Low Cal meal for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner

Marlene Holladay--my own creation

Serves/Makes:6 or more

  • 1 bag baby spinach
  • 1 bag shredded Jack cheese
  • 6 large egg whites
  • 2 whole large eggs
  • spices or seasoning, as desired
  • 4 tbsp (60 ml) salsa (optional)
  • Spray a loaf pan with vegetable spray. (I use the olive oil spray)
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a large bowl whip the 2 whole eggs in with the 6 egg whites.
  • Add the whole bag of shredded cheese.
  • Then add the spices, and salsa is you choose to use it.
  • Add the whole bag of spinach.
  • Use your hands and mix all ingredients together.
  • Put in the loaf pan, pressing it all down.
  • Make sure the spinach is covered with the eggs and cheese.
  • Cover with foil, spray the foil too, as it will stick if it touches the casserole top.
  • Seal the foil really well.
  • Bake for 45 minutes.
  • Take out and let rest for awhile.
  • Slice into desired size 8 to 10 suggested.
I figured all the calories, and got 137 calories in each slice. I have eaten it cold as a snack, or warm with cheese and salsa on top. It is very good that way.

I got this idea one day when I was looking for something light and easy. I cooked it and gave my husband a taste without telling him what was in it. He hates spinach. After tasting it I told him what it was and he said "Spinach! I hate spinach! This was really good--what a surprise!"
