INGREDIENTS

1 (10-oz.) pie crust,
premade or frozen
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard

FILLING:

4 tbsp. butter
9 oz. frozen spinach, thawed and well drained
½ cup red onion, peeled and diced
¼ cup chopped, dry (not oil-packed) sun-dried tomatoes
1 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
½ tsp. dried oregano leaves
¼ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. salt
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
2. Thaw the pie crust according to the package directions. Prepare a 10-inch slightly greased springform pan.
3. Place the crust in the pan, pressing into the bottom and up the sides. Spread the mustard over the bottom of the crust and bake 9–11 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
4. Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F.
5. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
6. Add the spinach, onion and sun-dried tomatoes. Cook and stir for 5 to 7 minutes or until the onion is crisp-tender. Remove from the heat, then add the Italian seasoning, oregano, garlic powder and salt. Mix well.
7. In a large bowl, combine the eggs and cheese. Mix well. Stir in the spinach mixture until well combined.
8. Spoon evenly into the partially baked crust, and bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until golden brown on top.
9. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before removing from the pan and slicing.
