I don't know who Joe is, but this is delicious! I've adopted this recipe and tweaked it to make it fresher and a little healthier. I love the garlicky spinach in this one. :)

    olive oil
  • 1
    small onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp
    basil
  • 1/2 tsp
    oregano
  • 2 tsp
    garlic powder or adobo brand seasoning (more if you like garlic!)
  • 1/4 tsp

How to Make Joe's Special

Step-by-Step

  1. Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Add ground beef and cook, stirring, until browned and crumbly. Drain well in a colander.
  3. Add onion to the skillet and cook until tender but not browned.
  4. Stir in basil, oregano, salt and pepper.
  5. Add spinach leaves, drizzle with olive oil, then add Adobo (garlic powder) and cook until spinach has reduced down. (Seems like a lot of spinach, but it cooks way down. If necessary, do it in batches)
  6. Add beef to spinach & onion mixture.
  7. Beat eggs, add to skillet and cook, stirring, until eggs are set.
  8. This makes a healthy main dish, or can be a side dish if serving more people.
