Scrambled Eggs with Cheese and Spinach

This simple to make Scrambled Eggs with Cheese and Spinach recipe is one of my favorite ways to start the day. So simple to prepare, which is great if mornings are a bit hectic in your house. Try eating them on their own or serve them with some other great low carb choices such as bacon, salmon or sausages. These also taste fantastic on a piece of toasted Low Carb Seed Loaf as well. It’s quite filling on it’s own though, or served with bacon on the side.

Try not to cook these at too high a temperature or they can dry out a little. While I like my scrambled eggs on the softer, pillowy side,you may prefer them a little more cooked. Move them around gently in the pan to get a lovely texture that holds together a bit more than if you continually stir the eggs with a spatula. The key to creamy eggs is a low temperature and moving the eggs around minimally

Microwave Instructions

This recipe could also be made in the microwave oven if desired. Simply mix all of the ingredients together and zap in the microwave in 15 second bursts. Stir slightly in between and remove from the microwave when still slightly under cooked, as they will continue to cook out of the microwave.

This recipe is for 1 person. Simply multiply the recipe by the number of serves that you require. This makes a substantial single serve so if serving for 2 or more people and you were serving sides as well, you could easily reduce the number of eggs down, ie use 3 eggs for 2 people, 5 eggs for 3 people etc. I wouldn’t do this if you all had large appetites though. You could also reduce the amount of spinach for a larger quantity as well if you wanted to but I try to get as many vegetables in as I possibly can so will leave that up to you.

I fondly refer to these as these Meg’s Eggs because this is what my daughter loves to make for breakfast. I miss my Megs Eggs…
