I agree with the previous comment! This would have been a great breakfast without the yoghurt!

My husband cooked this & scrambled eggs went watery - think he overdid them though never used yogurt in scrambled eggs before. Really enjoyed the flavours & didn't miss toast!

A good breakfast, but I think scrambled egg is better cooked with a splash of milk and a touch of salt. Something additional is needed for the spinach too e.g. a squeeze of lime or lemon.

This actually turned out to be quite good and not forgetting a filling breakfast. Didn't have any basil, used Italian seasoning instead. Pretty good. :)
