Directions:
Directions:
Preheat a large skillet with oil and make sure that you preheat it with the skillet lid on so that the lid heats up. When heated, cover the entire pan with the fresh spinach. Drop the eggs into different quadrants of the pan. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and basil over the eggs and around the pan. Cover with the lid and lower the temperature to below medium. I usually cook these very slowly because I like all of the egg whites to be steamed and well done. FOR VARIATIONS: Spread out the rest of the ingredients for your variation around the skillet and let it cook until the eggs are done.
