I'm confused. Did you mean to mix the first five ingredients (instead of six)? Otherwise, the breadcrumbs are already included in the egg mixture.

This is a 'put your hand on your tummy and rub to show it's yummy' recipe. ;-)

Ingredients:

Directions:

Heat a large pot over high heat until hot. Add the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook for a few seconds until it is golden. Add half of the greens and toss well in the garlic oil with tongs.

Add the remaining greens and toss until the greens wilt evenly. When wilted, season with salt and pepper to taste. Continue cooking over high heat, tossing often, until the excess liquid evaporates.

Transfer greens to a bowl and allow to them cool to room temperature and season to taste with vinegar. Serve at room temperature. The greens are also tasty served cold and will keep well in the refrigerator for a couple of days.

If a recipe calls for frozen spinach with the water squeezed out, I have a great and easy way to do this. No more do you need to waste valuable paper towels and make a mess. I use my potato ricer.

Did you know you can stir in a 10 oz. package of frozen creamed spinach into a box of hamburger helper, especially the cheese flavors and even the kids will eat it? I HATE spinach and it was wonderful!

I love canned spinach heated, drained and splashed with vinegar or drizzled with a teaspoon or so of minced garlic that was sautéed in a tablespoon of olive oil for a minute. You can use it in oh so many recipes but here are some canned spinach recipes that will give you lots of ideas: popeyespinach.com/recipes.php

If you keep in mind that 1 cup cooked and drained is the same as 1 pound fresh you can adjust almost any recipe.

My favorite is:

canned spinach

canned pinto beans

1-2 tbl flour

Salt and pepper to taste, heat spinach in pan with little oil, then add flour to make a roux/gravy, you can add butter if you want, then add can of un-drained beans, roll into flour tortillas. My mom used to make this with fresh spinach, homemade pintos and homemade tortillas.

I like it best by draining off all but about 1 - 2 tblsp. liquid, and heat thoroughly in microwave. Then add 3 - 4 slices of American processed cheese on top, in small pieces. Microwave until chese melts. Stir. If not cheesy to your liking, add more, heat, stir.

How about a simple spinach pie recipe? My father was always making these as he loved them and they are simple and good. Sorry I do not know what a spinach square is.

For the pies you just take storebought refrigerator biscuits (or use dough) put in either fresh or squeezed dry frozen spinach in one of the biscuits you took apart and flattened out and fold over and seal and bake. These can be baked in a regular or even a toaster oven until the biscuit is brown, Add a little olive oil INSIDE f you are using just spinach or if you like anchovies you can add one to each pie but skip the oil, I'm sure you can just about add anything you personally like.

Good luck and have a wonderful weekend
