This is a very good recipe...made it without the ham completely vegetarian....smelled so good baking...added a dash of nutmeg to egg
I've made this several times and it is delicious.
This is a pretty good recipe but needed a bit of spice/seasoning for my family. I made it twice, altering ONLY the addition of mushrooms the first time (husband is allergic). It went over "ok" but with a few complaints about seasoning. I made it again altering it a bit. I used fresh spinach, used green chile instead of mushrooms, added salt, pepper and garlic-to taste. I used Monterey Jack cheese but only used about 1/2 to 2/3 the amount. This time, family loved it! When I make it for breakfast, I use cooked bacon and/or sausage!
Yummy! Fine without the ham if you want to go vegetarian. Olive oil is a great substitute.
I have been a spinach lover all my life, and love dishes that can be served for any meal. I really liked how easily this dish comes together, and without the extra fat and calories of a crust. I did drain and press the spinach well to make sure that most of the moisture was removed.
