SPINACH SOUFFLE
1 egg

1/3 cup 1% milk
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
2 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a medium bowl whisk together egg, milk, cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. Fold in spinach. Place in a small casserole dish. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until lightly set.

If you’re in a hurry, you can use a microwave safe casserole dish, cover with plastic wrap, and cook on high for 3 minutes. Release the steam, recover, and cook on high for another 3 minutes.

I know I shared this next recipe before, but I think it was before we were publishing them on our website, and it’s worth repeating!
