2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon rosemary
6 -- eggs
1 cup milk

1/2 cup (2-ounces) grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Thaw the spinach and squeeze dry.  Saute the onion in the hot olive oil in a skillet until soft.  Add the garlic and rosemary and saute until the garlic is golden brown.  Beat the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.  Stir in the spinach, onion mixture, Monterey Jack cheese and bread.  Let stand until the bread soaks up the liquid.  Pour into a 9×13-inch ceramic or glass baking dish.  Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.  Bake at 375F for 20 to 25 minutes or until brown, puffy and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
