Preparation Time: 1 hour, 15 mins, including bake time

  • 7 small red Colorado potatoes
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 T olive oil

Preheat oven to 375°F. Bring water to a boil in large sauce pan. Thinly slice potatoes, add to boiling water and cook 5 minutes; drain and rinse with cool water; drain again. Heat olive oil in medium skillet, add onions and garlic; sauté about 2-3 minutes until just starting to brown. Add spinach, sauté 1 more minute. Remove from heat and drain off liquid. In a medium bowl, mix cheese with egg until well blended.
