Ingredients

  • 1 lb 93% lean ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 oz 50% light sharp cheddar cheese shredded from block
  • 3 oz fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 2 Roma tomatoes chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine ground beef, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and Worcestershire sauce until blended.
  • Press into a lightly oiled pie dish, making sure to cover the bottom and the sides of the dish to form a "crust"
  • Bake for 18 minutes. Drain excess grease out of pan and set aside to cool. (It will shrink a bit but that's ok)
  • Heat olive oil in a saut√© pan over medium heat and cook onions until soft, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Spread cooked onions on top of the beef crust.
  • Add spinach to the pan and cook until just wilted. Spread spinach on top of onions.
  • Top with tomatoes and shredded cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  • Whisk together eggs and egg whites and pour over top.
  • Bake for 25-30 until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
