- 1 tablespoon butter, divided
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 4 ounces fresh Baby Spinach
- 4 large eggs
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dill weed
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper, to taste
- 1 ounce neufchatel cheese, in pieces or 1 ounce cream cheese
- 1 ounce feta cheese, crumbled
- 1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped or 1 tablespoon scallion top, for garnish
- In a medium skillet over moderate heat, melt the butter. Add the green onions, spinach, and dill stirring occasionally, until spinach has wilted.
- In a bowl whisk together the eggs, cream cheese , feta, dill, and pepper. Pour mixture over the spinach.
- If scrambling the eggs, just stir until you reach desired texture of eggs and serve. Transfer to a serving plate and sprinkle with the chives or scallions.
- OPTIONAL OMELETTE: (Make 2) Stir the eggs gently pushing the outer edges inward till the eggs begin to solidify. Leave it be for a minute or two but continue to shake pan a little to keep it loose from the pan.
- When eggs are 2/3 of the way done, carefully 'flip' the pan with a quick jerk. If you don't know how to do that, you can slide the omelette onto a baking sheet and broil the top for a minute to continue cooking.
So good and SO easy!<br/> Left out the feta because of personal preference, but still had wonderful flavor. Nice change from plain ol' scrambled eggs. Thanks, 2Bleu!
Can't even tell you how long ago I saved this recipe and then forgot to try it. So glad I found it again as it's a wonderful and differant way to serve eggs. I used the scrambled just for ease and made just as directed and it was so good just differant enough from our usual to make for a very pleasant change. Next time I'm thinking of adding fresh sliced mushrooms.
Very tasty! I didn't have any dill, but I added a bit of salt, fresh garlic, and a some red bell pepper for color. The cream cheese held the dish together nicely and I loved the feta!
