  • 1/2 yellow onion chopped
  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 c heavy cream
  • 1 box (10 oz. ) frozen chopped broccoli or spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/2 pound swiss cheese, shredded (Gruyere is the best, but more expensive)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter a 10-inch tart pan or 9-inch deep pie plate or 9x9 glass baking dish.

  4. Drain bacon on paper towels and chop coarsely.
  5. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings from skillet.

  7. In a large bowl, combine eggs, cream, broccoli, cheese, salt, and pepper.
  8. Stir in bacon and onion.
  9. Pour mixture into prepared pan.
  10. Bake 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Watch carefully toward the end as oven temperatures vary. (You can tent the pie with foil to prevent over-browning.)

    This sounds good. I think I’m going to try it with fresh spinach. I started using fresh spinach with that “spinach dip” everyone makes with that soup mix. I always felt I squeezed some of the spinach out when I thawed the frozen stuff.
