What You'll Need

  • 6 whole eggs
  • 3 tbsp skim milk
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped or torn washed spinach leaves

How to Make It

  1. First, begin to heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and coat it well with cooking spray. If you wish, you may want to use a non-stick skillet to avoid having to clean stubborn eggs off of it later. 
  2. Crack the eggs into a medium sized dish. Use a wire whisk to whisk the eggs to break up the yolks. Add the milk to the eggs mixture, as well as the salt, and the ground black pepper. Whisk the mixture together well. 
  1. Pour the egg mixture into the heated pan, and use a fork to stir the egg mixture continuously while it cooks. Add the spinach to the pan when the eggs begin to take form, and continue cooking the eggs and spinach until the spinach wilts and the eggs are no longer runny.
  2. Remove the eggs from the pan, and serve them immediately.
