- 2 tablespoons onion — chopped
- 3 tablespoons butter — divided
- 2 packages frozen chopped spinach — thawed
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 cup Swiss cheese — shredded, or mozzarella cheese
- nonstick spray
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9-inch pie pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a skillet over medium high heat. Add the onions and saute for a few minutes until they begin to get limp. Squeeze as much water as possible out of the thawed spinach and add the spinach to the onions in the skillet. Continue cooking until the spinach is heated through and any extra water has evaporated.
In the meantime, beat the eggs lightly. Add the cream, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Whisk to mix. Add the spinach/onion mixture to the egg mixture and stir to combine. Pour into the pie pan. Top with the shredded cheese and dot with the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until set and golden brown. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
Reheats well. Recipe can be doubled and baked in a large rectangular casserole, but baking time may be extended somewhat.
