  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 onions thinly sliced
  • 3 cups fresh spinach coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup croutons
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded Jarlsberg cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Method

In 10-inch (25 cm) nonstick ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook onions, stirring frequently, until deep golden, 10 to 12 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium. Add spinach; cook, stirring, just until wilted, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with croutons.

Meanwhile, in bowl, beat together eggs, pepper and salt ; pour over spinach mixture. Cover and cook, without stirring, until beginning to set, about 5 minutes.

Uncover and sprinkle with Jarlsberg and Parmesan cheeses; broil until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes.
