Spinach Brownies


20 oz. frozen chopped spinach
4 tablespoons butter
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 lb. aged cheddar, grated


Thaw spinach and squeeze out as much moisture as possible.
Melt butter in a 9X13 pan.
In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs and add the milk.
Sift flour, salt and baking powder together and add to egg mixture.
Add the cheese and spinach.
Transfer to pan.

(You can refrigerate the “brownies” at to this point for up to 24 hours or freeze for several weeks.)

Bake at 350F for 35 minutes (longer if chilled) or until top is lightly brown.

Cool slightly before cutting into 8 squares (about the size of a bread slice) and then in half into triangles. Place one triangle on the bottom and the second triangle leaning on the first.

Serve with sausage, ham or bacon.

Serves 8

  1. We just served the "brownies" for breakfast this morning. They were a lovely side to our Northwest Eggs Benedict. They are always a hit with our guests. Freezing them for use later also works great AND they have been known to get even teenagers to eat their spinach!

    Thanks Ellen of the Birchwood Inn for sharing this recipe.
