I'm not sure what happened when we cooked these, but they turned out more like an omelet. They were very watery, maybe the spinach needed to be dried off better. I've been looking for a spinach square recipe to make for my DH as he always talks about his mother making them when he was little. I might try making these again but using fresh spinach. Thanks
