Ingredients:

4 cups lightly-packed baby spinach

8 slices bacon, preferably uncured, nitrate-free

8 sliced gluten-free bread, toasted (I used Canyon Bakehouse)

2 tablespoons chopped chives

4 large eggs, lightly beaten, preferably organic

1 tablespoon olive oil

sea salt and fresh ground pepper, as needed

Equipment:

aluminum foil

baking sheet

oven

paper towels

frying pan

cutting board

Cooking instruction summary:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Set a baking rack on the baking sheet. Put the bacon on the baking rack. Bake for 30 minutes, carefully flipping halfway through, or until desired crispness is achieved. Transfer cooked bacon to a paper towel lined plate to cool.Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Rinse the baby spinach and shake lightly to remove some of the water. Put the spinach and chives in the skillet, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring, until the spinach is wilted. Remove cooked spinach and chives to a paper towel lined cutting board, removing as much moisture as possible. Discard the paper towels. Chop the spinach and chives roughly. Stir the chopped spinach and chives into the lightly beaten eggs. Return to the skillet and cook until the eggs are set.Divide the cooked eggs into four portions. If desired, spread pesto on the toasted bread, then put the bacon on one slice of bread and top it with one-fourth of the eggs. Top the eggs with microgreens if using. Complete the sandwich with the second slice of bread. Serve with extra pesto on the side if desired. (In my book you can never have enough pesto.)
