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.
