Just call me Popeye, I love all things spinach even from a young age. My mom never had to fight with me when it came to eating. I would get so excited when she would make Spinach Casserole, even now when I make this great easy dish I never can get it to taste as good as hers.
I had her write down the recipe but somehow mine is just not as good. My children think the same of mine so maybe its a mothers love that adds the extra goodness to it. Who knows, this recipe is a quick easy and good dish to try if you are one of those that love spinach even if it is cooked.
You can use a crock pot or oven. I used the oven because I broke my crock pot just the week before but was hungry for this and found it still taste great when baked in the oven.
As you can see this has few ingredients. I did not make as large of portion as my mom’s recipe states but that is because I was only making this for myself with thoughts of leftovers for my lunch or another dinner.
1 24oz Frozen bag of Spinach (unthaw and drain)
3 large Eggs
1 32oz low-fat small curd Cottage Cheese
2 Tablespoon of real Butter ( cubed)
1/4 Cup of cubed Cheese any flavor your like will be great
1/4 Cup of flour
Salt and Pepper to taste
I mix all ingredients in the buttered pan/crock pot that this casserole is baked in.
If using the oven to bake then use a 13×9 dish. Bake covered for 1 hour at 350. For a crock pot just butter the crockpot, mix ingredients and cook on low for 6-8 hours. This is very easy clean up and so good. I cut the recipe in half and used 2 small eggs but the full recipe will feed a family of four with some leftovers.
