Ingredients

  • 1 small onion
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 6 cup spinach
  • 12 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 12 slice cheddar cheese
  • 12 regular English muffin, wheat

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350, and line a 9 x 13 baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Finely chop the onion, and saute over medium heat in a large frying pan until tender and starting to brown, 7-10 minutes.
