Ingredients

  • 1 tbps. Olive Oil

  • 1 cup Chopped Onion

  • 1 10 oz Package Frozen Chopped Spinach

  • ½ tsp. Salt

  • 1/8 tsp. Ground Black Pepper

Directions

  1. First, preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit.

  2. Lightly oil a 9-inch pie plate, use cooking spray if you have it.

  3. Next, heat a frying pan and oil in a skillet over medium heat.

  4. Once hot, add the onion to the pan and cook for 5 minutes, stirring until soft.

  5. Add the spinach, and continue to cook and stir, until the moisture has evaporated; remove the mixture from the heat once done.

  6. Now, in a separate medium bowl, beat the eggs or egg mixture. Once beat, mix in the cheese, salt, pepper and nutmeg.

  7. Next, combine the egg mixture with the spinach & onion mixture by carefully pouring the eggs into the pie plate, and spread the mixture evenly throughout the pie plate.

  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top is lightly browned. Use a knife or toothpick to test center to make sure it’s cooked; the firmness of the pie and how clean the toothpick is upon removal should give you a good idea of how ready it is.

  9. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into four to six triangle, pie-style pieces, plate and enjoy!
