Ingredients

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 pound cremini mushrooms, halved and thinly sliced

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

10 ounces chopped frozen spinach, thawed in microwave 4 minutes, all liquid squeezed

6 ounces Asiago, shredded (about 2 cups)

1 large egg, beaten

Whole-grain mustard, for serving

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and then the mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are a rich golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the mushrooms to a bowl and cool slightly.

2. Add the spinach, cheese and egg to the mushrooms and stir together to combine; it's nice if there are pockets of cheese in the mixture.

3. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Using a 1/4 cup dry measuring cup as a mold, tightly pack some of the mixture into the cup to make a cake. Tap the cake out of the cup on to the prepared pan. Repeat with the remaining mixture to make 8 cakes. Bake until the cheese is golden, about 12 minutes. Serve hot with whole-grain mustard.
