This Low-carb "Spinach and Eggs recipe" or "Beeah ooh Spanakh" is one of my favorite low-carb breakfast dishes. It's very simple to prepare, yet amazingly delicious! This recipe goes great with my Basturma recipe!
Why This Recipe Works
This Spinach and Eggs recipe wasn't something I grew up eating. You could say I wasn't a fan of spinach back then.
It wasn't until I started a low carb diet, and needed some variety in my breakfast recipes that I remembered this dish. This dish reminds me of Spanakopita, but without the Fillo dough.
The good news is, you don't have to be on a low-carb diet to enjoy this recipe. There are a variety of ways to prepare this dish. including stuffing the eggs in puff pastry, especially if you are not on a low-carb diet. Whichever way you decide to serve it, I guarantee it will be a hit!
How to Make This Recipe
Melt butter in a non-stick pan. Sauté garlic for a few seconds. Add spinach and continue to sauté until the spinach is wilted.
Scramble eggs and add to the pan all at once. Stir eggs, spinach, and garlic to combine.
Mix in the feta cheese, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Spinach and Eggs in Puff Pastry
If you are one of those lucky people who don't have to watch their carbs, I hate you. Just kidding, but seriously I am a bit envious. You, my friend, can get a little extravagant when preparing this dish.
Why not serve this spinach and eggs recipe nestled in puff pastry shells? Don't worry, it's not a complicated process; and definitely easier than preparing spanikopita.
Just bake the puff pastry according to the package directions, then stuff with the cooked spinach and egg mixture.
Your guests will think you spent hours preparing it. You and I will know otherwise, and your secret is safe with me!
What to Serve with Spinach and Eggs
When it comes to what you should serve with this delicious dish, bacon seems like an easy choice. Breakfast sausage would also be a great choice.
