cheesy spinach bake: Cooking Light

Last night I made this dish from Cooking Light (see my Menu Plan Monday post for the link to the recipe). It turned out a bit like an upside-down quiche. You make it by pouring a bit of melted butter in the baking dish, then lining it with a huge pile of spinach, sprinkling the spinach with cheese, and then pouring something like a spiced pancake batter over the whole thing, and baking it. The batter sinks down to fill all the crevices, and you end up with a cheesy-spinachy-pastry-like thing. Pretty good!

I used eggs instead of egg substitute, and full-fat cheddar cheese, and part-skim mozzarella, so I don't think it quite fit Cooking Light's idea of a low-calorie dish, but we were quite happy with it. Oh, and I used a bit more cheese than they called for. Mmmmm.

peace of Christ to you,

This cracks me up, because I always look for where they took the fat out and add it back in. The only low fat things I like are those that are that way naturally, e.g. fruit, sorbets, salads, things like that.
