Five Eggs

{click image to view large}

I do not enjoy winter. But! I do enjoy cooking winter comfort food. These were waiting for a Crustless Spinach Quiche last night:

Ingredients (for 6 servings)

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed to remove as much moisture as possible
  • 5 eggs
  • 3/4 lb. Muenster cheese (or Monterey Jack), grated
  • salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 350F, and butter a 9-inch pie plate.

Heat oil in skillet on medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until wilted. Add spinach; cook until excess moisture is evaporated. Let cool.

Beat eggs in a bowl. Add cheese. Stir in onion-spinach mixture, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Bake until top is nicely browned and tester comes out clean, 40-45 minutes.

  1. The light-striations give a crystallizing character to the ovoids. Crystals are so associated with mystical bridging that the image seems to take me beyond somewhere. But then, you are good at taking your audience “beyond”… Which is what brings is back 🙂

    • Thank you for continuing to come back and comment, Ted!

      These did appear to me to have an inner life, shining through. So I’m glad that resonated with you, too.
