Spinach Cheese Squares

This spinach recipe has a little 'bite' to it when you use pepper jack and cayenne - which I always do! If you like spinach, you should love this recipe. Either way, with a kick or mild, this recipe suits varied tastes.

Ingredients

4 Tbsp
butter or margarine
3
eggs
1 c
all purpose flour
1 c
milk
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
baking powder
1 lb
pepper jack or montery jack or cheddar - shredded - pre-shredded works just fine
20 oz
frozen spinach - chopped - defrosted - well drained
1/4 tsp
cayenne - can be left out, depending on your taste

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350. In 9 x 13" pan, melt butter while preheating oven, then remove from oven. Squeeze excess water out of spinach with your hands.
2In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, add flour, milk, salt, baking powder & spinach. Mix well. (You can also do this in your food processor.)
3Pour into baking pan and bake for 40 minutes. Cool 45 minutes to set. Cut into bite sized squares for appetizer. As a side dish, cut into 20 larger squares.
4Just a tip: when done, the center of this dish is still shiny and wet looking. IT WILL SET as it cools.
