Beet green casserole

Ingredients:
1 tbsp butter
4 cloves of garlic (minced)
1/2 lb of beet greens (beets removed)
3 egg yolks
1 cup ricotta or mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
crackers or bread crumbs (Whatever kind of crackers you have around is fine. I used Townhouse crackers.)

Directions:

1. Melt butter in a skillet and add the garlic. Cook for about one minute. Add the beet greens and saute for 5-10 minutes or until the beet greens have cooked down like spinach. Add a little salt and pepper to taste.
2. In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks and add the two kinds of cheeses. Add about a 1/2 tsp of salt and mix well.
3. Combine the greens with the egg mixture and mix well. Place the mixture in a lightly oiled casserole or loaf pan and sprinkle smushed crackers or bread crumbs on the top generously.
4. Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake for 5-10 minutes more.
