2 – 2 ½ slices of sourdough bread
1 T butter
Soften butter and prepare dish. Make breadcrumbs and pat in to the dish as crust.
½ large leek, or
2 large shallots, or
1 medium onion
4 – 6 C greens – use chard, broccoli, spinach, collards…
1 C Cream
1 C Milk
8 oz Cheese (quattro formagio is nice)
Salt and pepper
Sweat onion in butter, add greens and let wilt. Whisk up the egg, cream and milk. Sprinkle with cheese, spread with veggies, and pour in the cream mixture.
If you put the cheese on top, it browns and makes a little crust…that’s nice too! The sky is the limit with combinations. Here are a few on my list:
Use goat cheese and gruyere and grate some fresh nutmeg over.
Use green chilies, pepper jack, cilantro and a little fresh cumin.
Bake at 350˚ – 400˚ for about 25 minutes, or until set.
