YUMMY! I thought I had spinach and so had planned to make this, but alas a glance in the freezer revealed that I was all out. SO I substituted half a package of frozen broccoli florets (about 7 ounces) and about ten cherry tomatoes, halved. I sauteed the onions with some minced garlic and then added the broccoli for a couple minutes before putting it in a pie plate. Then I mixed two eggs with 3/4 of a cup of Egg Beaters and maybe 1/4 cup of soy milk, with some salt, pepper, and Mrs. Dash. I couldn't find muenster in a block so I bought it sliced and just cut up the slices. I forgot how much I love muenster - so buttery! I only used 1/2 lb. (8 oz.) Then I topped the whole thing with a sprinkling of parmesan. It was so good!

Thanks for this great recipe!
