  • Beat eggs with an electric mixer in a large bowl until thick and light in color. Beat the spinach mixture into the eggs; add salt and ground black pepper.

  • Melt remaining butter in a heavy 10-inch skillet over medium heat; pour in the egg mixture. Cover and cook until eggs are set, about 10 minutes. Loosen the edges of the pancake with a spatula; turn out onto a serving platter. Cut in two with a sharp knife.

Spinach Pancake Haiku: "Gotta serve with ham Dr. Seuss-style for kids (or the young at heart!)" What an easy and delicious side dish bright and healthy. My only swap was sweet onion (around 1/3 c. finely-chopped) vs. scallions. I followed the recipe as written and only found slight difficulty in loosening and flipping the egg/pancake out of the pan; am thinking that a quick broil in the oven with Parmesan would rock this to 10 stars but we loved it just the way that it is.
