Cheesy Spinach
  • Mix:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup brown rice, cooked
  • 1 ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Mix separately:
  • 1 large bunch spinach, chopped and steamed
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a pinch of cayenne
  1. Spread the ingredients from the first mixture in the bottom of a greased casserole (I use a 9x9 pan). Spread the spinach mixture over the rice. Bake at 350 degrees until firm, 45-60 minutes.
I have been making this recipe regularly for nearly 20 years. I usually make this with kale or chard instead of spinach, but beet greens are my very favorite green to use in this recipe! Very flexible recipe, I usually toss in a couple extra eggs, this is supposed to serve 10-12 but my kids and I can easily polish off a whole pan of this in one sitting. Sometimes I bake this in a larger pan to get a thinner more throughly cooked casserole for "on the go" meals, it is great for running between kid activities or for eating out in the field while driving a tractor.
