  • INGREDIENTS
  • For the filling:
  • 4 cups celery root, peeled and shredded
  • 4 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • -
  • For the filling:
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup light cream
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach (thawed and squeezed of any liquid)
  • 2 cups ham, chopped
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • INSTRUCTIONS
  • For the crust:
  • Combine the crust ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mix well. Press mixture firmly and evenly into a 9 x 9 or equivalent (I used 8 x 11) oven proof pan, going up the sides at least 2 inches.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
  • Remove and reduce oven heat to 350 degrees.
  • For the filling:
  • Beat the eggs in a large bowl and add the cream, almond milk, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
  • Stir in the spinach.
  • Spread the ham and cheese evenly over the par-baked crust in the bottom of the pan.
  • Gently pour the egg mixture over the ham and cheese.
  • Bake the casserole in the 350 degree (F) oven for 60 minutes or until the middle is set and doesn’t jiggle when shaken.
  • Note: If your edges are getting too brown, cover the casserole lightly with foil in the last 15 minutes of baking.
  • Cool for 10 minutes before cutting.
