Number of Servings: 6


    1/2 pound of Yukon Gold potatoes peeled & shreddred
    31/4 teaspoons of olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon of salt
    1/2 teaspoon of pepper
    1 onion, diced
    8 ounces of white mushrooms,sliced
    5 ounce bag of baby spinach
    3 large eggs
    1 cup of skim milk


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
Lightly grease a 9-inch glass or ceramic pie dish with 1/4 teaspoon oil. Toss potatoes with 1 teaspoon oil and1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Press into an even layer in pie dish, up the sides like a crust. Bake until golden brown at the edges and dry, about 20 minutes. Let cool.

Lower the oven to 325 degrees. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large skillet, preferably nonstick, over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened and golden, about 5 minutes. Add remaining teaspoon oil and mushrooms and cook, stirring, until mushrooms release their liquid and most of the liquid evaporates, about 8 minutes. Add spinach and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper, and cook, stirring, just until spinach wilts, about 30 seconds. Let cool slightly.

Whisk together eggs, milk and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Spread the mushroom mixture in an even layer in the pie dish, and top with an even layer of the cheese. Carefully pour in egg mixture. Bake until firm around the edges but still wobbly in the center, about 20 minutes. Let cool, and serve warm or at room temperature.
