Ingredients

  • 1 cape seed loaf
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 2 bunches English spinach, trimmed, rinsed
  • 200g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup thickened cream

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a 4cm deep, 16cm x 26cm (base) slab pan.
  2. Cut eight 1.5cm-thick slices from loaf. Thin out each slice with a rolling pin until 5mm thick. Spray both sides with oil.
  3. Line pan with sliced bread, overlapping slightly. Bake for 10 minutes or until Lightly toasted.
  4. Meanwhile, place half the spinach in a microwave-safe dish. Cover. Microwave on HIGH (100%) for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until just wilted. Drain. Repeat with remaining spinach. Squeeze excess moisture from spinach with hands. Roughly chop.
  5. Arrange spinach evenly over bread base. Top with feta and green onion. Beat eggs, cream and salt and pepper together with a fork in a large bowl until well combined. Pour over spinach mixture. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until set. Cut into slices and serve.
