Protein packed breakfast of champions

I like to start my day off with a bit of protein. This breakfast is sure to get your boost of protein and iron thanks to the eggs and spinach. It’s like a baked omelette so feel free to add whatever ingredients you prefer! I was in a hurry to get to work when I made this, but I would prefer to sautee onions in olive oil before baking and add that to the mixture. But this recipe is simple and delicious and goes perfectly well with a nice piece of toast!

  • 1 lb spinach
  • 6 cups boiling water
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 ounces non fat cream cheese, softened in the microwave
  • 1 cup crumbled feta
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 2 quart baking dish.

Bring the water to a boil. Place spinach in a colander in sink. Pour boiling water of the spinach.

Beat eggs and milk with a whisk in a large bowl until well blended.

Place the cream cheese in the microwave and heat about 30 seconds to soften it, careful not to burn it. Add it to the bowl and mix well. Stir in the feta, chopped tomato and spinach.

Pour the mixture into the baking dish and back for 50 minutes. Let sit then serve.
