Joe's Special, an easy dinner for those busy nights

We have come to use spinach leaves in our sandwiches instead of lettuce. Since my husband takes a cold lunch everyday, our weekly shopping trip includes a fresh bag of spinach for sandwich making. This will often times leave, a half bag of spinach from the week before. It is good spinach, just not as crisp for sandwiches.

It is however delicious in cooked dishes and I see more spinach in our future meals. Last night we had Joe's Special, a delicious blend of spinach, ground beef, onion, mushrooms and egg. I like to pass Parmesan cheese at the table for each person to season as they choose.

Joe's Special
by the seat of my pants
serves 4-6

1/2 - 1 pound ground beef
1 medium size sweet or red onion, diced in 1 inch pieces
8 oz mushrooms, sliced thick (we were out for this dish, but I love them in here!)
garlic salt
8-10 oz spinach 
6 eggs, beat well and set aside
Parmesan cheese

Crumble the ground beef in a skillet, top with the onions. Brown the beef well to sear, turn over and let the onions cook a minute. Add mushrooms cook a minute more.
Add spinach, toss with the beef mixture until wilted.

Immediately stir in eggs and cook until eggs are set to your liking.

Serve with buttered toast, a side salad and fruit for dessert.
And yes, dinner is done.

What a great way to use up leftover spinach. This sounds like such a tasty dinner - simple but really comforting and satisfying!

I so prefer spinach to lettuce as well! This really looks tasty! I will be adding to my dinner board on Pinterest.
