Servings 8


  • 12 whole eggs I like Vital Farms
  • 1 lb bacon Pastured, organic
  • 16 oz baby spinach
  • 1/2 yellow onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 6 oz gouda or sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt Redmonds Real salt or celtic
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper plus more to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place your bacon on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 17-20 minutes until crispy.  Let cool, then crumble with your hands into bite sized pieces and set aside.
  • Whisk your 12 eggs in a separate bowl and season with salt and pepper, add your grated cheese of choice, bacon and whisk again until combined.
  • Add 1 tbsp grass fed butter to a seasoned cast iron skillet or stainless steel skillet. Sautee the bell pepper and onion until softened over medium heat, then add the fresh spinach until wilted and coated in the butter.
  • Add the well combined egg, bacon, and cheese mixture to the skillet and stir the veggies gently into the eggs with a wooden spoon until evenly distributed.  Keep the mixture on the stove for 60 seconds to set, and then transfer the skillet into the oven to bake for 25-30 minutes until set and golden on the top.


This is great for a quick brunch option or meal prep for the week.  Serve with  avocado, salsa, and fresh cilantro for a SoCal twist.
Make a balanced meal by pairing with avocado (healthy fat), potato hash (quality carb) and berries and greens (fiber + phytonutrients)
