    Kymmarie's Note:

    A really tasty snack dish from the American Diabetes Association. I used flax seed instead of the wheat germ, but that's the way the recipe was written.

      I added boursin cheese to this recipe and it made it so good that everyone in my family scarfed it down so fast that they couldn't even wait for it to cool down and kept burning their mouths that's how good it was! For four entree size servings I used 4 eggs, 5 1/2 tbsp wheat flour, 10 oz spinach, 2 cups cottage cheese, 1/2 cup cheddar, dash pepper, dash nutmeg, dash salt (my addition), 2 tbsp boursin cheese (my addition), and I omitted the cayenne and wheat germ. This recipe is now a staple in our home.

      I'm sorry, but I made this recipe exactly as written, and didn't like it at all. I love spinach and cheese, and was sure I would like this, but it didn't turn out at all how I'd hoped. The pepper was the only thing I could taste, and otherwise it was kind of bland. Perhaps adding onion and/or garlic would improve it for me, as another reviewer suggested.

      A nice healthy appetizer! I added chopped artichoke hearts (used box of frozen, thawed first). I added an extra egg to hold it together and also used fatfree ricotta instead of cottage cheese. Yummy! (and I did the flax seed like you did)
