it gently out of the pan onto a serving plate. I really liked it. Plan on making this again soon.
