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