Spinach, Ham and Rice Casserole

This was a new recipe that we tried the other night, and we really liked it. My girls actually ate it too. Surprisingly they like spinach! YEA! This is another recipe that is super easy when you want to hurry and throw something together and let it bake.
the goods:
2 pkgs. (10 oz. each), frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 c. prepared rice
2/3 c. whole milk (i don't use whole milk)
2 large eggs
1 c. Gruyere cheese, grated
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. dry white wine
1/2 lb. ham, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine spinach, rice, milk, eggs, 3/4 c. Gruyere cheese, 1 and 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper.
  2. In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft and beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Add wine and cook until evaporated, about 3 minutes. Add ham and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.

Add ham mixture to the spinach mixture and stir to combine. Transfer to an 8-inch baking dish; top with remaining cheese.

Bake until warmed through and golden brown on top, 25-30 minutes.
