Nutrition Tip: The egg yolk has valuable nutrients you won’t find in the white, like lutein may help boost brain function and protect the eyes from damage. And even an egg every day is healthy for your cholesterol level.
- 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
- 2 cups spiralized butternut squash
- 3 cups baby spinach
- 6 large eggs
- 1/4 cup 2% milk
- 1/2 cup shredded lowfat Cheddar cheese, divided
- Preheat broiler.
- Heat butter in medium non-stick, oven-safe skillet over medium heat, making sure to coat pan. Add butternut squash and cook 5-6 minutes. Add spinach and season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook 2-3 minutes, tossing vegetables together gently, until spinach is wilted.
- While vegetables cook, whisk eggs and milk in a bowl. Stir in ¼ cup shredded cheese.
- Add eggs to pan. Let eggs set in pan 4-5 minutes. Bottom of eggs will become firm, top of eggs will still be uncooked.
- Add remaining ¼ cup cheese on top and carefully place skillet under broiler 2-3 minutes, or until completely cooked and lightly browned. Remove from oven.
- Let cool in skillet 1-2 minutes, then slide to large plate or cutting board. Cut into 4 pieces for serving.
