Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter (I used olive oil)
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt (I used reduced fat)

  • ½ cup roughly chopped fresh spinach
  • 3-4 fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • 4-5 small mozzarella balls
  • 2 cherry peppers (from grocery market deli bar), sliced in halves
  • 1 teaspoon Greek seasoning (I used a mixture of dried oregano, parsley, marjoram, thyme and garlic powder)

Instructions

  1. In a small (4- or 5-inch) cast-iron skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, yogurt, salt and chili flakes; mix well. Add the spinach and basil and just give one or two stirs. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet. Add the mozzarella and cherry peppers and sprinkle Greek seasoning on top. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover with a lid, and cook for about 3 minutes.
  2. Remove the lid and use a rubber spatula to gently lift up the edges of the egg mixture, tilting the skillet slightly to let the uncooked eggs run under the bottom. Cover and cook another minute or two. Do this two or three more times until the eggs are completely cooked. When done, serve this straight from the skillet. If there are two hungry mouths, share by cutting it in half.
