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.

I wasn't sure if I was going to give this 4 or 5 stars. Tasted good, but they were't quite what I expected, and didn't come out as pretty as French Tart's.Then my son, who is hard to get vegetables into, took a bite and said these are good and started shoveling them in. 5 stars now. I did a half batch and chopped the spinach by hand. For 12 ounces of spinach I would bring out the food processor. Used cottage cheese because I had more to do with the leftovers of that. Thank you. Apparently it IS easy being green.

I made half a recipe to serve with Chicken Saltimbocca With Lemon Sauce. Great side dish. I quickly made them and put into the oven, then started the chicken. Done at the same time. DH really like them.

These were so easy to make and were truly delicious JB! I cut the recipe back to make 4 large cakes in ramekins, 2 each for lunch today. I also added a twist of fresh nutmeg to the mixture and an extra clove of garlic, we are garlic fiends! Made for the Aussie/NZ recipe swap and very much enjoyed! Merci encore, FT:-)
