Spinach, Artichoke, and Egg Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups packed fresh spinach
  • 3/4 cups chopped jarred artichoke hearts
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil
  • Dash of crushed red pepper
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
  • Chopped basil, for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8×8 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over high heat. Add the onion and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Stir in the spinach and cook until wilted, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in the chopped artichoke hearts. Add dried oregano, fresh basil, and crushed red pepper. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Pour mixture into prepared pan and spread out evenly. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese and 3 tbsp Parmesan cheese over the mixture.

In a medium bowl, combine eggs and milk. Whisk well. Pour eggs over veggies and cheese. Top with remaining cheese. Sprinkle additional chopped basil over the top.

Bake for 20-30 minutes or until eggs are set and slightly golden around the edges. A knife inserted into the center should come out clean. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Cut into squares and serve warm.

Serves 3-4. From Two Peas and Their Pod
