This weekend's menu was all about the grandparents! My father-in-law's favorite retirement past-time is fishing, and he caught beautiful speckled trout on one of his fishing adventures last week. There is nothing like fresh fried fish, especially when my husband is doing the frying!! On Sunday, I baked one of my mom's favorite recipes, a cheesy spinach dish that we have always called "spinach bread." Now, I know what you're thinking: "Will kids actually eat this?" The answer is a resounding "YES!" It is cheesy and oh, so good!
(I doubled this recipe and made a meal out of it, but you could do a single batch and serve it as a side dish.)
1 cup bisquick baking mix
1 onion chopped very fine
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 - 12 oz. carton cottage cheese
1 - 10 oz. frozen chopped spinach - thawed
1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
1 tsp. minced garlic
Season salt to taste (Tony Chachere's is our favorite!)
1. Preheat oven to 375. Grease baking dish.
2. Mix all ingredients and pour into dish.
3. Bake for 35 minutes (55 if you double the batch).
4. Let stand five minutes. Cut into squares.
