Spinach Spoonbread

Recipe by FLKeysJen
READY IN: 1hr 45mins




  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and dry milk. Mix in the butter with a fork, a pastry blender, a mixer, or your fingers, till crumbly.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Sauté the onion in the butter until it’s soft and becoming golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, add the ricotta, salt, egg substitute or eggs, spinach, and grated cheese to the large bowl.
  • When the onions are almost done, stir in the thyme and nutmeg. Remove them from the heat, and add them to the large bowl.
  • Mix everything together thoroughly, and spoon it into a greased pie pan. Spread with the sour cream. This is best done by dolloping the sour cream atop the filling, then using a spatula, or the back of a spoon, to smooth down and connect the dollops. Sprinkle with paprika, if desired.
  • Bake the quiche for 50 to 55 minutes, or until it appears set almost all the way into the center, and has begun to brown slightly. It may crack, also; that’s OK.
  • Remove it from the oven, and cool it on a rack for at least 20 minutes, preferably 30, before serving.
