And I forgot to mention it to anybody! Can you believe it? To make it up to you, my favorite Spatulettes, how about some breakfast pie? My mom and I made this together on Christmas morning, inspired by THIS with some lactose-intolerant friendly changes, like nixing the crust and using soy cheese.

Here's what you'll need:

4 yukon potatoes
A Trader Joe's (or similar) bag of baby spinach
About a cup of grated soy cheddar cheese (the brand that Ralphs's sells)
4 scallions cut into tiny slices
11 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil for the skillet
(We didn't use it, but some crispy chopped up bacon in here would be lovely if you're bacon inclined)

Here's what to do:

Boil the potatoes until they're soft but not mashable. Slice them into 1/4 inch rounds.
Steam the spinach and drain.
Oil your skillet (unless yours is perpetually seasoned which, apparently, is a thing. Do you do this?)
Layer the potatoes on the bottom of the skillet until they fit.
Layer the spinach on top of the potatoes.
Add some cheese and scallions.
Add more potatoes if there are still some leftover.
Add more cheese and scallions.
Scramble the eggs in a big bowl, add a little salt and pepper, and pour over the veggies in the skillet.
Add the rest of the cheese and scallions.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes. (Ours took an hour)

Slice it up like a pie, display proudly on your table, and share with people you love.

'til next time Spatulettes! Happy New Year!
