Table of Contents


  • Fresh spinach leaves (a handful or as desired)
  • 2-3 eggs (depending on your preference)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or your choice of similar variety)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil or butter for cooking


  1. Prep the Spinach:
    • Rinse the spinach leaves thoroughly to remove any dirt or grit. Drain and set aside.
  2. Cook the Onion:
    • In a skillet, heat a small amount of olive oil or melt some butter over medium heat.
    • Add the chopped onions to the skillet. Sauté until the onions are translucent and slightly golden, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add the Spinach:
    • Add the fresh spinach leaves to the skillet with the onions. Cook until the spinach is wilted, which should take about 2-3 minutes. Stir frequently to combine the flavors.
  4. Cook the Eggs:
    • Create small wells in the spinach and onion mixture and crack an egg into each well. Season with salt and pepper.
    • Cover the skillet with a lid and let the eggs cook to your desired doneness. For fully set whites and runny yolks, cook for about 3-5 minutes.
  5. Add Cheese:
    • Once the eggs are nearly cooked, sprinkle the shredded cheese over the spinach and eggs. Cover the skillet again for about a minute to allow the cheese to melt.
  6. Serving:
    • Once the cheese is melted and bubbly, remove the skillet from heat. Serve hot directly from the skillet for a hearty breakfast or a nutritious meal any time of the day.

Nutritional Benefits:

  • Spinach is rich in iron and potassium, which are excellent for blood health and pressure regulation.
  • Eggs provide high-quality protein and fats, which can help manage hunger and stabilize blood sugar levels.
  • Cheese adds calcium and additional protein, enhancing the dish’s flavor and nutritional value.
