I want to quiche you all over

This quiche is probably one of the easiest and most impressive dishes you can throw together for a last-minute brunch/lunch. You probably already have the ingredients in your house, and all you need is a baking time of 40 minutes! My mom got this recipe from a family friend, and passed it along to me. It's cheesy, filling, flavorful and did I mention, incredibly easy?

Crustless Spinach Quiche

1 TBS vegetable oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1 10 oz package of frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and drained
5 eggs (or eggbeaters)
3/4lb Munster cheese, grated (could use another kind if you prefer, but I think Munster gives it a perfectly creamy and cheesy flavor)
1/4 tsp dried dill
dash of nutmeg
dash of dry mustard

Preheat oven to 350 and spray a round pie pan or quiche pan (10-12 inch).

Heat oil over medium-high heat in a pan and saute the onion and drained spinach. Continue to cook until the onion has softened and the liquid has evaporated from the spinach.

In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs and cheese, and then stir in the onion/spinach mixture and the spices. Pour into your dish, and bake for 40 minutes (until top is browned). This can be made ahead, cooled, and then frozen. Defrost in the fridge and reheat in the oven prior to serving.
