Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake

Submitted by: EXENEC

Introduction

This is a recipe from Kalyn's Kitchen. I needed a quick breakfast I could batch cook, refrigerate or freeze, and pop in the microwave at work. This is great (as are all the recipes from her site that I've tried). It's very adaptable: I've tried different vegetables, cheeses and herbs/spices. I increased the recipe by 50% as I didn't have the right kind of baking dish: her recipe calls for an 8.5x12 glass dish and 6-8 eggs, 35 minutes at 375 degrees. I used 2 8x8 aluminum pans so adjusted heat and cooking time (30 minutes at 350 deg). This is a recipe from Kalyn's Kitchen.

Ingredients

    12 eggs, beaten
    8 cups baby spinach
    2 tsp olive oil
    1/2 c. chopped scallions
    2 cups part skim mozzarella cheese

    Seasonings (herbs, spices) are up to you. Kalyn recommends Spike seasoning but I can't find it. I usually add pinches of salt, pepper, oregano, garlic and onion powder. Dill, cilantro, parsley, etc. are great garnishes after cooked.

Tips

These refrigerate and rewarm in microwave very well (no more than 45 seconds as they can become rubbery).Try with salsa or hot sauce, sprinkled with dill or chives and some light sour cream, or as a breakfast sandwich with toast or an English muffin. I love them with a little sriracha and ketchup!
