I’ve always been a lover of greens. Even when I was growing up, I’d be the one to reach for a spoon and the last few vegetables in the bowl at dinnertime to polish them off.

For me, the dessert would go uneaten, but the veggies didn’t stand a chance!

This is what I shared about this recipe back in 2014:

I remember the classic spinach and artichoke dip from the late 1970s and early 1980s, and it became popular again early in 2000s. 

I’ve taken that original recipe and have updated it to be quiche-like and portable. These spinach artichoke party squares can be eaten as an appetizer, side dish, or a between meal snack while standing at the kitchen counter (not that I would know about anything like that)! HA!

How and when to serve spinach artichoke quiche squares:

  • If serving these spinach artichoke squares as a party food, I suggest cutting them into smaller, bite-sized squares and serving them at room temperature.
  • If serving them as a side dish, cut them big, and serve them warm.
  • If eating them at the kitchen counter, grab a fork and dig into the pan they were cooked in. Yep, that works just fine!
  • And don’t forget, they’re green!! So serve them for St. Patrick’s Day!!

Yes. You can freeze these once baked. Thaw before reheating.

How to make spinach artichoke squares:

  • In a large bowl, combine the thawed, dry spinach, chopped artichokes, minced onion, and grated fresh nutmeg.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, eggs, and milk.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the spinach mixture, and stir to combine.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, and Parmesan cheese into the spinach mixture and stir until just combined.
  • Pour the mixture into a 8 x 8 baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 35-40 minutes or until the center is set.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before cutting into appropriate sized squares.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.

Can these tasty appetizer squares be frozen?

  • Yes! Bake them first. Cool them completely. Wrap them well. Freeze them for up to 2 months.
  • Thaw them completely before reheating.
  • Cover with foil, and reheat in a 375-degree oven for 10-12 minutes.

These look delicious! Does the texture resemble a quiche? Considering them as a BBQ side dish and wondering if I should save the recipe for another day.

Thank you

Hi, Mike! They are *somewhat* quiche-like because of the eggs involved. I think they would be a very nice BBQ side dish, and something unexpected. I do hope you'll save the recipe and make them often and for many different occasions. Thanks for the question. Take care and be well. Renee

I wanted to like these. I am not sure what I could have done wrong. But they are dense and yet mushy and need salt for sure. Can you suggest a change. How about if I use a different cheese? (what about cottage cheese?)

Renée

Hi, Nancy! I'm sorry you didn't like these because I certainly wanted you to as well. I wonder what could have happened? I'm not trying to put this on you, but I have to ask...did you squeeze the frozen spinach dry before adding it to the mix? If not, that may have contributed to the mushiness. These squares are, in fact, very dense (because they're packed with ingredients), but I've never had the problem of them being mushy. Of course, you can always play with the recipe and add cottage cheese (I do think that would work), but I don't think it would add much more flavor. Adding more salt is a very personal preference, but it would add more flavor if you felt it lacking. Perhaps a feta cheese would help add the flavor and a salty bite you might enjoy. Or. for more flavor, maybe a pepper jack would be to your liking? If you decide to try these again with any changes I'd love to hear how they worked for you. In the meantime, I appreciate the comment even though these weren't for you. Take care, Renee

I made you recipe yesterday for a wine & appetizer party. I'd made something similar in the past, but minus the artichokes. I coarsely chopped the artichokes, spinach and onion in the food processor.I thought it was good, but lacked seasoning. It could be me since I'm a "salt" person. The next time I make these - and there will be a next time - I'm going to add some crumbled feta. Love the artichoke addition. Thanks for the recipe!

Hi Mary! Thanks so much for coming back to tell me that you tried, and enjoyed, this recipe. I think adding feta to these will be a delicious addition, and will definitely up the salt factor that you love! You're welcome for the recipe! I love bringing them to you :)Renee
