- *I often use mozzarella cheese in this recipe. I love Sargento’s traditional mozzarella which has a nice, thick cut, although a sharp cheddar or Italian blend are also quite nice. You could even use a Mexican blend cheese and stir in some chopped red pepper and/or black olives and then top with a spoonful of guacamole or chopped avocado. Sometimes, I add some shredded deli ham (2 ounces or ½ cup is enough to enhance the flavor). The recipe is delightful as is but also a perfect blank slate on which to build.
- **Recently, I’ve been experimenting with club soda or seltzer water (any flavorless sparkling water will work) instead of milk to create a little extra lightness to scrambled and baked eggs. If you don’t have any, milk may be used instead. If you have neither, don’t worry. I’ve made this recipe with no added liquid and it is still quite good.
- ***To quickly wilt the spinach, I often cook it in the microwave for about a minute in a vented bowl. Not that when microwaving the spinach, you will need to squeeze out the excess water. Tip: A microwave popcorn popper doubles beautifully as a vegetable steamer. It’s just a big bowl with a vented lid ᠆ inexpensive and ideal for quickly steaming veggies in the microwave…and making popcorn, of course!
