How to make it:

  2. Add sardines and stir.
  3. Add wet spinach leaves and saute until wilted.
  4. Add salt. Stir.
  5. Beat your eggs with a little bit of water (if we could eat cheese, I would have added it here) and pour into pan.
  6. Shake pan to distribute ingredients evenly.
  7. Allow eggs to set (about 2 minutes) and place pan into a preheated 400 degree oven.
  8. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until eggs have puffed up nicely.
  9. Pull eggs out of the oven and allow to cool on stove top.
  10. Cut into pizza like wedges and top with a little fine salt.
