Parmesan spinach bread is delicious to eat plain, or as the base for a sandwich. It is superb topped with leftover roasted chicken, cheddar cheese, and homemade mayonnaise (use a toaster oven to melt the cheese on top of the chicken). Or try it with bacon and homemade ranch dressing.
Parmesan Spinach Bread
1/2 cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained well
6 eggs, preferably from pastured hens
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced or pressed
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp celtic sea salt
pinch freshly ground pepper
2Tb butter, at room temperature
- With the exception of the butter, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Use a fork to beat all ingredients together until well-combined.
- Grease a glass pie plate or 8X8 glass dish with 2 Tb butter. This will make a nice thick layer of butter that will melt into the egg mixture.
- Pour egg mixture into greased dish and bake at 350 degrees F until set. This will take about 15-20 minutes if you start with a preheated oven, or 20-25 minutes starting with a cold oven.
- Cool slightly and serve.
