"This dish is a great vegetable side dish that my Grandma used to make. I used to hate spinach before I tried this dish and now I love it and make it for guests!" — FRKLS4D

3 (10 ounce) packages
chopped frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 1/2 cups
shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
Need to separate the eggs, and whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form, then gently fold them into the spinach and cheese and yolk mixture. THIS will result in a more "souffle-like" texture. As it is, it's just spinach, cheese and eggs cooked together. A little dull.
I read the reviews and many people were upset that this dish doesn't have the appearance of a souffle. I think that "souffle" may have been used simply because it is an egg dish.
I made this dish the first time because I had a huge bag of spinach that was going bad. The dish was amazing and the leftovers went quickly. Nice thing about this is that it keeps well in the fridge for another day.
I liked it so much I made it again within the space of a few weeks. Easy. Simple. Yummy.
Both times I made this we used fresh, chopped spinach and we just added enough until it looked spinachy. I would say it was three large handfuls.
Overall, this tasted good. I was just cooking for 3 people, so I cut the recipe into thirds. When I baked it, it just kind of sat there. It never poofed up like a souffle does. I'll make it again, but make a few changes.
pretty good - the cottage cheese was a bit weird - maybe ricotta would be better.
It's NOT a souffle, more like a block of spinach mixed with cheese. Souffles are supposed to be fluffy, this was a lead weight and nothing but a plateful of cheesy spinach.
