Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz
These make wonderful finger food at a get together, for a nice presentation place each warm square in a paper muffin liner and you may make them up well in advance and heat/crisp in the oven just before serving--- make as spicy as desired by adjusting the cayenne pepper, the butter is melted in the baking dish firstly, do not add to the mixture, prep time does not include cooking the spinach firstly and servings is only estimated it will depend on the size you cut the squares --- warning these are extremely addictive, you will love these!

Made for KK's Top 25 Chefs Picks Event. As with all of Kitz recipe this is no exception, easy and delicious. I received alot of raves with this little appetizer served at my little New Years Eve Get Together, and the recipe was shared with the guests per their requests. Thank You Kitz for another super wonderful and delicous recipe.

- Generously grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl whisk the eggs until frothy.
- Add in milk, flour, garlic powder salt, pepper, cayenne, baking powder and 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese whisking vigorously until well blended (can use an electric mixer if desired).

- Place the butter in the baking pan then place in the oven to melt (about 10-12 minutes).
- Transfer/spread the mixture into the hot baking pan over the butter.
- Sprinkle the top with 1/3 cup or more parmesan cheese.

- Cool slightly then cut into small squares removing each square using a spatula (these will slice easier when cooled they may be rewarmed again when ready to serve).
