Creamy Spinach with Fried Eggs

My partner is a big fan of hearty breakfasts, and he loved this recipe. I admit that I am more of a dinner person when it comes to hearty and filling meals.

It’s super easy to make, requires only a few inexpensive ingredients, and you only need one pan to cook it all in.

Plus, you can treat yourself to something sweet afterward, like Italian ice cream, because it’s a light meal with only about 350 calories per serving.

And I think it’s handy to have a treat or two planned with all this heat and travel.
