#SundaySupper Popeye’s Breakfast

July 21, 2013

I don’t know about you but I LOVE breakfast for dinner. There’s just something special about having traditional breakfast fare after the sun goes down…whether it’s a cold bowl of cereal or a tasty quiche like the one listed below.

My mom has been making this recipe on Christmas morning as long as I can remember.  However, it’s so delicious, I would eat at any time of day.  The recipe is from a 1980’s issue of Southern Living, but it’s one of those classics that I’ll be making forever.

You can, of course, change up the recipe any way you like.  I added mushrooms in this version, but crumbled bacon or chopped ham is also tasty.  Just don’t swap out the Muenster cheese, it really makes this dish.

Crustless Spinach Quiche   

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (10 ounce) package, frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • Handful of button mushrooms, sliced
  • 5  eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups shredded Muenster cheese
  • s&p to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degree.  Heat oil in pan and sauté onions about five minutes before adding the spinach and mushrooms. Cook until all excess moisture has evaporated.

In a large bowl, mix eggs, cheese, salt and pepper.  Add spinach/onion/shroom mixture then pour into  greased pie pan.  Bake 30 minutes and cool for ten before serving.

My favorite sides to go along with this cheesy goodness are Logan Turnpike Grits (available at Whole Foods or the DeKalb Farmer’s Market if you’re in the Atlanta area) and Fresh Fruit.

What is your favorite breakfast meal to have at night?
