    This is a staple breakfast here in my country Malta ie the greens with bacon n eggs.
    However the greens either spinach or rucola are never cooked directly in a skillet. What we do is put the fresh leafy greens in a bowl, add and mix the dressing usually evoo, vinegar, fresh garlic, tumeric, and place the fried eggs on top of the leafy greens to, sort of, cook slightly with the hot fried egg on top.
    The leafy greens are usually chopped before, to extract the lectins from the veg as the chopping mimicks the process of an animal’s chew in nature. Usually all veg have some kind of self defense through lectins pectins etc. The slight cook also helps to eliminate these defensive chemicals.
    Spinach has a lot of oxylates so make sure to rotate with other leafy greens like rucola.

    The best way to cook this is on a griddle or in a large skillet so you can cook the eggs and meat at the same time. Put them on a plate and quickly wilt the spinach. That way, you don't end up with cold eggs while you wait for the spinach and meat to cook, as you do in the recipe instructions. :)
