Recipe Ingredients for Spinach-Gorgonzola Custards

1/2 c. frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 large onions, cut in half and thinly sliced
2 tsp. brown sugar
2/3 c. cheese, Gorgonzola, crumbled
3 large eggs
1 c. half-and-half
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. pepper

Recipe Directions for Spinach-Gorgonzola Custards

  1. Drain spinach well, pressing between paper towels to remove excess moisture; set aside.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add oil and onion, sauté 5 minutes. Stir in sugar, and cook, stirring occasionally, 20 more minutes or until onion is caramel colored. Reserve 1/4 cup onion; spoon remaining onion mixture evenly into 6 lightly greased 6-ounce custard cups; sprinkle with cheese.

  3. Whisk together eggs and next 4 ingredients until blended. Stir in spinach. Spoon evenly over cheese, and place custard cups in a 13- x 9-inch pan. Add hot water to pan to a depth of 1 inch.

  4. Bake at 350° for 30 to 40 minutes or until almost set. Remove cups from pan. Let stand 10 minutes; unmold and top with reserved onion. Garnish, if desired.
