 Ingredients List

  • 2 pounds Swiss chard, washed and spun dry (could easily be substituted with fresh spinach)
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Spanish onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/4 bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped to yield 1/8 cup
  • 3 large eggs
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1 cup bread crumbs


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Bring approx. 8 quarts water to a rolling boil. Add 2 tablespoons salt to the water.

3. Clean and roughly chop the Swiss chard, discarding the rough stems. Add the Swiss chard to the boiling water and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain thoroughly and set aside.

4. In a 12-inch saucepan, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil over a medium flame until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and garlic, and cook until soft and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the Swiss chard and the parsley. Let cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and let cool.

5. In the meantime, break the eggs into a small bowl. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Add 3 tablespoons of Parmigiano and, using a whisk, mix until the ingredients are well-blended. Add the egg mixture to the cooled Swiss chard and toss to combine.

6. Use the remaining olive oil to lightly grease a shallow 9-inch round or oval baking dish. Dust the bottom of the baking dish with 1/2 cup bread crumbs. Carefully place the Swiss chard and egg mixture into the pan. Dust with the remaining Parmigiano and then the remaining 1/2cup bread crumbs.

7. Bake until the top is golden brown, about 40 min. Serve hot or room temperature.

Good things to add to it are sliced mushrooms or Canadian bacon.
