No oven

My oven just quit working. I doubt it will be fixed for tonight. I planned to make my man's favorite spincah dish as part of dinner tonight. This recipe is similiar to mine-


I was wondering if I should just put all the ingredients in a covered pan at the end. It won't have the same crispy top though. Or would it be better made in the slow cooker? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Cook like a frittata with a covered fry pan over low heat, moving the pan around the flame to cook evenly. If you have a cast iron or aluminum grill plate, dispersing (diffuser) the heat more evenly is a nice trick as to not to burn what you are cooking.

    With regards to the bradcrumbs....do not apply them while setting the spinach and egg.....instead, pan roast/toast them in a fry pan with butter or oil to toast them, much like making pan roasted croutons...this is the only way they will have any crunchy texture.

      Thank you for your suggestions! I don't own a dutch oven but, the microwave might work.

        Try a Dutch oven.

          I'd do it in the microwave and then sprinkle something crunchy on top, like toast or cracker crumbs.
