Spinach and Feta Egg Bake
This easy, one skillet dish was created for my daughter as a recovery meal when she comes home from her morning swim practices. This egg bake is also perfect for dinner as it comes together very fast for those coming-in-the-door, what's-for-dinner modes.

    Ingredients
    • 1tablespoon olive or coconut oil
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 2tablespoon prepared pesto**
    • 1cup tomatoes, chopped
    • 8cup fresh baby spinach
    • 1/2cup feta cheese
    • 8 eggs
    Instructions
    1. Heat the oil in a large skillet (it must be able to hold 8 eggs) and add the onions, sautรฉing until translucent (about 1 minute). Add in the pesto and tomatoes, mixing well with onions. Add in the spinach and wilt slightly, making sure the bottom of the skillet is covered with spinach mixture. Sprinkle the feta cheese evenly over the spinach mixture. Crack the eggs carefully into the skillet (the whites may overlap a bit and that is ok). Cover with a lid and cook until the eggs are set (the egg whites will turn from translucent to white). Carefully transfer two eggs and the spinach/feta mixture underneath them to individual plates.
    Recipe Notes

    This skillet recipe is easily adaptable to other greens (kale, turnips, mustard, or a mixture of greens) or cheeses (goat, blue, Gouda, cheddars). Be creative depending on your family's likes.

    *If you would like to make your own pesto, here is an easy recipe that is more economical as it uses walnuts instead of pricey pine nuts:

    Combine 2 cups fresh basil, 3 tablespoons walnuts, and 2 cloves garlic in a food processor or blender. Process until well blended. Slowly add in 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Process until smooth paste forms, adding oil as necessary. Add in ยผ cup grated parmesan cheese, ยฝ teaspoon sea salt, and ยผ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Process until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
