In the kitchen for Mother's Day - Spinach and feta eggs w/garlic dill potatos
This past Sunday was Mother's Day. I headed over to make my mama some breakfast.
On the menu:
- Spinach feta scrambled eggs
- Garlic and Dill potatoes
- Fresh strawberries
- Flakey biscuits (straight out of the can, in this case. YUM)
First I started with the potatoes since they take longer to cook and I didn't want to use 2 pans. Also, I was cooking for 3, so adjust accordingly.
For the cooking you'll need the following:
* 1 large sauce pan
* 1 wooden spoon
Garlic Dill potatoes
* 3 sm/md potatoes (One for each person or use 1/2 large potato per person)
* 1 tbsp olive oil
* 2 tsp minced garlic (OR MORE!! :))
* 2 tbsp fresh dill
* salt to taste
1) Wash potatoes and cube with skin on. (The smaller they are, the faster they cook)
2) Heat oil in large sauce pan on med/high heat. Add garlic and stir.
3) Add potatoes and stir.
4) Cook potatoes until brown. Be sure to let them sit as there isn't a need to constantly poke at them. But be sure to check on them and move them around to get an even toasty look and taste.
5) Add fresh dill. I didn't chop mine, I just pulled it off the stems and added it to the potatoes. Stir and add salt.
6) Place on serving dish and keep warm!
On to the eggs!
Spinach and Feta scrambled eggs
* 6 eggs (can sub all egg whites or my favorite 2 whole eggs and 4 egg whites)
* 2 tsp olive oil
* 1 1/2 cups fresh chopped spinach
* 1/4 cup reduced fat Feta cheese
* 1/4 cup med yellow onion (small chop)
1) Using the same large saucepan, heat olive oil.
2) In a bowl, scramble eggs and add onion.
3) Add spinach to pan and cook until it starts to wilt.
4) Add egg and onion mixture.
6) Add feta cheese just before eggs start to firm up. The cheese will melt in a bit.
7) Ready to nom.
Eggs cook up pretty quick and get cold just as fast, so serve and nom immediately.
While the potatoes were cooking up, I cut up the strawberries and put the biscuits in the oven. So everything was nice and warm when we were ready to eat. Paired with mimosas or just plain oj, this was a very yummy breakfast!
