Spinach Cheese Bake Recipe – 113 Calories!April 21, 2016
This Spinach Cheese Bake Recipe is a beautiful way to eat your veggies! Moist, full of flavor and good for your carb intake. This will make you and your family a great side dish or a vegetarian meal all on its own.
I’ve added cooked, chopped turkey bacon to this recipe before also, and any variety of cheese I happen to have on hand makes the best, lol. For a brunch, lunch, or light dinner it is perfect and also served with a fresh fruit salad and whole wheat English muffins for the family.
