This was easy and delicious. I used thawed frozen spinach and added a Tbls of garlic and a little crushed red pepper. My family normally won't touch spinach and they asked second helpings! Read More

It was just alright but very easy. I like spinach but usually use fresh or frozen but I had a can of spinach that I needed to use. I wanted spinach and mushrooms which I have a great recipe for but didn't have any mushrooms so I picked this recipe because I had everything it called for. I followed the recipe but after tasting I had to add garlic powder and salt and pepper and extra bacon bits for more flavor. DH said "eh" when I asked him how he liked it and he usually likes everything I make. Might try it with more egg and more bacon and seasonings. And besides it's not really "fried" since there is no butter or oil. It's more like sauteed in it's own water. Read More

I've been making this for many years. My mother raised us on it I've raise my kids on it. We typically don't add the bacon though. Friends would come and see me making it and look as if I'd lost my mind. But once they tried it....Anyway I'm glad to see some one post this. It's different but worth a try. Read More

A good way for me to get both my eggs and spinach. Made it without bacon and it was a wonderful side dish. Added some hot pepper sauce and worcester sauce. Read More

Great idea! I didn't have the bacon bits on hand but can't wait to try it with them next time. I used frozen spinach added a bit of worchestire and balsamic vinegar and in the egg mixture added some onion powder garlic salt and pepper. I also sauteed some minced garlic for a few seconds prior to adding the spinach. Quick and easy and love the texture! Read More

This reminds me a bit of the San Francisco dish called "Joe's Special". It contains crumbled browned beef sauteed onions and mushrooms spinach (frozen - thawed and squeezed) and eggs. Delicious! Read More

This was great as a basic recipe we added alot of ingredients after reading the reviews and it was amazing! I sauteed onion garlic and mushrooms first and then added the following to the milk/egg mixture: red pepper flakes Worcestershire sauce and cajun seasoning. I also used thawed frozen spinach instead of canned. I know I changed alot but this really is a great starter recipe that can be accommodated to any taste and we (who are not spinach eaters) really enjoyed it. Read More

This recipe was good but I was a little disappointed because it wasn t what I expected. I thought it would a lot more different then it actually was. It tasted exactly like spinach cooked the normal way. The texture was different though; it was more spongy then normal spinach. Don t get me wrong it was very good and I will make it again. Thanks for sharing this tasty recipe! Read More

Very good! Reminded me of "green eggs" (as in "Green Eggs and Ham"). Had similar texture to scrambled eggs. Very unexpected but very good. I'd like to try it again but add more garlic and maybe even some mushrooms! This would make an "eggcellent" Brunch dish. Read More
