  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Place melted butter in 13 x 9-inch baking dish; set aside.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat eggs, stir in milk. Stir in flour and baking powder until well blended. Stir in cheese, spinach and onion. Spoon egg mixture into baking dish.
  • 3
    Bake 35 minutes or until center is set. Cool 30 minutes; cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Serve immediately.

  • I have switched up the cheese many times, with each combination just as good as the original.
  • One particular flavor combination we like just as much as the original is subbing half the cheese with Monterey Jack, giving the Spinach Cheese Squares a slightly creamier taste.
  • I have also used one tablespoon of butter, instead of two, to cut back a bit on the fat, and it’s worked just as well.
