Egg and cheese infiltrate the spinach in this creamy dish, it's a wonderful dish to serve at a holiday or brunch buffet, or it makes a nice weeknight dinner, you can substiture frozen chopped spinach in place of the fresh if desired. The cayenne is optional, add in for some heat. For a lower fat recipe use low-fat milk and mozzarella cheese and reduce the butter amount.

Delicious!! I used 5 oz. fresh baby spinach and a 10oz. box frozen chopped spinach mixed together. Didn't have any onion or paprika, left out the cayenne. The nutmeg added a very nice flavor! We really enjoyed this dish.

I wanted to give this a three, my hubby wanted a five, so we settled on four. This was very tasty, but just too greasy/salty for me. I'll definitely make this again, but this time I'm only going to use a 1/4 cup of butter and no seasoning salt. Still, I don't think my husband will leave me alone until I make this again! Thanks for posting.
