In honor of my little girl turning two today, I thought I would post a recipe of her favorite side dish. You might be surprised to learn that the main ingredient is spinach. However, cheese takes a close second which is the "not so secret" special ingredient. Our entire family loves this recipe so much that I double it. You will need a casserole dish. Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
Toddler's Choice Spinach Bake
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 pkg (10 oz) fresh organic spinach, stems removed, chopped
2 cups grated medium cheddar cheese
1. Place butter in casserole dish and set in warm oven for 2 minutes or until the butter is melted. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, lightly beat eggs, add milk and stir. Mix together flour, baking powder, and nutmeg and then add to egg and milk mixture. Beat until smooth. Add chopped spinach and cheese.
3. Place in prepared casserole and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
