Popeye Would Love This Dish!

Dear Readers,

Recently readers of the Raleigh News and Observer were asked to submit recipes of dishes that were made as comfort food when they were children.  Amy Jackson of Chocowinity, N.C. entered this recipe.  It sounded good, so I tried it and my husband and I enjoyed it very much.  The following is a direct quote from the newspaper:

“My mother made a dinner dish that I loved.  She calls it “fried spinach”.  It is really good!  You brown a pound of hamburger with lots of garlic.  Drain the fat and add in a box of thawed chopped spinach.  Cover the pan for a few minutes to let it warm up.  Then add four eggs that have been beaten with some black pepper.  Stir until the eggs cook.  Top with Parmesan cheese.  It’s not really fried and has a similar taste to Italian wedding soup.”

Notes:  I used a 20 oz. package of seasoned Italian ground turkey and added an additional egg to the mixture.  A thawed 10 oz, box of frozen chopped spinach is just the right amount.  I also used 3 cloves of crushed garlic.

Hope you enjoy it and remember to

Keep smilin’!
