Serves: 12 servings

3 TBSP organic butter (for baking dish)
2 TBSP organic butter for sauteeing veggies)
3 organic eggs
1 cup organic milk
1 cup organic all-purpose flour You can also do 1/2 all purpose and 1/2 whole wheat
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup diced onion
1 1/2 tsp minced galic
1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
2 - 4 cups 2 cups crumbled farmers cheese or feta cheese, or 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 pounds fresh chopped spinach
1/4 - 1/2 fresh lemon juice to taste (optional)

Step by Step Instructions
  1. In a frying pan sautee the onion and fresh spinach with 2 TBSPS of butter until onion is translucent and spinach is cooked down. I squeezed a 1/4 lemon into the mixture for added flavor.while cooking down the mixture. This is optional and you can add more or less to your liking.
  2. Remove from heat and drain any excessive liquid (I didn't have a lot of liquid so I included the little bit of liquid I had when adding to the mixture for extra moisture) and leave to cool.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Melt butter in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish while the oven preheats.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, flour, salt, pepper, baking powder and garlic until well blended.
  5. Add the mushrooms, spinach and cheese, and stir to blend evenly.
  6. Tip the baking dish or use your finger tips to coat with melted butter, then pour the spinach mixture into the pan.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm and golden.
  8. Cut into bars, and serve warm.
