  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch pie pan or cast iron skillet with oil spray.
  • Squeeze excess moisture from spinach and place in prepared pie pan.
  • In a bowl, whisk eggs and milk together. Add mustard, thyme, salt, pepper, and nutmeg and whisk well. Pour the egg mixture over the spinach. Top with cheddar.
