Spinach Feta Casserole
This is a family favorite in Michelle's family. It graces our table for just about every holiday meal. And the best part - it's seriously easy to make, which makes holiday cooking that much easier. We recommend you make it for your upcoming holiday celebrations.
Here's what you need:
2 packages of frozen spinach
2 cups small curd cottage cheese
1 6 oz tub of feta cheese
1/4 cup butter
3 Tbsp flour
Dash of nutmeg
freshly ground black pepper.
Here's what you do:
Thaw your spinach completely and squeeze out as much water as you can. We like to line a strainer with paper towels and let it strain out while it's thawing.
Next, dice your shallot.
Beat the eggs and soften your butter.
Sprinkle in a dash of nutmeg.
Mix everything up in a large mixing bowl.
Spray a 9" x 13" baking dish. Pour your mixed spinach mixture in and spread evenly throughout.
Now, you can make this ahead of time and let sit in the fridge until you're ready to bake it and put it on the table. We mixed ours at home, then traveled to our holiday party and popped it in the oven right before the meal.
