Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On June 18, 2009 @ 5:59 pm In Breakfast,Eggs,Recipes | 30 Comments

NOTE: Skillet is HOT when it comes out of the oven.  Do NOT attempt to grab the handle without a hot pad. Not that I have personal experience

4 slices bacon, crumbled ($.83)
8 eggs ($.80)
1/4 cup milk ($.03)
1 tsp salt and pepper, each
1/2 onion, sliced into circles ($.15)
2 tsp olive oil ($.05)
about 3 cups spinach (free from garden)
1/2 – 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese ($.75)
6 pieces of bread ($.40)
2-3 Tbsp (dairy free) margarine ($.20)
3 bananas ($.20)


1. In bowl, whisk bacon crumbles, eggs, milk, salt and pepper. 

2. In skillet, saute onions in 2 tsp olive oil.

3. Once brown, add a few tsp of water and cook another 1-2 minutes.

4. Add spinach and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes, until it wilts.


5. Pour egg mixture over the spinach and onions. 

6. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, until…

7. Until the eggs have set around the edges. 

8.  Bake at 450 for 5 minutes.

9. Add shredded cheese to the top and bake another 1-2 minutes until cheese melts.  (I omitted this, but this is how I’ve done it before!)

10. Serve with toast and bananas.

Cost $3.41

P.S.  Yes, I was distracted by 2 screaming toddlers and was not paying attention when I grabbed the handle without a hot pad.  I burned (first degree) all 4 fingers and part of my palm.  I’m taking good care of it, under the supervison of my sister who is an MD!  (So thankful she answered when I called!)
