Spinach Cheese Casserole

Updated on July 19, 2012

Getting my children to eat their vegetables has always been somewhat of a struggle. My kids are much better about eating vegetables now that they are getting older. When they were younger I tried different ways to get them to eat different types of veggies, which was always hit and miss.

Finally I decided that I would try my favorite vegetable which has always been Spinach, yeah I know I am weird, because not too many people are fans of this veggie. For me it was easy to win the kids over and get them to enjoy Spinach with a cheesy casserole. After all doesn’t cheese make EVERYTHING taste better?

If you are a fan of Spinach give it a try!


INGREDIENTS:


2 – 10 Ounce Packages of Frozen Spinach Chopped, Thawed and Drained

1 Cup Cottage Cheese

¼ Cup Butter or Margarine Cut into Pieces

1½ Cups Cheddar Cheese Cubed

3 Eggs Beaten

¼ Cup Flour

1 Teaspoon Salt


DIRECTIONS:


Mix ingredients together and pour into either a greased Crock Pot or a Casserole Dish.

Tip: I like to mix the eggs, flour, cottage cheese and butter together first and then add the other ingredients.

For Crock Pot cook on low for several hours (4 – 5) then turn to high for an hour before serving.

For Oven bake at 350 for 1 hour until mixture is hot and bubbly.

For Microwave cook on High for 6 minutes stir, cook an additional 6 minutes and stir. Some microwaves might take an additional 6 minutes so adjust times for your microwave.

      This is one of those dishes that I would make for a bunch - but then quietly go off and eat it all before company comes - you know just tasting and sampling and then just a little more, then look around to see where the rest of it is - and it'll all be gone. It happens.

      This sounds so right - especially on this rainy, cold night here in NYC.

      Thanks a bunch - rated up of course!

      I agree with you. You really have to season your spinach to make it tasty.

      EnLydia - It is very good and it is somewhat like a souffle, but I would say more like a casserole.
