Crustless Spinach Quiche

I had bought a packet of frozen spinach last week, meaning to cook creamed spinach some time this week. When this did not materialise, I decided to do something else with the spinach.

I was too lazy to roll out a crust, and so I decided that this quiche was going to be crustless. To save the trouble of having to cut it up, I decided to bake the quiche mixture in a cupcake tin. I used some aged pecorino cheese in place of gruyere cheese, the typical choice for quiches.

The quiche turned out nicely, though I think it was a tad bit salty, as I forgot that pecorino is saltier than gruyere, and forgot to cut down the salt.
