Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Spinach a.k.a. Power Eggs

Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Spinach a.k.a. Power Eggs recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

My boys named this breakfast, Power Eggs, after watching Popeye eat his spinach and then grow stronger. They request their eggs this way almost every time I ask how they would like them cooked. I found this recipe at Kitchen Stewardship over two years ago and we’ve been making this for breakfast at least once a week ever since.

(printable recipe)

8 eggs
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup frozen cut leaf spinach
Salt and pepper
1/4-1/2 cup monterey jack or cheddar cheese, shredded

Scoop the cottage cheese into the middle of a non-stick skillet. Toss the frozen spinach on top of it and cover with a lid. Cook on medium heat until the cottage cheese starts to melt and the spinach is thawed, approximately 6-8 minutes. Stir occasionally.  Once the cottage cheese is melted and the spinach is soft, add the eggs and stir to break them and combine with the other ingredients.

Cook on medium-low heat, stirring every so often, until the eggs are done. Add salt and pepper as this is finishing on the stove. Remove from the heat, sprinkle with cheese and place the lid back on top for a few moments to allow the cheese to melt before serving. Enjoy!

  1. haha that's so cute, power eggs. I love popeye as a kid too. i wanted to be strong but that green gunk in a can looked very unappetising to me haha. anyway i finally found that spinach puree tastes good, in the form of curry! (: now if i ever have children i'll pretty much just show them popeye vids and then make them spinach soup/curry-greatest way to make children eat veg dont you think? ;)
