Spinach-Cheese Bake

Spinach Cheese Bake Ready to Eat

 

Hi, Everyone – me, again. We’ve been invited to a Linky Party this week, showing the Best Thing We Ate last week. Our Hostess is Justa, over at Just a Frugal Foodie, so we’re bringing Spinach Cheese Bake for the party.  Add this to the menu, and let’s start partying!

Spinach is one of our favorite items to eat – in case you haven’t noticed! So this Spinach- Cheese Bake is right up our alley. (Just click on the link for the recipe).

This is a super easy recipe that comes together in about 10 minutes. Typically all of the ingredients are kitchen staples, so that’s sure helpful for those “in a hurry” meals that you  want to keep healthy and homemade. We serve it for breakfast with a muffin or toast, lunch with a salad, or light dinner with a fruit salad.

Another major plus is that this freezes really well. Simply cut into squares and put several in a freezer bag to enjoy later.

Weigh/Measure the Grated Cheese

Even though the recipe calls for reduced fat cheddar, we use regular “fat” cheddar – just less of it. To me, the flavor of the low-fat cheese is just not enough in this recipe. Also, we substitute Monterey Jack Cheese with Jalapenos for a little extra kick.

Place the Spinach in the Baking Dish

 (We use fresh, organic spinach in the giant sized plastic “box” from Costco.)

Let's Dive In!

Hope you enjoy and this becomes one of your “Go To” recipes.

    My Aunt was a dietician and came up with a recipe very similar to our post. My mom then modified it. My wife, the Baby Lady, modified it further. It really is good and you cannot tell it’s low fat cheese. My kids ate this and loved it.

    Spinach is not one of my favorites but this might change my mind! I like the sound of Dijon mustard and nutmeg, I’ll have to try it, thanks for posting!

  10. This sounds wonderful! I usually just saute spinach with garlic or lemon pepper. I love that you can freeze this for later as well!
