•spinach squares•

My mom used to make these squares for parties, and it was impossible to eat just one. Happy American Independence Day! We've been quiet, but we're still here. xox


2 T butter
3 eggs
1 C milk
1 C flour
1/2 tsp table salt (reduce)
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 10-ounce packages of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained, or the equivalent of broccoli

  • For the record, I think roughly any amount of spinach will do. I inherited a bunch of frozen chopped spinach from a massive freezer clean-out (why does this always happen to me, Amy?), and have been draining it in preparation. I'm about to squash all the moisture out of it, using a colander and my brawn.

1 lb half sharp cheddar, half monterey jack cheese, grated
1/4 chopped onion

Preheat oven to 350, melt butter in huge glass baking pan (9 by 17 inches is what the recipe says, but who has that?). Beat eggs, add milk, flour, salt, baking powder. Mix well. Stir in spinach, cheese, onion. Bake 35 minutes, remove. Let cool 45 minutes. Cut into 90 (ninety!!!) small squares, or larger if serving for a main dish. These things freeze well, and thaw easy for last-minute meals and unexpected guests.
