Gruyère, Bacon, and Spinach Scrambled Eggs

Ingredients

Scrambled eggs have always been a favourite of mine. But they do tend to get boring after a while. Why not mix it up a little and make this restaurant-worthy take on scrambled eggs?

8 large eggs
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
salt and pepper
1 tbsp. olive oil or unsalted butter
2 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked and broken into pieces
2 cups spinach, torn up
2 oz. Gruyère cheese, shredded

Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon water and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil or butter in 10-inch nonstick skillet on medium. Add eggs and cook, stirring with rubber spatula every few seconds, to desired doneness, 2 to 3 minutes for medium-soft eggs. Fold in bacon, spinach, and Gruyère cheese.
  3. Enjoy!

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. It’s not unusual for me to have breakfast for dinner just to get more breakfast! Whether you make this as a breakfast-for-dinner meal or actual breakfast, these are quick, easy, delicious, and customizable! To customize, add in spinach, mushrooms, peppers, bacon, or whatever you wish at Step 9. You can also add more than 1 egg to the boat, just make sure to give them a bit of space.
