Cheesy Spinach Bites

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!!! Mine was one full of BBQ's, good times, great food & lots of rain. But that didn't stop me. Friends were over on Saturday, family over on Sunday. These were made as an appetizer out of one of my fav recipe sources, A Taste of Home. I just can't seem to have a get together without an appie so here's a taste from my home. Everyone loved 'em. So easy to make too!!!!!

• 2 tblsp butter, melted, divided
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 3/4 tsp salt
• 1/2 tsp dried oregano
• 1/4 tsp dried basil
• 1/4 tsp dried thyme
• 1/4 tsp pepper
• 3 eggs
• 1 cup milk
• 2 pkg (10 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed & squeezed dry
• 2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
• 2 cups (8 oz) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
• 1 cup chopped onion
• Sliced pimientos, optional

Brush the bottom & sides of a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish with 1 tblsp butter; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, seasonings, eggs, milk & remaining butter. Stir in the spinach, cheeses & onion. Spread in prepared pan.

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean & edges are lightly browned. Cut into squares. Garnish with pimientos if desired.

I make spinach balls that everyone always loves, but I think I'll have to try this one. It looks really good. Made your orzo w/ roasted veggies and it was a hit! I really liked the feta in it! Hope you had a great weekend--sorry it rained, boo-hoo. Have a nice night!

Quichy huh? I do love new words.

Speaking of love, I love your new top of the blog picture thingy with the grapes. I have a thing for grapes. I live a couple of miles from about 20 wineries and we've even started growing our own in the back yard.

Speaking of backyards, I'm really bad about picking up after my dog. But who wanted the dog? My husband and kids. Who begged for the dog? My husband and kids. Who finally gave in? Me. Who feeds him? Me. Who baths him? Me. Who does the dog love most? Me.

Speaking of loving me the most.....
