Ever been on a mission to make something ahead of time to keep for the week you can just warm up a piece at a time? Well this was inspired by surfing sites and seeking ideas for fixin early and eating during the week. Hope you enjoy. I took a picture but it looked so "green" with the green pie dish and the spinach I need to use a clear or white pie then retake.

Ingredients

TOOLS FOR THE JOB!

preheat oven to 375
1
9" pie dish or an 8 x 8 square pan
1
medium sized bowl to whisk eggs

INGREDIENTS:

1
tube of sausage i used jimmy deans hot sausage, less grease
6
eggs whisked
1
box thawed chopped spinach squeezed dry
1
4 oz can chopped green chilies
1/2
cup of cubed cheese, i used havarti but sharp cheddar or pepper jack would taste great too!
1
tsp salt
1/2
tsp pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Use the sausage as a crust, press it into the pie dish up the sides try to keep it uniform in thickness.
2
Whisk eggs add salt and pepper
3
Squeeze spinach dry then place in the bottom of the pie pan
4
Add green chilies spreading gently so to keep spinach in place
5
Gently pour eggs over spinach/chilies mixture
6
Gently place cheese around pie more towards the outside it tends to melt into the middle.
7
Bake for 45 to 55 minutes depending on your oven I found it was easier to put on a sheet pan to move around.
8
When the middle is just about set it is ready to take out of the oven, let it cool for 10 minutes before cutting. I use a serrated knife. The crust was right at the stage of very firm and held up well.

Alternative ideas: Jalapenos pickled are usually the best about one whole or 10 sliced then diced, 1/3 cup of onion maybe saute it first, 9 eggs alone, 1/2 cup Canadian bacon or 1/2 crispy bacon use your imagination.
