My Absolute Favorite Spinach Recipe!

Spinach Casserole Recipe

I’ve always loved spinach recipes and this recipe for Spinach Casserole is my all-time favorite. Originally, it came from my mother-in-law and I’ve been making it forever. I like it warm or cold, as a side dish or even for breakfast. It’s easy to make, it’s delicious warm or cold, and it’s low carb.

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees


1 container of cottage cheese (16 oz)

4 oz of shredded  cheddar cheese – I always add more.

1 package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained (12 oz)

3 eggs

1/2 stick butter cut into pieces

The original recipe doesn’t call for mushrooms, but I had some fresh ones on-hand and didn’t want them to go to waste so I threw in a big handful and loved the result. So mushrooms are definitely an optional but yummy addition. Up to you!

In a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients.

Don’t scramble the eggs.

It looks like a lot of butter and you could try to make it with less, although I haven’t, so I don’t know how it will turn out.

Mix and pour into a greased casserole dish.

Bake at 375 for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until done. I like my casserole browner on top and my husband and I always argue about it. I cook it how I like since he doesn’t usually eat it. Enjoy!

    I love spinach but no one else in my family will eat it. I used to make something similar but with noodles added to it.

  2. I didn’t realize that this is Grammy’s recipe! I bought the ingredients for this last time I went shopping. I need to check the date on my cottage cheese, but I think I will make some this weekend. And I will be the only one eating it, and that’s ok =) I love this stuff!
