1 tbps. Olive Oil
1 cup Chopped Onion

3 cups Low-Fat Shredded Cheddar Cheese
½ tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
1/8 tsp. Nutmeg
5 Large Eggs, beaten (or Egg Beaters if you want to cut calories)
First, preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
Lightly oil a 9-inch pie plate, use cooking spray if you have it.
Next, heat a frying pan and oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Once hot, add the onion to the pan and cook for 5 minutes, stirring until soft.
Add the spinach, and continue to cook and stir, until the moisture has evaporated; remove the mixture from the heat once done.
Now, in a separate medium bowl, beat the eggs or egg mixture. Once beat, mix in the cheese, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
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.
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.
Let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into four to six triangle, pie-style pieces, plate and enjoy!
