The cottage cheese is whisked together with eggs, egg whites, green onions and sharp cheddar. After a bit of flour to bind, melted butter for richness and seasonings to spice things up are mixed in, a large amount of spinach is folded in and then poured in a square baking dish. Adorning the top is a shower of fresh grated Parmesan cheese and then it bakes away until bubbly and golden. I let them cool to almost room temperature which allowed for very clean cuts. We both liked the creamy texture which helped to bring the sharp cheese flavors to the front. I did take a little piece out to try while they were still very warm, but I thought it tasted best at room temperature. Next time, I might warm up some fresh minced garlic in the butter instead of using granulated for a bit stronger flavor. Since these could easily be done ahead of time, I bet these would be fun cut into small cubes to be passed around at a party.
