Spinach, Potato & Egg Casserole

I found this recipe in a grocery store pamphlet and it sounded good. It's been sitting on my desk for weeks waiting to be tried. I almost threw it out a few times, but then I'd stop because I really did want to try it. It was good, but it seemed to be missing something. I think if it had a crust and was more of a quiche instead of a casserole it would have tasted better, but then again it would have had more calories. Oh, and I used Egg Beaters instead of real eggs, so that probably had alot to do with it. It would be a good dish to serve a crowd for a brunch though.

Spinach, Potato and Egg Casserole

1 medium potato
10 oz bag frozen spinach
8-10 button mushrooms
6 eggs (or 1 1/2 cups egg beaters)
2 egg whites
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small yellow onion
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
3 tbsp flour
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350º.
Chop onion and potato into small dice. Mince garlic. Slice mushrooms. Saute the onion, potato, garlic and mushrooms in a skillet with the tablespoon of olive oil until potato is cooked through (about 15 minutes.)

Defrost and drain spinach.

In a large bowl, whip eggs, egg whites, flour, sour cream and cheeses. Add spinach and sauted vegetables. Pour into a 9x13 inch baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake for 40 minutes. Serves 4 large portions at Weight Watchers 6 pts each, or 8 portions for 3 points each.
