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.

“So,” my husband asked while cooking his breakfast, “can I use them yet or should I take the pan off the burner?
