**The easiest way to chop spinach is to first cut the leaves away from the stalk. Next, stack the leaves one on top of the other and roll them as you would a pancake. Cut the roll down the middle lengthways and slice away. Chop stalks as you normally would.

Using fingers, combine spinach, eggs, cottage cheese, feta, mozzarella and ground nutmeg.
Season with salt and white ground pepper.
