Appetizers Using Spinach
Read More Comments
I have spent this weekend trying out some new recipes for my upcoming holiday get togethers. This one I tweaked here and there to my own liking and I have to say, it came out pretty tasty!
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup half & half
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 16 oz shredded cheese (I used a 6 blend Italian cheese)
- 4 cups fresh or frozen spinach*
* I only had frozen spinach in the house. If using frozen spinach, thaw completely in a strainer and then squeeze all the water out.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using a 13 x 9 inch baking pan, put the whole stick of butter in the pan and pop it in the oven for 5 minutes to melt. Then take it out.
- In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, beat in milk, and all dry ingredients including spices. Beat it well.
- Then stir in the cheese and spinach. Mix very well.
- Pour mixture into the buttered pan, spread evenly over the pan.
- Cook for 25 minutes and it will be light golden brown.
- Remove, let set for a few minutes and cut. You can cut into 24 large serving pieces or 48 appetizer pieces. I suggest the smaller ones. I also suggest putting these on a paper towel for 1 minute to get rid of some of the butter.
- I found these to be very tasty. I let these cool, layered them with plastic wrap, And then double wrapped them with freezer wrap and froze them. I now have appetizers for the holidays.
- To test these, I froze 1 piece and will try it in a week to see how they took to freezing them. I'm sure they will be fine. I make and freeze quiche often.
