Spinach Squares

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!

    A definite keeper! A real hit at a recent potluck, & my husband was skeptical watching me make it, but he's a fan after he tried one.

    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!
