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.
