In my arsenal of recipes, I came across this recipe that is from my mom’s recipe box. She was always the master of making delicious, quick to prepare recipes, from easy to find ingredients. I am aware of all of the online ship-to-your-house websites that advertise easy to prepare meals in a box. I am sure there are many that use these sites for their weekly meals and I know in certain situations they are a lifesaver of convenience. I even purchased a gift card on one site for a couple expecting twins; I thought they would appreciate a few meals that were easy to prepare and did not require a trip to the store. But, on an every day basis, it is easy to prepare foods just like my mom made, with fresh and easy to find ingredients. Easy Spinach and Cheese Bites are perfect when entertaining, a light lunch or along side a cup of soup.
Easy Spinach and Cheese Bites
- 1 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
- 1 cup grated cheese, mozzarella and cheddar mixed
- 1 egg, beaten
- 4 English muffins
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- garlic salt
- freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook the spinach as directed, drain and dry the spinach. In a medium bowl mix the spinach, cheeses, and egg until well blended. Split the muffins in half, spread each half with butter and sprinkle with garlic salt. Spread spinach mixture on each half, top with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 10 minutes, then put under the broiler to brown and get hot and bubbly (watch carefully). Cut each muffin half into 4 pieces to serve.
