Fried Eggs with Spinach is an easy dish you can make in one pan. It is packed with great flavors and nutritious foods. You need 6 ingredients only. It makes a delicious lunch or dinner that is ready in no time!


  • 2 large eggs free range or organic
  • 2 rings of large green pepper approx. 2 cm / 1 inch thick (~ 40g / 1.4 oz)
  • ½ small red onion 30g / 1.1 oz
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach 30g / 1.1 oz
  • ¼ cup sliced organic bacon 30g / 1.1 oz
  • 1 Tbsp ghee or unsalted organic butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Rinse the bell pepper, remove stem and seeds. Slice it into two thick (2 cm / 1 inch) slices just near the center of the pepper (the widest part). Save the rest of the pepper for a salad or with your breakfast.
  • Grease a non-stick pan with half of the ghee or butter and add the pepper rings to the pan. Cook on one side for about 3 minutes. Crack an egg into each of the bell pepper rings. Don’t worry if some of the egg white leaks out, you can simply remove it later on with a spatula. Season with salt and ground black pepper and cook until the egg white becomes firm. When done, set aside.
  • In a separate pan, warm the remaining of the ghee or butter and add finely chopped red onion. Cook for a few minutes until slightly brown. Then, add sliced bacon and cook shortly. Add washed and drained baby spinach, season with salt and cook for another minute. Note: I already had some crispy bacon prepared in my fridge, so I just added that at the end.
  • Place everything on a serving plate and enjoy!
  • Note: Try to get nitrate-free bacon or slice your own from pork belly.
