Patty’s Cheese Squares
My sister Patty would make these squares and bring them to our Moms. They would disappear.
The great thing about them is that you can use broccoli, spinach, asparagus or whatever other vegetable you like.
Today I decided to use broccoli because I had a lot leftover.
One pound of cooked , chopped broccoli
One pound of cottage cheese
1/2 pound of cheddar cheese
1/4 pound muenster
1/2 pound mozzarella cheese
1/4 pound american cheese
1/8 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
6 well beaten eggs
Mix everything together.
Grease a deep dish 9 x 9 pan
Place the filling inside.
Bake at 400 degrees for at least a 1/2 hour or until it is set in the middle.
This is a great recipe for using leftovers like chopped steak or pork.
I have sautéed onion and peppers with the vegetables or meat.
Just keep the basic egg, cheese, flour and condiments and you can add anything you want.
If you are using spinach make sure it is squeezed dry.
These can also be made in mini or regular muffin tins just adjust the time.
Use muffin tin liners to avoid a messy clean up.
If you want to really go wild, use crispy bacon, cooked sausage or diced ham.
Very forgiving recipe.
These freeze nicely.
