How to make it

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add in garlic and chopped spinach and cook until spinach is just wilted, about 1 minute. Set spinach aside in a small bowl and wipe out pan with a paper towel.
  2. Place the same skillet back over medium-low heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to skillet and crack eggs gently into pan. Cook eggs until whites are almost completely set, about 2 minutes. Gently flip eggs over and top each egg with some spinach and a slice of cheese. Place the lid onto the skillet. Cook until cheese is starting to melt, about 30 seconds. Place each egg onto a toasted English muffin. Serve immediately.
