  • 1/3 pound bacon, cooked and chopped, (150 g)
  • 16 ounce bag frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry, (453.5 g)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 ounces onion, thinly sliced or minced, (about 1/4 of a medium onion) (56.5 g)
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream (177.4 ml)
  • 8 ounces Swiss or cheddar cheese, grated (226.7 g)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (optional)


  • Cook the bacon until crisp and chop. I do a whole pound in the oven and only use 1/3 for the recipe.
  • Grease a pie plate or 8x8 glass dish. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Thaw the spinach and squeeze dry. Slice the onion very thinly into half rounds or mince. Grate the cheese.
  • Put all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer until totally combined. Pour into the prepared pan and spread with a rubber spatula. Place into the middle of the oven and cook for 40 minutes.
  • Serve warm. Refrigerate up to 1 week or freeze up to 3 months.
  • Serves 6 at 4 net carbs per person.
