These were a nice way to use up a small amount of leftover spinach and eggs from the day before. I like these extremely low-carb pork-rind tortillas by Low-Carb Maven and keep them on hand now. They’re made with pork rinds and are very high in fat and sodium…………so I warned you. With those ready-made in the fridge, this was quick and tasty different sort of breakfast yesterday. These tortillas have only .55 net carbs per tortilla, so if you substitute, you will have to recalculate your numbers. These are suitable for all phases of Atkins and Keto diets.

1 tsp. unsalted butter
1 large egg, beaten
2 T. frozen, chopped spinach
Dash onion powder
3 oz. pork sausage patty, cooked
¼ c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese (or mozzarella)
1 Tsp. grated cheddar cheese (¼ slice)
VARIATION: Fry the egg and just layer the spinach and mozzy underneath it as you construct the stack. If you prefer, place the fried egg on top of the sausage rather than underneath it. To cut sodium, you could substitute some other low-carb pancake or tortilla, but recalculate the nutritionals if you sub.
DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 325º. Melt butter in non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add spinach and heat. Add beaten egg and dash onion powder. Scramble until just barely done and remove to a paper plate. Alternately, you could fry the egg and just layer the spinach underneath the fried egg.
With a fork, press the sausage into a large, thin patty on the surface of the same skillet and cook until done. Remove from heat. Place a tortilla on parchment or silicone lined baking pan. Evenly top with the spinach-scrambled egg mixture (or the spinach and then a fried egg). Place 2 T. Monterey Jack cheese over the top of egg/mixture, which will serve to bind the scrambled egg together in place. Place sausage on top next. Finish with remaining Monterey Jack cheese. Carefully place 1 T. (¼ slice) cheddar cheese in the center to look like an egg yolk. Pop into 325º oven and bake just long enough to melt the cheese, or around 10-15 minutes.
