With the Super Bowl just about a month away, it’s about time you start thinking about the delectable recipes you’re going to make. La Brea Bakery has some amazing game-day ideas that you’re going to love.

Ingredients

  • whole eggs, extra large
  • 2  Teaspoons  olive oil, divided
  • 1  Tablespoon  white onion, diced
  • 10  Ounces  fresh spinach, stems removed, rough chopped
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  lemon zest
  • 1  Teaspoon  fresh parsley, chopped
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  • rolls, such as La Brea Bakery telera slider rolls
  • slices Swiss cheese

Directions

Start by cracking the eggs into a small mixing bowl, whisk together until well combined, set aside.

Over medium heat, add 1 teaspoon olive oil and the diced onions into a medium-size non-stick pan. Begin to sweat the onions until they start to turn translucent.

Next, add chopped spinach and gently wilt, about 30 seconds. Continue by slowly adding in the eggs, lemon zest, and parsley. Stir regularly with a rubber spatula until the eggs start to firm up. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, with the remaining olive oil, lightly brush the inner sides of the telera rolls and toast on a preheated medium high grill, until a light char forms and the rolls begin to soften up.

Start assembling the sliders by laying out the bread, toasted side up, and placing half a slice of Swiss cheese on each slice of bread. Divide your scrambled egg and spinach mixture evenly onto each bottom portion of the roll, place top portion of roll over eggs, and serve immediately.  

Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
