Spinach Casserole


Okay, this is easy. You stir it together, bake it.. If you have any left over, smear it on good sandwich bread with lots of spicy mustard. Honest, it’s great. HARRY

2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 (8-ounce) carton cottage cheese
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup buttermilk
4 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, grated (1 cup)
1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and wrung dry by hand
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon plain bread crumbs, divided
1 teaspoon minced, fresh rosemary
2 dashes freshly grated nutmeg
Salt and freshly ground white pepper to taste
2 tablespoons butter, melted

In a large bowl, combine the eggs and cottage cheese. Add the flour, buttermilk, cheese, spinach, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, rosemary, nutmeg, and pepper, mixing well. Pour into a greased, 1-quart casserole. Top with the remaining 1 tablespoon breadcrumbs and drizzle with butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes.
Makes 2 servings.

    Harry should go to Africa – to change his mood if not anything else :). Thanks for this recipe Emily.

    Hi Lakshmi

    Harry’s about to regain his joi de vivre. He’s just about to discover a raita dressing for cold rice/couscous/pasta salads.

    PS Did you figure out your South Indian quesadillas? My husband is a vegetarian. I think he would like a spicy, vegetable quesadilla.

  2. I adore spinach in dishes. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

    I love spinach, too. I hope you like this casserole. Thanks for commenting.

    I agree with Beth about spinach in recipes and that this recipe is a keeper.

    It sounds wonderful!

    There were so many jokes when I was growing up about kids hating spinach. I can’t understand why anyone would dislike spinach.

    My child eats baby spinach leaves like they were potato chips. I do too. We aren’t even, technically, “vegetarians!” On the subject of kids and spinach, another favorite recipe is the spinach calzone recipe from the Moosewood cookbook, with a filling very similar to this casserole. We’ve almost worn out that page. The recipe makes a wheelbarrow -full, they freeze wonderfully, and at our house we call them “Cow Zones.”

    Maybe Harry could make real easy “Cow Zones” for his freezer, too. Stir up this casserole to use as the filling, and use frozen bread dough (thawed) for the pockets: pinch off pieces, roll out, add dollop of filling, wet edges and fold over to seal. Poke with a fork and bake in a fairly hot oven until golden brown.. (400 degrees? 10-15 minutes? Try it, Harry!)

    Another great recipe from almostgotit! You are a wonder!
