Monica's favorite non-stick skillet for cooking eggs
Although these are pricey, they are the best! They have a safe Green-Tek non-stick finish and are dishwasher and oven safe. This is by the far the most durable and best non-stick skillet I've ever owned. (also available in additional sizes)

In a previous post, I shared my recipe for Corn Cake Toppers and showed how to serve them on top of chili and soup. They also make a delicious base for a breakfast stack. Today's post is one of my favorite combos. 

These breakfast stacks have 3 layers of ingredients: eggs scrambled with fresh spinach, Canadian bacon, and a corn cake. That's it. Easy, nutritious and delicious.

High in protein, iron, calcium, and vitamin A. These aren't exactly low in calories & carbs, but they are loaded with nutrients. (If you're watching your sodium intake, you may want to omit the Canadian Bacon.)

Here's how to make and assemble them.

Step-by-step photos for making
Eggs Florentine Corn Cake Breakfast Stacks

Step 1. Make a batch of corn cakes. You'll find my step-by-step photos here:

Step 2. Brown the Canadian Bacon in a skillet that's been coated with cooking spray. Use 1 or 2 slices per breakfast stack.

Step 3. Meanwhile, cut some fresh spinach into 1/4" shreds and toss it in a hot skillet that's coated with cooking spary. Cook just until it's wilted--this only takes a minute.

(It's pricey, but the best!)

Step 4. Whisk the eggs and add them to the spinach. I use a 1:1 ration of whole eggs to eggs whites--reduces calories and fat, while you get a protein boost from the egg whites. These cook up quickly.

Step 5. Season eggs with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 6. Put a warm corn cake on a plate.

Step 7. Add the Canadian Bacon.
