Mom’s Spinach Bars

When I was a kid, I ate just about everything, that is, except potato soup when Mom cooked it and spinach in any form.  Maybe it is an acquired taste; but anyway, I love it now.  I think its great fresh in a salad; especially wilted salad, baked in a casserole or straight out of the can and heated up.  Fortunately, Bill likes spinach also.  But, of course, not everyone does.  This recipe of Mom’s might make a spinach lover out of those in your family that refuse it. 

Spinach has great color and looks so appealing when it is cooked.  This is a tried and true recipe, quick and easy to prepare.  Just blend the ingredients together, toss it in the oven and then prepare the rest of your meal while it is baking.  Easy enough! 

I have never added any kind of cheese to this recipe but, it would be a great addition.  I like it with a few more mushrooms.  Should you try it, just be sure to squeeze the water out of the spinach well with paper towels.  This is easy, easy and delicious!  I hope you give it a try and it turns you into a spinach lover too!

  1. Pam, just emailed this recipe to my daughter in Chapel Hill. She's a spinach freak like I am, and your recipe appeals to us both!
    Thanks. Love your site! Thanks for stopping by mine, so glad that you did, 'cause I'm really enjoying visiting yours!

  2. Wow! Thank you for all the kind words!

    I'm glad you like the recipe! I have used a whole 10 ounce can of mushrooms, drained well, in it. Like I said, it would be great with any kind of cheese add also.

    I'm so glad to meet spinach freaks like myself. It just proves "great minds think alike!"

    I really love that pup of yours and have always wanted a Corgi. They have character plus!

    Thanks again and I will be returning to your great blog also!

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
