Baby Finger Food: Spinach Cups

I wanted to share a great recipe that I found through Pinterest.  The original recipe is from The Test Kitchen of Melissa Fallis.  This is the second time I’ve made the spinach cups.  The first time my daughter didn’t like them at first, but then we gave them to her a few weeks later and she devoured them!  Looks like this batch is going to be eaten pretty quickly too.  🙂  I haven’t tried the other recipes, but they look pretty tasty too.

Ingredients:

– Spinach (I used a 10 oz bag)

– 1/2 cup sour cream

– 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

– 2 eggs

– sprinkle of pepper

– sprinkle of garlic powder (the original recipe called for minced garlic, but I didn’t have any fresh garlic)

Directions:

IMG_37521. Preheat oven to 350 F.  Chop up the spinach.  I had great success with a Tupperware Quick Chef Pro System.  I chopped the spinach into rough chunks.

 

 

 

 

IMG_37532. Add the sour cream.

Ok, I’m showing off more Tupperware here!  Bowl, measuring cups…I had a Tupperware Bridal Shower before we got married…let’s just say, I got spoiled!  🙂

IMG_37625. Fill a mini muffin pan with the spinach mixture.  I filled them to the top and it made 24 muffins.  Put in the preheated oven.

I just recently cleaned my oven, but it certainly doesn’t look like it from this picture!

 

 

 

IMG_37636. Let them back for about 20 – 25 minutes.  A toothpick should come clean when inserted into the middle of the muffins.

Here is E waiting for her spinach cups!  (Don’t mind the messy oven door…that was a pretzel making mishap!)

Enjoy!  Thanks again to Melissa Fallis for this great recipe!
