shredded Cheddar cheese
2 (10 ounce) packages
frozen chopped spinach
I love this recipe; just remember to use medium cheddar or it’s too bland... I also make Greek spinach squares by using feta cheese instead of cheddar and adding ½ tsp of dried dill.
This recipe is ok, but there is another recipe on this site that I prefer. It is called "Spinach Brownies" (strange name but really good recipe!).
These turned out great for my Christmas Eve buffet of finger food. I did add some Tabasco and used less cheese (only because I don't know how to measure a pound of cheese, LOL). Nuke the spinach for a few minutes right in the box, then press it through a colander to drain the water.
I continue to get raves whenever I bring this dish to a party. As is, the recipe is a little too greasy & fatty for my taste so I followed some of the other readers' adivice and made the following changes:
used two eggs
melted one T.butter in the baking dish
used 2c. cheddar and 1/4c. parmesean
Recipe very simple to make and delicious! Must wait for the squares to cool completely before cutting or you're in for a huge mess!
Very tasty and easy, thank you! A couple of small things: I skipped the butter entirely, and used Pam. It worked fine and this recipe does not need more oil in it. We served it with jalapeno ranch dressing as a dip, which was great, and I added granulated garlic and tabasco for spice. Next time I will add even more for kick, but it went over well with the modifications noted.
Very nice flavor & easy to make. I have made these in small batches and large batches (multiplied the recipe by 5 for a wedding reception). Always a favorite whenever I make them-lots of raves.
I think this is a winner even though I wasn't particularly impressed with the flavor of them - everyone else was though! I did add some garlic powder (didn't really seem to help with flavor much) and some Frank's Red Hot (I'm going to add more next time to give it a little more zing), and will probably add minced garlic instead of garlic powder next time. I do agree with previous reviewers that it was a tad too greasy, I'd halve the butter next time. All in all a hit!
