Even people who don't care for spinach can't pass up these satisfying appetizer squares. They're a hit as a deliciously different vegetable side dish as well. —Patricia Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

"These are crowd pleasers! I had been making a similar recipe for years - these are much more flavorful. Everyone loved them at the holiday party I took them to. Only made a couple of minor changes: 1. used a 16 oz bag of chopped spinach 2. placed red bell pepper pieces in a pattern on the top before baking so that each square, when cut, would have a red pepper piece on it. The red pepper added great flavor and they were very festive. Delicious!"

"We enjoy most all recipes that contain spinach, my daughter doesn't eat eat meat or chicken so I relish finding a great veggie dish. I substituted pepper jack for the monterey jack, it gave the dish a zippy flavor while not too hot. Made for good warm up later left overs too!"
