Author Notes

When I was in college there was a restaurant that served what became my go to/always order/breakfast/late night dinner. It is a non recipe, that is, the proportions of ingredients are just a guideline. The "original" called for ground beef and chicken eggs and onion, garlic and parmesan. I changed the ingredients but the spirit is still true to the "original". —dymnyno

What You'll Need
  • 3 ounces ground pork
  • 2 ounces chopped onions
  • 6 ounces ,a big handful of spinach, chopped a little if necessary to fit into the pan
  • 1 large fresh duck egg beat with 1 teaspoon of water
  • 1/8 cup parmesan
  • pinch of salt and black pepper
  1. Saute pork in an iron skillet and add the onion. Saute until browned.
  2. Add the spinach and using tongs keep folding into the hot ingredients until completely wilted.
  3. Beat the egg with a little water and pinch of salt.
  4. Add to the spinach mixture and gently mix and smooth out the egg and spinach to incorporate all ingredients evenly.
  5. Sprinkle the parmesan over the top. Turn off the burner and leave for a few minutes to slightly melt.
  6. Grind black pepper and a little sea salt. Enjoy the whole pan or share. A big hunk of freshly baked sour dough bread is great.
