Ingredients

  • ¾ cup full-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • ¾ cup cottage cheese

Instructions

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is melted, bubbly and browning a bit, about 20-25 minutes. Broil for an additional 1-2 minutes if you want to brown your cheese even more.

  • Remove from oven and serve warm with crusty bread, crackers, chips or veggies.

Notes

  • Fresh spinach: If using fresh spinach add about 10-12 ounces of spinach to a pan and cook it down until wilted. Let cool, squeeze out any excess liquid, roughly chop and use as directed.
  • Thaw spinach fast: If you don't have time to wait for your spinach to thaw, just add it to a strainer and run warm or hot water over the spinach until thawed. If you do this give your spinach an extra squeeze to remove the excess liquid!
  • Use a hand mixer: If you don't have a food processor, you can easily combine your ingredients with a hand mixer instead.
