  1. Can you make this in the oven? I don’t have a microwave and wondering if a glass jar in the oven is ok AND at what temperature and for how long?

    • The eggs won’t cook the same in the oven. If you don’t have a microwave, then you can cook your scrambled eggs in a fry-pan on the stovetop.
      Wilt the spinach in the pan, then remove and chop up. Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the cream then whisk a little & add salt & pepper. Add to the pan with some butter and oil and cook stirring gently until done. Add the parmesan & spinach over as you are cooking and stir through. Hope this helps!

  2. What is the shelf life for these? Like can I make two or three and have them for the next two or three days? Would love to prep this for my wed thurs Friday (early mornings). Or is this just appropriate for the night before or day of?

    • Great question! I have not tried making them more than one day out. Eggs that are cracked are ok to eat from 2-4 days when kept in the fridge, so you could certainly make them in advance for a couple of days. Just don’t shake up the ingredients until you’re ready to cook them.
