College Roomy shared this recipe with me 18 months ago and this is the only thing I ate for breakfast 5 months in a row. IT IS THAT GOOD! Even better: my three year old LOVEs it (just don't tell her she's eating spinach in every bite)!
Try it for yourself and feel free to modify and let us know your results; sometimes I add mushrooms or whatever vegetable is on the counter!
- 9-10 Eggs
8 oz cottage cheese (not skim)
¼ cup brown rice flour (substitute as needed with whatever flour you have on hand)
5-7 oz fresh spinach leaves- rinsed and dried
9x13 baking dish sprayed with oil or greased with butter
1 sweet onion (diced)
2-4 cloves garlic (diced)
OPTIONAL 7-10 strips of crisp turkey bacon (chopped up)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. While it’s heating up I place my strips of bacon on a cookie sheet and let them cook in the oven until they reach my desired crispness.
- While the bacon is cooking, sauté the onion and garlic in the butter, then pour them into a mixing bowl. Then add the cottage cheese to bring down the temperature of the onions. Next add your eggs and flour. Mix thoroughly.
- Lay the spinach in your greased 9 x 13 pan then pour the egg mixture on top. Sprinkle the chopped turkey bacon on top of the eggs and place in the oven.
- Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
