Spinach Quiche Bars

Standard

The original name for this recipe is spinach brownies.  I felt that name didn’t sound appealing since we all associate brownies with chocolate and chocolate and spinach doesn’t really sound that appetizing.  I changed the name to Spinach Quiche Bars because when it’s made it is basically Quiche with out the crust.

This is a fairly simple and inexpensive treat to make and it is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser.  I made them for my birthday party and there wasn’t any left over to have for the next day.  It’s best to make these the night before you intend on serving them since they have to cool completely before you cut them into squares.

Ingredients

Pre-heat oven to 350°

  • 1 10 oz package frozen spinach, defrost in the fridge the day before
  • 1 package shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 cup milk

After defrosting the spinach, squeeze out the moisture as much as you can.

Roughly chop the onion.

Combine spinach, cheese, and onion in a large bowl and mix well.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder and nutmeg.

Mix dry ingredients with the spinach mixture.

Mix melted butter with beaten eggs and milk.

Stir in egg mixture to the rest of the ingredients.

Line a 9x13 baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Pour in spinach mixture and bake for 35 minutes.

Cool completely before cutting into small squares.
