Yesterday I had that some spinach in the bag that was not looking as good as days ago, I had to think in something quickly.
I looked what I have in my fridge and I decided to stir fry the spinach. I had some cherry tomatoes , Parmesan and provolone cheese from Calabria wine Market that would make a good match. I decided to keep in the fridge some very quick and nutritious breakfast options with low carbohydrates intake.
This is a very easy recipe and good for the Passover that is not that far away. It took me 10 minutes to prep and 25 in the oven and it is easy to keep in the fridge for few days, I warmed up in the oven this morning and these cheese pie muffins tasted as fresh as yesterday night !

5 large eggs
1 cup of 2% milk or goat milk
1 table spoon of grated provolone cheese
1 table spoon of grated Parmesan cheese

6 cherry tomatoes cut in half
3 cups of spinach leaves
1 sliced shallot (a type of onion)
