Instructions Checklist
  • Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add scallions and parsley; cook and stir constantly until scallions soften, about 2 minutes. Stir in spinach and cover; cook until spinach starts to wilt, about 5 minutes. Uncover and continue to cook, stirring occasionally until flavors combine, about 20 minutes.

  • 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.

Super easy recipe and tasty. This works for a low carb diet a regular diet snack breakfast side dish. Could be eaten like a real pancake with maple syrup. I always have frozen spinach and eggs on hand. I'm going to make this all the time! Read More

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.

I’m at the cabin, so used what I had on hand. Frozen spinach (thawed). Dehydrated onion. Ran under the broiler to finish cooking. Topped with Parmesan and sour cream. Read More
