Bite me

Here's an all veggie version of my "Bites" I made for dinner last night. For those of you who haven't tried past "bite" versions: think crustless quiche. They make a great light supper with a salad or are perfect party appetizers given the cute mini shape.


Shelly's Artichoke Florentine Bites

1/2 Yellow Onion, diced
3 Green Onions, diced
2 clove Garlic, diced
1 teaspoon Butter
1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
Dash Salt and a few twists of Pepper
5 Eggs
1/2 cup Spinach, cooked, chopped
1/2 cup Artichoke Hearts (non marinated), chopped fine
1 cup Shredded Cheese, Italian Blend

Preheat oven to 350 F. Saute onions in butter till golden. Add garlic and saute 1 minute more. Set aside to cool. Mix all ingredients together. Be sure onions have cooled slightly before adding to egg mixture. Spoon (I use a small ice cream scoop) into lightly greased mini muffin tin. Bake for 30 minutes or until centers are firm. Makes 24.

Genius! I'm making these tonight. I still haven't bothered to buy muffin tins, but I'll bake the stuff in a 8x8 and cut into squares. Yum!

i am making these right now, with the following mods:
1) i thought i had canned spinach but did not! so i used some recently steamed brocolli, keeping fingers crossed.
2) i don't have a 24-muffin tin, just a 9-muffin tin, so they will be larger "bites".
3) i don't have cheese or spice mixes, so i just used some basil, parsley, and chives with mozzarella and parmesan. I could have tossed in some oregano, but i'm such a huge fan of basil i just didn't want to accidentally overwhelm the taste.

hopefully all turns out good! can't wait - love your site eggface!
