DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Heat oil in heavy pot over medium high heat.
  • Saute onion and garlic until onion is starting to turn yellow, not quite brown.
  • Add spinach in batches and saute until wilted.
  • In bowl, beat cottage cheese, eggs, oregano, salt and pepper if using, together.
  • Add spinach mixture and mix thoroughly.
  • Spoon batter into muffin tin, fill 3/4 full - I use paper cupcake liners. This makes about 16 to 18 muffins. I just use my dozen cupcake pan, and then put the leftover mix into small ramekin cups.
  • Variation: grease the muffin tin, then cut flour tortillas (use a flattened out cupcake liner as a template) into rounds, carefully push the tortillas into greased muffin cups, fold over excess tortilla from the side. Fill 3/4 full with mixture.
  • Top each muffin with heaping teaspoon of crumbled feta.
  • Bake until top starts to brown, about 30 minutes (without tortilla) or increase time to about 35 to 40 minutes with tortilla.
