    JanuaryBride's Note:

    Recipe from Eating Well. States, "If you like spinach-cheese pie, try these simple but elegant-looking little spinach cakes." I can't wait to try them! They suggest using them as a light, vegetarian lunch. This will serve 4 as a main dish (2 per person) or 8 if you are just serving 1 to each person as a side dish.

      Delicious! I halved the recipe and baked in ramekins. I added maybe a tablespoon of minced onion. I wish I would have made the whole batch to enjoy later. Thanks for posting this keeper recipe!

      A friend brought these to have for breakfast when we were at a weeklong conference- what a treat! I've made them several times since, and really enjoy having them on hand for 'on the go' breakfast before long day @ work. Have used whole milk ricotta as well- rich and creamy results! Thanks for a winning recipe!

      These were really good!

      I did add a little more garlic and some diced red pepper. I had just a bit left over from a pepper I roasted, so I just used it up.

      I had 1 working lunch so I served these with a big bowl of white bean and potato soup and some crusty bread. A nice lunch.

      I made a simple white cheese sauce. Very little that I served on top of the spinach cakes. Just a bechemel and parm. Nothing too thick, which was a nice garnish.

      Very nice! Turned out perfect.

      Second time, just wanted to mention that made them for a baby shower yesterday and again they were a hit. I made them in the baby colors for cups, but made baby "sized" ones so they were bite size. Everyone loved them and asked for the recipe. I again added a little cheese as a garnish but this time just a little melted gruyere right at the end on top of the spinach cake. I really think the fresh spinach is perfect for this and I also again added a little red pepper just for color. But ricotta is my choice, but I think either would work well.

      It is just a great fresh flavor. Nothing hard and very good. I love ow easy it is and they come out like little muffins. This is a definite make over and over recipe.
