Cheesy Green Eggs

SAVE ✓ SAVED ADD TO MEAL PLAN PRINT

Baby spinach is a great green to add to lots of savory foods because it wilts so easily. You can often get it to blend into the background, so it won't overpower a dish. In this case the, spinach highlights playfully with its bright green color. At my house I’ll occasionally serve this with bacon and we call them “Green Eggs and Ham!"

Note: Pictured toast for serving is not gluten-free. Omit or use a gluten-free option if needed.

Method

Place milk and spinach in small bowl and cover with a saucer. Microwave on high for about 40 seconds until spinach is wilted. Puree as much as possible in blender or mini food processor, scraping sides down to get as much of the spinach ground into the milk. Heat non-stick skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray.

While pan is heating, beat eggs, egg white and spinach puree together until blended. Mix in the cheese and pour the whole mixture into the heated pan. Scramble until cooked through and add salt and pepper to taste.

Babyfood Option:

Eggs and Dairy are considered in the top 8 high allergen foods. There is more research that shows that introduction to high allergen foods can lead to a lower incidence of food allergies. When introducing any of the top 8 foods, once you have introduced a small tester dose of these foods successfully then keep exposing your baby to that food regularly. This is a great nutritious way to keep eggs and dairy in the diet of a baby who is tolerating these ingredients. Chop the spinach really fine and cook the eggs through. Fork mash to a very smooth consistency. As babies progress through feeding development, you can keep more texture and even finger food-size bites.
