Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • 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.
