My sister brought this recipe with her when she was visiting from California. We served it at a family get-together and everyone just loved it. We're often asked to bring it to potlucks. —Marcia Tiernan, Madrid, New York
"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.
Sweet, smoky, tangy, fresh…the flavors in this distinctive appetizer are sure to perk up taste buds for dinner. I sprinkle the warm squares with basil and add a dollop or two of a mascarpone cheese topping. —Merry Graham, Newhall, California
