Blarney Stone Appetizer Recipe

Publisher Photo
"A real crowd-pleaser" is how Christine Halandras, from Meeker, Colorado, describes her baked spinach appetizer."Plus, it's so nice to make ahead of time," she adds. "You can quickly reheat it later or even serve it cold." The recipe makes a delicious vegetable entree or side dish, too—just cut the pieces into larger squares.

This was soooo good! We omitted the mushrooms since my husband does not like them.

I chopped the spinach up pretty fine to make it easier to cut the squares and doubled the feta. Everyone loved it at the St. Patrick's day party.
