  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium. Add scallions and as much spinach as will fit; season with salt and pepper. Cook until wilted, tossing and adding more spinach as room becomes available, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain off excess liquid; mix in goat cheese. Transfer to a bowl; cover to keep warm. Set aside.

  • Wipe out skillet; heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil over medium. Gently crack eggs into skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook until whites are almost set, about 1 minute. Cover, and remove from heat; let stand until whites are set but yolks are still soft, about 3 minutes.

  • Top each piece of toast with spinach mixture and 1 egg; serve immediately.

So delicious and it's a quick recipe. I didn't have goat cheese, i used mozzarella instead and it was good too!

Absolutely delicious! The eggs came out perfect and it was so easy! Also, I've tried this on a toasted whole wheat bagel and it was fantastic. This is a repeat, repeat recipe.

Made this today, it was a HUGE hit. In fact, I didn't make enough and my family was pretty miffed that there weren't more for seconds. I wasn't sure how well it would go over so I didn't want to overbuy - my mistake. Even my picky 11 year old who normally turns his nose up to warm "greens" loved it! I'm headed to the store to buy more spinach and scallions to make a second batch for breakfast tomorrow! I served strawberries the side too!
