“They look like brownies, but they're not sweet! Here's a wonderful way to have spinach. This is a treat my girls love to eat. Two 10 ounce packages frozen spinach, cooked, may be substituted for fresh.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Place spinach in a medium saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Lower heat to simmer and cook until spinach is limp, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix flour, salt and baking powder. Stir in eggs, milk and butter. Mix in spinach, onion and mozzarella cheese.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool before serving.

I don't know about anyone else, but this recipe screamed "ADD BACON!" at me. So I did. I cooked and crumbled about 1/2 a pound of bacon and added it along with the spinach and cheese and onion. I cooked the onion first as a personal preference, I don't care for the sharpness of uncooked onion. I think this is amazingly delicious! There was a lot of butter sizzling on the top of the batter and around the edges as it cooked and the top looks a little greasy after it is done, so the butter could probably be reduced. The texture is light, almost quiche-like, but not too eggy. Very hard to describe, it tastes delicious though! Make *SURE* you do not undercook this, if you do it will turn out unappetizingly soggy. Good warm or at room temperature. The recipe doesn't say anything about draining the spinach after it is cooked, but I assumed it should be so I squeezed the cooked spinach till no more liquid ran out (do the same with thawed if you use frozen spinach).

Edit: I don't know why I ever stinted this recipe that 5th star. I think I use it more often than any recipe I've found on this site. It would get five stars with the following tweaks: Two bags of spinach, cooked in the microwave & drained. Use half the butter. Saute the onion. Add garlic and Italian Seasoning. Use mixed Italian cheese and put parmesan on the top. Bacon was a good addition, but not essential. I think this will be great for potlucks and "grab & go" breakfasts. It was hard to stop eating them! I like the name, because I probably wouldn't have noticed the recipe otherwise, and it's a real keeper!

Great appetizer! I took this to a holiday potluck last week and it was a hit, couldn't find any leftovers! I did made the following changes to the original recipe, however, based on previous user reviews and whatever cooking sense I may have! Direction changes: a) I sautéed the one chopped onion (about 8.5 oz) along with some fresh minced garlic in butter, until onion was translucent, before adding to the “brownie batter” b) I used frozen spinach which I just cooked according to the package directions in the microwave (instead of watching a pot and dirtying another pan to prep spinach) c) I added in chopped roasted red peppers for a kick, and to add some red to the green since this was for a holiday gathering Ingredient changes: a) Instead of a half cup of butter, I used 2tbsp in which to sauté the onions and chopped garlic, and an additional 2.5 tbsp of butter when making the batter -- the remaining half tbsp of butter greased the pan b) added 2 tsp fresh minced garlic as mentioned above c) added 1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper d) replaced 8 oz mozzarella cheese with 4 oz mozzarella cheese plus 4 oz Mexican cheese blend (Monterey jack, QQ, Asadero blend) e) Added roasted red peppers (one, 2.5 oz piece) as mentioned above
