1/3 pound bacon, cooked and chopped, ( 226.7 g)
16 ounce bag frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry, (453.5 g)
6 large eggs
2 ounces onion, thinly sliced or minced, (about 1/4 of a medium onion) (56.5 g)
3/4 cup heavy cream (177.4 ml)
8 ounces Swiss or cheddar cheese, grated (226.7 g)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pinch nutmeg
1 teaspoon lemon zest (optional)
Cook the bacon until crisp and chop. I do a whole pound in the oven and only use 1/3 for the recipe.
Grease a pie plate or 8×8 glass dish. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Thaw the spinach and squeeze dry. Slice the onion very thinly into half rounds or mince. Grate the cheese.
Put all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer until totally combined. Pour into the prepared pan and spread with a rubber spatula. Place into the middle of the oven and cook for 40 minutes.
