I LOVE hot, cheesy spinach dip.
I do not love swiss chard.
That said, we’re moving and trying to empty out our freezer and cabinets, and we’ve had a bag of frozen swiss chard sitting in the freezer for about a hundred years now. I could have sautéed it or put it in a stir fry, but all I saw with that was a night of fighting my three year old to get him to eat it.
But then I saw the spinach and began to wonder… could I turn that sad, lonely bag of chard into something we’d all love?
Ummmmmmmm…. yes. Yes, I could.
And you can too.
1. Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut a corner off each bag of frozen green. Squeeze each bag of greens so the liquid flows out, but not the greens. Keep squeezing until you can't get any more of the liquid to release. Place the green into an oven-safe baking dish (in my photos it's a 9" round by 3.5" deep stoneware casserole dish).
Top with crisp pieces of bacon for a little extra yum!
For the past 20+ years, I've been cooking to accommodate a variety of food preferences, allergies, and styles. Lately, I've been working on paleo breads and baking with cassava flour since we've realized it's sooooooo much easier to send The Wee Man to preschool with sandwiches in his lunch.
