Author Notes: The whole recipe costs about $2. and feeds 6!! You can't beat that! Now that's dirt cheap.Stacey Snacks

Serves 6

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cups Swiss or Gruyere Cheese
  • 10 ounces package of frozen spinach, defrosted
  • salt & pepper
  1. Saute sliced onion in some olive oil in a skillet and add the defrosted and drained spinach to the pan. Cook for a few minutes until onion is translucent. Remove from the stove so the onion spinach mixture cools.
  2. Whisk eggs and cheese together and when the spinach is cool enough, add to the eggs and cheese mixture. Pour into a 9" greased pie dish and bake in a 350F oven for 25-30 minutes. Let rest a few minutes before serving.

I used 300grams fresh baby spinach, added one leek, half a cup of bacon pieces, 3 chopped portobello mushrooms and I substituted ricotta and feta for the cheese. I added an extra egg, and had enough mixture to make 6 muffins as well. Brilliant and very very tasty recipe. Cheers...Michelle

I'm a carnivore. My girlfriend is a vegetarian. I cooked this one day for brunch for the two of us - and wow! I found it satisfying for all of the egg content (protein) and she loved it as well. I'd compare it to a nicely overstuffed omelet.

I used fresh spinach, and cooked it with with the onion like Stacey mentions above. However, I don't have a 9" pie pan, but I do have a 10" cast iron skillet. I added 2 additional eggs, and another half cup of cheese and poured everything into the (Pam) greased skillet.

It took a while longer to cook - I just kept checking until the top was evenly browned.

The results were fantastic. Nice and moist, and very filling for a Sunday brunch. My girlfriend has already requested this again!

Annie,
Fresh spinach is even better, just throw it in the pan when you are cooking the onion, because the mixture should be cooked. I use fresh spinach more than frozen.
Don't forget the salt & pepper, I think I forgot that in the directions.

Best, Stacey

I look forward to trying this, but I would like to substitute fresh spinach--I guess it would need to be cooked a little first.
