Spinach Thing

spinach-thingSomewhere between a frittata and a quiche, this bake is easy to make, tasty and your kids will love it!

Serves 4


• Olive oil

• 1 onion, diced

• 4 cloves garlic, crushed

• 2 rashers of bacon, diced

• Big bunch of spinach (with stalks removed, well washed and chopped )

• 1 x 200g chunk of feta cheese, diced into 2cm cubes

• 5 eggs

• 1 cup grated low-fat cheddar cheese

• pepper and a pinch of salt

• a dash of dried chilli or paprika (if desired)

• 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese (for sprinkling on top just before you cook it)


1. Preheat oven to 250˚C.

2. Gently fry the onion, garlic and bacon in a little olive oil. When cooked, remove from the frypan and place in a large bowl.

3. Add all the remaining ingredients, except the parmesan, to the bowl, and mix well.

4. Pour mixture into a greased flan, lasagne or baking dish. Sprinkle with parmesan. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes until cooked – the eggs should be set and the top should be nicely brown.

5. It’s delicious, so enjoy with fresh greens.
