"This came from the Mayo Clinic website in their diabetic recipes section originally. But of course being me I've tweaked it some for more flavour (it was really very bland) without sacrificing its healthy properties."

Step 1

Preheat broiler. Heat half the olive oil in a cast iron skillet (or a skillet with a flameproof handle); add garlic and cook 1 minute.

Add the red pepper, potatoes, herbs, and half of salt and pepper to the skillet; cook about 5 minutes longer or until potatoes are starting to get crisp.

Step 5

Flatten potato layer; broil 4 inches from heat about 2 minutes.

Step 6

Place pan back on burner; spread the spinach mixture evenly over the potato layer.

Step 7

Whisk eggs together with remaining salt and pepper; pour evenly over the spinach.

Step 8

Sprinkle cheese over the top; cook about 3 minutes or until eggs are beginning to set.

Step 9
