I got this recipe from a college friend’s blog. I’ve changed it up a bit.

Don’t let the title fool you! These are NOT for dessert…but they ARE delicious!

Saute the following in either chicken stock or olive oil:
* 1 package frozen spinach, thawed
* 1 diced onion
* garlic
Set aside

Combine the following dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl:
* about a cup of flour (i try to use less and also blend in some whole wheat)
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* dash of salt
Set aside

Mix together the following wet ingredients:
* 2 eggs
* 1 cup milk
* 1/4 melted butter
Add the wet ingredients (not the spinach and onion) to the dry ingredients and stir

Add the sauteed spinach and onion along with 2 cups grated cheddar and 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese to the batter (you can use low-fat varieties of cheese if you like). Sometimes I substitute low fat cream cheese.

Spray a 9X13 inch pan with cooking spray, spread batter into pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
