spinach, rinsed and chopped
feta cheese, crumbled
1 (8 ounce) container
chopped fresh dill
ground black pepper
salt to taste
Will definitely make it again, but with some alterations. I used 1/2 the spinach so it stayed good and cheesy, but I should have cut the breadcrumbs too (way too much). Next time I'm adding garlic and taking out the poultry seasoning (made it taste like stuffing to me). Note: tastes great the day you make it, but loses its appeal the next day as leftovers.
I'm sorry but we didn't enjoy this at all. The onions over powered the entire dish. I may make it once more and omit the onions and add 5 eggs to help hold it together.
I followed the advice of a few reviewers (and my own instincts) and made a few changes: I cut the spinach in half and the breadcrumbs in half; I added 2 eggs to make it cuttable; I skipped the dill and poultry seasoning and instead added 1 teaspoon minced garlic; I also substituted 15 ounces of ricotta for the 8 ounces of cottage cheese.
I liked it..but changed it a bit- used mozzarella instead of feta, omitted the dill and poultry seasoning and added four eggs to make it 'cuttable' ...it was delicious! oh, and I used frozen spinach without any problems, I just made sure that I defrosted it and squeezed all of the water out.
This is such a flavorful dish, you wouldn't know you were eating spinach! Rather than going to the extra effort of buying or making a pie crust, we just baked it in a shallow casserole dish. The only change I made, was using ricotta cheese rather than cottage. It's a little on the salty side, so, if watching your salt, cut back a bit on the poultry seasoning. I used the left overs the next day in an omlette and it was amazing! Will definately make again and again and again. This may replace the boring green bean casserole at Thanksgiving!
A nice light dish, good with soup. It's kind of like a warm salad. Oh yeah, and note to self: next time don't use frozen spinach....
Very yummy! Only when I make it, I use about 1/2 of the ammount of bread crumbs the recipe calls for. I prefer to taste the spinach and cheeses most and the crust least. This is a very quick and easy alternative to spanikopita!
So yummy! Made a few changes- saute'd onions in some olive oil, then threw in the spinach and cooked them for about 3 min's. Then I added feta and instead of cottage cheese, I used a dollop of creme fraiche. I let everything cook together in the pan for a couple of minutes, then placed it in the casserole dish. I omitted the butter and just sprinkled breadcrumbs on top and baked it for about 10 min's. Unbelievably tasty!
