  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a 9"x13" (23x33 cm) baking dish with butter or oil, and line a plate with paper towels. Set aside.

  3. Sautée the spinach in the bacon fat for one minute, or until slightly wilted. Remove from heat.
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the eggs, bacon, spinach (with bacon grease from the pan) chives, salt, and pepper.
  5. Pour egg mixture into the baking dish(es) and bake on the middle oven rack for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly browned, and set.
  6. Cool for a few minutes, slice and serve.

Tips

If you love cheese, you might want to mix in some grated cheddar or sprinkle parmesan on top before baking. Sautéed onions are another delicious addition.
