I served this dish at a church luncheon and I had to laugh when one gentleman said to me, "This is good, and I don't even like broccoli!" I replied, "Sir, it isn't broccoli. It's spinach." He quickly answered, "Oh, I don't like spinach, either, but this is good!"

"When I see some other the other recipes for this has a blue ribbon. It makes me wonder why this recipe does not. This one has the most 5 star ratings. I just made this for breakfast. Just love this! The man I take care of raved over it. It usually takes a bit for him to rave over something. I didn't have either one of these cheeses. Nor did I have enough of any one cheese. So I actually used a combo of 4 cheeses ( Smoked Gouda, Goat, Provolone, and Velveeta.) He doesn't like mushrooms, so I omitted them. Other than that I made it the same. Loved it. I will be making this again."

"This is a pretty good recipe but needed a bit of spice/seasoning for my family. I made it twice, altering ONLY the addition of mushrooms the first time (husband is allergic). It went over "ok" but with a few complaints about seasoning. I made it again altering it a bit. I used fresh spinach, used green chile instead of mushrooms, added salt, pepper and garlic-to taste. I used Monterey Jack cheese but only used about 1/2 to 2/3 the amount. This time, family loved it! When I make it for breakfast, I use cooked bacon and/or sausage!"

"Yummy! Fine without the ham if you want to go vegetarian. Olive oil is a great substitute.
