Spinach Crustless Quiche

This was dinner last night and breakfast today.

Shelly's Spinach Crustless Quiche

2 bunches Fresh Spinach
1 Yellow Onion, diced
3 Green Onions, diced
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Oregano
a few twists of Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon of Kosher Salt
1/2 cup Bruschetta Sauce (found in the fresh pasta section)
1/2 cup Shredded Cheese, Italian Blend
5 Eggs, beaten
1/8 cup Shredded Mozzarella
Butter/oil for sauteing

Preheat oven to 350. Saute spinach till wilted. Drain and squeeze out any liquid. Set aside. Saute onions till golden. Add garlic and saute 1 minute more. Add cooked spinach and saute till dry and separated about 1 minute. Set aside to cool. Mix all ingredients together except 1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella.

Be sure veggie mixture has cooled slightly before adding eggs.

Pour into a lightly greased (I use olive oil) Pyrex casserole dish. Top with mozzarella cheese. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden.

For dinner I served it with beans on the side for a yummy totally vegetarian meal. Leftovers made a great breakfast this morning. I just nuked it for a minute.

Highlights of the day:

* The sun didn't come out till 2 PM today. It was gray and cool... like a little early taste of Fall. I loved it. Come on. Bring it on... sweater weather, fuzzy blankets, cuddling. Note to self: find someone to cuddle with. Seriously though I'm soooo done with summer.

* Made another flavor of the Breakfast Souffle from the other day. Yum. I'll post it this weekend.

* It's Friday... which means tomorrow is Saturday. My favorite day of the week. I'm going to picnic at the beach. Whatcha got planned?

I made this for brunch today with some tweaks. What are the red bits? I figured tomatoes and that's what I added. Also added fresh thyme, basil, and rosemary from the garden. This was so delish!! The whole family loved it.

I got your email by the way - thanks for the words of wisdom!
