Spinach Bread - recipe from 1983 cookbook
1/4 cup butter or margarine, cut into chunks
1 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup milk
2 cups Monterey Jack or Muenster cheese, grated
1 pkg (10 oz.) spinach, thawed, chopped and drained
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place butter in a 9 x 13 x 2 baking dish. Place in oven while it preheats allowing it to melt. In a large bowl combine flour, salt, baking powder, eggs, milk, cheese and spinach. Pour and evenly spread over melted butter. Bake 30-35 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before cutting into squares.
Comment: I found this recipe in a cookbook copyright 1983. The recipe was so simple that I had to give it a try. WHOW! This is not only easy but it's also delicious. It's a recipe that I will be making again and it's also one that I'm going to play with. I bet it would be good with squash or broccoli or cauliflower. Can't wait to try. I will tell you the one problem I've found with this dish... if you taste it while hot you'll have a hard time walking away from it even if you're not a spinach lover.
