Calling All Spinach Recipes…

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on January 13, 2011

Updated: I added a Mr. Linky…so bloggers, feel free to link up your recipes :)





It seems that I have more spinach on hand that I thought!

I went scavanging (is that a word?) for some chicken in the deep freezer this past weekend…and ended up doing a little reorganizing, while I was at it.

(Nevermind the frostbitten fingers.)

I discovered that I had several other boxes of frozen spinach hiding underneath the baskets that sit at the top of the freezer.  And while it’d be easy to serve it up as a quick and simple side dish…it’d be way more fun to do something else.  I recently made some tasty Spinach Meatballs.  And I’ve got an Italian Wedding Soup on the menu for January. (Yes…we are halfway through the month and I haven’t published my meal plan for January. It’s coming. I think.)

But I want to do something else with it…And I want you to help me by sending your favorite spinach recipes!

Feel free to leave them in the comments or email them. I greatly appreciate it!!!

I like to make my lil version of a quiche with frozen spinach. I used the recipie out of the south beach diet book, then modified it to better suit our tastes. Its basically eggs, whatever veggies &/or meat you want to include. Use a muffin tin, i use aluminum liners w/ this. Mix up desired veggies & meat & then bake on 350 for 20-25 min, or till done w/ a fork or toothpick. Since you’ll be using frozen spinach, just defrost it & then pat it dry w/ paper towels. Here’s the list of what i put in mine, give or take depending on what i have on hand.
Cheddar or pepper jack
green chilis canned
bell peper
salt, pepper (red white & black, garlic)
ham &/ or turkey bacon (or whatever lunch meat/ breakfast meat i have on hand)
black olives
parsley or cilantro
i’ve also done brocolli ( my husband like it this way)
I havent tried it yet w/ it, but i bet zuchinii would be good w/ it too.

just mix it all up in a bowl, then spray you muffin cups w/ non-stick spray
pour till almost full but not too full
then bake:)
I do freeze these & later we take em down as needed. Great to eat w/ salsa :)

I actually haven’t used frozen spinach in my cooking yet – how does it differ from fresh (aside from the fact that it’s colder)?
