- 8 eggs
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1/2 pound fresh spinach (rinsed, dried, and torn into roughly 1-inch pieces)
- 8 slices bacon
- 1/2 large onion (peeled and diced)
- 1 cup cheddar cheese (grated)
- Kosher salt (to taste)
- Gather the ingredients.
- Preheat oven to 450 F.
- Cook the bacon in a cast iron skillet over medium-low heat. When bacon is crispy, remove it from the pan, drain on paper towels, and set aside.
- When it’s cool, roughly chop it into 1/4-inch pieces—or just crumble it up.
- Reserve about 2 tablespoons of bacon fat, then add diced onion and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes or until it’s slightly translucent.
- Turn off the heat under the pan, then add the spinach pieces and stir with a wooden spoon for a minute until the leaves are fully wilted.
- In a glass mixing bowl, thoroughly beat the eggs until nice and frothy. Add the milk and stir until combined. Season to taste with Kosher salt.
- While the egg mixture is still frothy, pour it into the skillet, and sprinkle the bacon pieces in as well. Give everything a stir to distribute the ingredients evenly. This is the last time you’re going to stir, so get it all out of your system now!
- Turn the heat under the skillet back on to about medium and cook for about 5 minutes or until the egg begins to set. No stirring!
- Add the grated cheese, sprinkling it evenly across the top, and then transfer the skillet to the oven. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until the eggs are fully cooked.
