Greens and Goat Cheese!

Sometimes you find random things in the fridge and it's fun to figure out how to make it into dinner. So, I had some nice goat cheese, a bunch of kale and some spinach and I thought about trying to make some sort of crustless egg "thing"--I guess a quiche of sorts? The final product was pretty dang good and the ingredients could be switched around quite easily depending on what you have lurking in your fridge.

6 oz. goat cheese
2 oz mozzarella shredded
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
2 cups half and half
1 bunch of kale, stems removed and leaves chopped
1 large handful of spinach
5 oz of deli ham chopped (not needed but I had some that needed to be used in the fridge)
5 green onions sliced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
oregano, dill, salt and pepper, dried red peppers

Need 10 inch pie plate

Preheat oven 350

In a large lidded skillet, heat some olive oil and put in the greens to wilt--(putting lid on pan can help them steam)--when the greens are wilted add the onions, and garlic and the spices-like a teaspoon of each. Stir and let that mixture cool.

Put eggs, yolks and half and half in bowl and whisk together.

To assemble, spray pie plate with Pam or whatever, put in the greens mixture (if greens mixture seems a bit wet, drain well) Next, sprinkle on ham (if using) then crumble on the goat cheese and mozzarella and lastly pour the egg mixture over all.

Bake 50 minutes.

Let cool at least 20 minutes as it will cut better.

I served with a green salad.
