Spinach Scramble

Everyone is supposed to eat half a plate of green vegetables at each meal, with a quarter plate of protein, and a quarter plate carbs. That's hard to do at breakfast. There are not many vegetables that people eat for breakfast, but I found this works well.

Spinach Scramble

3 strips of Bacon (Actually I just cut a few pieces off the end of the block. It saves me having to cut up the slices.)
1 med Onion, chopped
2 cloves Garlic, crushed
6oz frozen Spinach (half a 12 oz bag of frozen)
1 tsp Huy Fong (rooster) Chili Garlic sauce
3 Eggs
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese (optional)

Fry the bacon until it is crispy. Set the bacon aside and saute the onions in the bacon fat until soft.
Add the frozen spinach, garlic, and chili garlic sauce and heat through. You may need to add some water to get the spinach to thaw.
Add back the bacon and three eggs. Cook while stirring, until the eggs are no longer runny.
Mix in the cheese (if using) and serve.

Makes a lot of food. Might feed two. I have heated up the leftovers in a burrito.


Sounds tasty!
I've been enjoying it.
It's very filling, and it meets the requirements of my doctor supervised diet.
Your spinach dishes always turn out so good. It's a shame my kiddos won't eat them. Cuteness is adamant about "green" not touching her protein. Or "brown". Or "black"
Those "Sneaky Chef" books I bought had ideas for sneaking vegetables into food. I think they have a recipe for spinach brownies.
I remember and a lot of it was "cream these vegetables and use them in sauces or as liquid substitutes", which was a lot of Work as my blender didn't blend well before the pitcher part cracked.

They will eat broccoli and carrots. We have all agreed bell peppers are Yucky, we shall see how the beets go over.
Yes. It was a lot of pureeing. You should buy a good simple blender. She did suggest that you make the purees in batches and keep them in the freezer. And then there is the "Cook for a day eat for Month" system. Where you spend one day making seven entree dishes that you freeze in meal sized portions and then you just heat them up for the rest of the month.

I know your kids don't do sauces. But there are ideas like the spinach brownies and adding the cauliflower puree to mac and cheese. Which I did for your kids once and they didn't notice. Does the Cuteness eat IDK's Taco casserole? because if she eats casseroles that is another way to hide pureed vegetables.

IDK's taco casserole has become nothing more then ground beef and cheese over tortilla chips. it might as well be nachos.

Casseroles really haven't gone over well in the last year or so. I've pretty much stopped making them. Hmmm.
