Tasty Tuesday

Do you have or know a little girl? There's a brand new line of dolls out there, and I'm giving one away with my Hot Locks giveaway!

If you've ever wanted to try them, here's your chance with the probiotics giveaway here.

Odds are really good... quick, go enter and I promise to wait for you.


I had to think really hard about what to post this week. We were on spring break last week, which meant the wee ones and I were running around most of last week. I did a lot of fresh, quick cooking, and many things we made, I've already posted.

Then I had my brilliant idea (ok, so brilliant might be stretching it just a bit). This is one of the super easy dishes that sounds much harder than it is. And it looks fancy, so people think you put a lot of work into it - the perfect kind of recipe!

Oh, wait. Is there a holiday weekend coming up that typically involves a lot of cooking of foods where you want people to think you've been slaving over a hot stove? Why yes, I do believe there is. Perfect again.

Spinach Souffle

1/2 c fresh grated Parmeasan cheese
2 10oz boxes chopped spinach, thawed
3 T butter
3 T flour
1/2 c finely chopped onion
1 c cream
1/2 c spinach juice (reserved from when draining the frozen spinach)
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/2 t nutmeg, fresh grated
1 1/2 c mix of cheddar and mozzarella cheeses
4 eggs

Grease a medium to large baking bowl (a la my ceramic souffle dish). Use the fresh grated cheese to line the greased bowl like you'd flour a cake pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cook and drain the spinach, saving the juice. Melt the butter into a saucepan, and saute the onions in the butter. Add the flour, and stir while cooking for 2-3 minutes.

Add the spinach and onion mixture to a large bowl and gently stir.

In a separate bowl, beat the four eggs.

Add the cream, spinach juice, salt, pepper, nutmeg, cheeses, and eggs to the large bowl and fold to combine.

Place the mixture into a baking dish. Place the baking dish into a pan of water. Cook for 40 minutes, checking carefully after 30 minutes.

Enjoy this and more with Blessed with Grace and Tempt My Tummy Tuesday.

Honestly? I have never made a souffle but I should and now I have a recipe to try. Meatless too!! I love it :) Thanks for linking up this week, nice to have you along.

This sounds like a winning dish for my gang! I think I may have to add it to my Easter menu. Thanks!

Sherry March 30, 2010 at 8:39 AM  

Oh, yum! I love spinach. This sounds delish!

Pat March 30, 2010 at 9:36 AM  

I have a similar recipe, and it's always a huge hit! You're right---it looks like it takes a lot of work, but it's actually pretty easy and yummy, too.

Sounds wonderful!!

Brenda March 30, 2010 at 1:26 PM  

This does sound wonderful

Jaz @ Odd Mom March 30, 2010 at 5:30 PM  

Oh, this looks terrific! I used to get a spinach souffle from Stouffer's that I loved - I wonder if this is similar. I can't wait to try it. Thanks!

Laura - You've never made a souffle really? That surprises me; they're really easy. And now I have a taste for my cheese souffle with my yummy side salad. Hmmmm.

Kristen - I'm debating bringing it to the Easter dinner where I was told to bring "nothing." And now I'm hungry again!

Sherry - So do I. And even Mister Man likes it when it's cut up a bit - mmmm!

Pat - Those are absolutely my favorite recipes. I look like a hero for doing something huge and really it wasn't bad at all ;) Is that wrong of me?

Together We Save - It is. Or at least *I* think it is!

Brenda - Yep, and somewhat sorta relatively healthy, too. Sorta.

Jaz - I haven't had the Stouffer's one before, but hey... it's worth a try, no?

That's about all I've got. You've rendered me speechless.

Alexis AKA MOM March 31, 2010 at 2:25 PM  

Yikes I've always wanted to try one but really no one is quite or light footed around here :)

Sounds delish!

Always looking for a new spinach recipe. Thanks Michelle!

Michelle April 7, 2010 at 10:09 PM  

MrsJenB - It's awfully yummy, but ... speechless is possibly a bit much :)

Alexis - You don't have to be quiet or lightfooted with souffles. They're not nearly as delicate as people make them out to be.

Kelly - It's a good one. I hope you enjoy it :)
