Breakfast skillet with Spinach, mushrooms and eggs.

If you are a follower of this blog, my  Facebook or Instagram page you will notice that I love to have eggs, spinach, and mushrooms for breakfast. I have several recipes that feature all these three ingredients together, I think they all taste great together. The texture and flavors of each of these awesome and nutritious ingredients all combine to produce a delicious breakfast dish and it’s easy and pretty too.

Now, depending on how big your skillet is and the number of people you want to serve this to – you can make up to 5 eggs/5 servings at one time. Since we are only a family of 3, more often than not, we use 4 eggs for 4 servings.

While Spinach is my favorite greens to use – feel free to use Kale or Swiss Chard or watercress if you like.

 

Ingredients:

4 -6 baby bella mushrooms, sliced 1/3” thick
3-4 Tbsp unsalted pasture raised butter, divided
2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
2-4 handfuls of  baby spinach
3 cloves garlic, minced finely
2-4 eggs

Goat cheese or feta
Salt and fresh black pepper to taste

 

Directions:

1. Over medium heat, melt 2 Tbsp butter and 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet.
2. Sauté the mushrooms. Make sure not to crowd the pan so the mushrooms crisp up evenly.
3. Sauté for 4 minutes, flipping the mushrooms halfway through and seasoning with salt and fresh black pepper, to taste. Remove from the pan and set aside.
4. Add more butter and olive oil as needed for the spinach and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and saute until the spinach is wilted. about 1 minute.
6. Add the mushrooms back into the pan and create pockets for the eggs. Crack an egg into each pocket and cover immediately with the lid.
7. Let the eggs cook for 2 1/2 – 3 minutes. Do not lift that lid! This ensures the egg whites cook from the top as well as the bottom. Remove from heat, and season with salt and pepper.
8. Crumble goat cheese or feta over top and serve with toasted bread.

    Hello,
    Pleasure to meet you and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog page and having a follow, I appreciate the support and look forward to reading and drooling over all your recipes. This particular one, I have always wanted to make at home vs having it at a restaurant. The cast iron skillets are nifty to have, I will have to look into getting one myself.
