Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry. Shrimp, cheese, spinach and eggs make this dish an all time favorite with my friends and family. Having made it for years, I many times change some of the ingredients, but this one I make the most. It is different than any recipe I have ever come across, so it is original as far as I know. I make my own crust, but the boughten ones work just fine..
