Easy Spinach Feta Bake

Easy Spinach Feta Bake
This is a simple, delicious dish to bake for a Brunch, Luncheon or as a side dish for Dinner. Serve it, and you might just find that "picky eater" devouring serving after serving of Spinach and asking for more : )
It has happened in our family!

This was inspired by the "Impossible Pies" and "Crustless Quiches" of Bisquick. But, since I seldom have Bisquick on hand, I just created an equally simple scratch version, using ingredients that I DO have on hand normally.

This is what you do:

Easy Spinach Feta Bake

Preheat Oven to  400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Grease a Square  (8"x8") or Round Cake Dish.
Thaw and Squeeze Dry
1 (10 or 12 oz )Package Frozen Chopped Spinach
Layer Spinach in Pan
Top with
1 Cup Shredded Mozarella Cheese
1/2 Cup Cubed Feta Cheese
Set Aside

Spinach, Mozzarella & Feta Layered in Pan

3 Eggs
1 1/2 Cups Milk (Dairy or Nondairy - whatever you have)
3/4 teaspoon Salt
Generous Dash Pepper
3/4 Cup Flour
1 teaspoon Oil

Spinach & Feta with Egg & Milk Mixture added - Ready to Bake (or Refrigerate)

(at this point, you can cover with plastic wrap & place in fridge to bake the following morning. - of course, remove the plastic wrap before baking! And you might need to bake it 10 minutes or so extra - since it's chilled)

Bake 40 -45 Minutes, or till deep golden brown on top

Spinach Feta Bake, Fresh from the Oven & Ready to Cut & Serve

Remove from oven and allow to cool 10 minutes before cutting into squares and serving.

This can be served as a Brunch Entree - add a slice of Ham for the Omnivores. Fruit Salad and a Quick Bread or Muffin also go well.

This can also be a Dinner Entree, with Pork Chops or Ham added on the side for Omnivores.

3 Minute LOW FAT Asian Peanut Sauce and 3 Quick Meals

3 Minute Low Fat Asian Peanut Sauce & 3 QUICK Meals!
Nearly two years ago now, I posted my 3 Minute Asian Peanut Sauce & 3 Quick Meals. 

It was quite popular!

But, the traditional Asian Peanut Sauce wasn't something I wanted to indulge in very often myself. The fact that it was made with Peanut Butter as a primary ingredient meant that it was a higher fat recipe - and for the sake of my health, I try not to make high fat foods an every day indulgence.

Well, recently I got up the courage to try the new Low Fat Powdered Peanut Butter on the market (like PB2). It took a little tinkering, but I was able to adjust my recipe to work GREAT with the low-fat powders.

Now, you can have your cake (I mean Asian Peanut Sauce) and eat it, too! Without feeling guilty! : )

As usual, I made two batch size recipes - one for a single diner, and one family-sized batch

Low Fat 3 Minute Asian Peanut Sauce for One
 Stir together with a fork in a small bowl
3 Tablespoons Peanut Butter Powder (like PB2)
2 teaspoons Lime Juice
2 teaspoons Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Sugar
1 Tablespoon Water (or a little less, as you like for texture)
Sriracha to taste

Low Fat Asian Peanut Sauce - Family Sized Batch
 Stir together with a fork in a small bowl
1/2 Cup + 1 Tablespoon Peanut Butter Powder (like PB2)

2 Tablespoons Lime Juice
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoons Sugar
2 to 2 1/2 Tablespoon Water (as you like for texture)
Sriracha to taste (I use about 1/2 teaspoon)

Now, you can use this sauce to make:
Asian Peanut Wraps, 
Asian Peanut Noodles, or 
Asian Rice & Veggies Bowl with Peanut Sauce
