Ready In: 45 Min

Servings: 6

Ingredients:

  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups spinach (finely chopped; if frozen spinach is used, thaw and squeeze out excess liquid)
  • 4 scallions (root ends discarded, green and white parts chopped into 1/4 inch-pieces)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Put the eggs, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl and stir with a fork until well combined.
  3. Add spinach, scallions and feta cheese and mix well.
  4. Put an 8-inch ovenproof skillet on the stove over medium heat and, when hot, add oil.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and carefully transfer to the oven. Bake until the eggs are set and the top is golden, about 30 minutes. 
  6. Serve right away or cover and refrigerate overnight.

Chef's Note: You may substitute cheddar, swiss or ricotta cheese for feta.
