About This Recipe

This Spinach and Eggs recipe wasn’t something I grew up eating. You could say I wasn’t a fan of spinach back then. That was the extent of my pickiness when I was a kid. This was one of those recipes that mom only prepared for my dad, and my brother, Joe. It wasn’t until I started a low carb diet, and needed some variety in my breakfast recipes, that I remembered this dish. It’s reminiscent of the Greek recipe, spanakopita, but without the fillo/phyllo dough. I supposed this recipe could be called “low carb spanikopita.” Luckily, with so much going for this recipe, you’ll never miss the fillo dough!

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 eggs mixture. Your guests will think you spent hours preparing it.
