Lo carb directions: I didn't add the flour. It was fine. This was great! My kids and dh loved it and asked for a return performance. LOL When that happens and it is easy to fix the recipe gets five stars. I changed very little. First I didn't thaw the spinach. I mixed all this together with the cold frozen spinach and put it in my crock. I substituted VCO coconut oil for butter to increase the health benefits. I used dried minced onions and I also used full fat cheese, never do low fat here, yuck! I strained the cottage cheese to get the moisture out and rinsed. My crock has temp settings so I did this at 250F for 4-6 hours.
LOVE this recipe! My 9 year old would eat it every day! Very easy, very forgiving (I've used the "wrong" amount of spinach, used fresh, used ricotta instead of cottage cheese, used a pack of onion soup mix instead of fresh... overall just a great recipe, thank you for sharing!
Couldn't find frozen whole leaf spinach. Used fresh. Didn't work well. Used 2 8 oz bags but had very little green in it.
