Spinach Casserole | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book

Updated on March 11, 2011

This is a versatile Spinach Casserole recipe pulled from The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book. The base recipe is a fundamental one that works for any leafy vegetable like collard greens or cabbage so the variations are endless; I will give you a couple of those as well at the bottom of the page. Do Enjoy…

10 oz of Chopped Spinach

3 Eggs, Beaten

6 tbsp All–Purpose Flour

1 lb (2 Cups) Cottage Cheese

2 Cups (8 oz) grated Cheddar Cheese

½ tsp Salt

¼ tsp Onion Powder

Pre Heat Oven to 325 Deg

  1. Prepare a greased 2qt Casserole Dish, set aside
  2. In a mixing bowl beat the eggs and flour until smooth mix in the spinach, cottage cheese, then grated cheese and spices.
  3. Turn in to the prepared dish; bake for 1 hour. Let stand a few minutes before serving.

Yield 6 Servings

Hmrjmr 1 Variations

Variations to this are endless and are really only limited by your taste and imagination. I like to add mushrooms, and parmesan cheese and change out the cottage cheese with Ricotta, when I do I beat the Ricotta in with eggs and flour before I add the other ingredients. Then I add ¼ tsp Oregano, or a general Italian Spice.

When I use cabbage I like to serve this with Kielbasa, and I brown ¼ lb first and add to the mix for texture and taste. Bacon Bits work well too. I also add 2 tbsp butter, and a bit of black pepper. With fresh cabbage (preferred) I cook it covered for the first 45 mins.

For a Holiday Red and Green you can add a can of Stewed Tomatoes, or 4 oz of Pimentos. Black Olives also give a great taste evolution as well.

      Sounds wonderful, will have to make this one. I make a casserole mixing spinach and yellow squash much the same way. Try mixing the two, I think you will enjoy it.

      HOWDY BIG JOHN - It is easy to see that your spinach recipe is a good one. If I can find my only copy I will post a hub or two from a number of "Swiss chard" recipes and their accompanying stories from a recipe booklet I put together some years ago. Now where did I stash taht booklet??? Gus

      Great recipe, I’ll need to give it a try.

      I assume the oven temp is 325 °F, you know us guys across the pond will need to covert that to Celsius.

      325°F ~ 163°C

      I'm strong to the finish 'cause I eats me spinach!
