skillet-baked eggs with spinach, yogurt, and chili oil

Egg dish. Delicious with tons of versatility. Adapted from Bon Appetit Jan 2012. Could use a mix of greens like kale as well. Bacon would also be a good edition. Might finish in oven in heat proof serving dishes or Steve over a toasted English muffin or french bread. Might try cooking eggs on Big Green Egg as well for next time.
