This is one of the best things I have ever put in my mouth!! I did not have any edam so I used grated mozzarella and it was great. There was just a little leftover and I must confess that I hid it so I could have it the next day!! It was even great cold right out of the fridge. My family absolutely loved it so I will definitely be making this many times again.
Excellent spinach dish! I made this as written, using goat's milk feta. It was absolutely wonderful. It's cheesy and tasty. Thanx for sharing!
this was absolutely delicious! i loved the flavors of the cheeses and the spinach. i used scallions and gruyere cheese, i didn't have edam. i also grated some romano and added that as well. dd2's bf inhaled his portion! if i keep making great dishes like this one we'll never get rid of him :) i make this often-- p.s. they are now married and exoecting a baby any moment, lol.
Superb! I made this for easter 09 and served it with Brisket in orange burgandy sauce. It complemented the flavors of the meat really well. After tasting how strong the feta was I decided to only use 1/2 cup of it and subtitute the Roquefort cheese with an parm/asiago mix. I couldn't believe how nice the dill tasted in this. It was really easy to make the morning of our party and refridgerate until it as time to bake for dinner. I will definately make this again.
Wow. Okay...I've always wanted to find the "PERFECT" spinach pie and though this one isn't there...it's the closest I've found (thank you Evelyn for directing me to this recipe!) The dill and feta make this taste like a spanakopata. I used cheddar and mozerella though I could also have used parmesean as a replacement (not a fan of blue cheese and have to work with the cheeses here in Israel) I used fresh spinach, wilted just slightly, not even sure if I really needed to do that. Could have used frozen as well. But here is the problem with this one. It didn't puff up at all, and it was a bit watery and gelatenous at the bottom. Not a lot...just a touch. I felt that I REALLY drained the spinach well, so was surprized by this. I also put this in the wrong size dish, and made this too thin. I will likely try it again. Maybe with a bit more breadcrumbs. Maybe with some fresh lemon squeezed on it. I don't know. The taste was good. It kept well in the fridge. It reheated nicely. The texture and presentation just weren't up to par.
Absolutely delicious. I was in a pinch and had to do some major subs. I used twice the amount of feta and added 1/4 cup of parmesan along with the blue cheese. I then discovered that I didn't have any heavy cream, so I replaced that with cream cheese. This was still to die for. I will be making this again soon, but with the required ingredients. Thanks so much for posting. Editted 5-12-2007-Made this again for the 5th or 6th time. Again, fabulous! I've made it with frozen spinach and fresh spinach. I've subbed different cheeses, and used heavy cream, 1/2 & 1/2, or milk. Either way, it's been delicious every time.
I had some leftover fresh spinach that needed to be used, so tried this recipe. Overall, pretty good. I couldn't find roquefort on my quick trip to grocery store, but found edam, so used it and feta. Also used regular yellow onion and dried dill with skim milk. Halved the recipe to fit just the 2 of us. Can't believe I got my husband to eat spinach! Next time would like to try with roquefort for sure! Thanks!
I followed this recipe as written, but chose to use the extra feta rather than the Roquefort. My family really enjoyed it. I think it presents well to serve for a dinner with guests as well. Thanks for sharing.
This is an awesome dish! I served at Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. We love plain spinach in my house but I think this will become a staple. Thanks for posting!
Add me to the lsit of fans! I did a lowfat version with fat free feta, lf half and half and reduced fat cheddar. I actually made this into a bread bowl dip. You can't really 'taste' the blue cheese, but the diminsion it gives the dish is great. I would not shy away from this if your guests were not avid proclaimed blue cheese lovers.
