Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt plus a pinch for the onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan (1 oz)
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves (2 oz)
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Heat a very large (12-14 inch) nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes. Add the olive oil. 
  • Add the onion slices. Sprinkle them with a pinch of Kosher salt and a pinch of black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes. Lower heat to medium. 
  • While the onion is cooking, in a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt, a pinch of black pepper, and 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Set aside. 
  • When the onions are golden brown, add the spinach leaves to the skillet. Cook, stirring, just until beginning to wilt, about 1 minute. 
  • Pour the egg mixture into the skillet. Cook the eggs, pushing them back and forth with a rubber spatula, until set to your liking. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Serve immediately.
