  • Three 10-ounce packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry

  • Cooking spray 

  • 6 large eggs 

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper 

  • 2 cups low-fat milk 

  • 1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese 

  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika 

  • 6 English muffins, split and toasted

  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper 



  • Preheat the oven to 350�F.

  • Coat a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray and press spinach into the bottom, making an even layer. Using the back of a spoon, make six 3-inch indentations in the spinach layer. Carefully break each egg, and pour one egg into each indentation.

  • Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat, and add the flour, salt, and red pepper to the saucepan. Slowly add milk, whisking continuously while pouring, and heat for 8 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly. Once thickened, remove from the heat and add the cheese. Stir the milk and cheese mixture until the cheese melts.

  • Pour the milk and cheese mixture over the egg and spinach casserole. Top with paprika.

  • Place the baking dish in the oven and cook until egg yolks are nearly set (about 25 minutes).

  • Place two muffin halves onto six plates. Divide the spinach-egg mixture into 6 equal portions. Top English muffin halves with one portion of spinach-egg mixture. Top with black pepper.
