Baked Spinach Supreme $4.18
From Country Living
6 Servings
251 Calories 20 g. protein 2 g. fiber 9 g. fat

In small bowl combine the following:

1 c. reduced fat baking biscuit mix .30
(I used biscuits from scratch, I cut the butter into the dry ingredients and just took out 1 c. of this)
2 egg whites .22
1 egg .11 ¼ c. fat free milk .10
¼ c. finely chopped onion .10

Pour into a greased 11 X 7 inch baking dish.

Next prepare the filling:
1 pkg. 10 oz. frozen chopped spinach thawed and squeezed dry 1.00
1 ½ c. fat free cottage cheese 1.00
¾ c. Monterrey Jack Cheese 0.50
½ c. grated Parmesan cheese .50
(I was out of Parmesan cheese, oops, so I added all the packets of Parmesan cheese I had from Papa John's, 4. It still tasted great, so you can decrease the amount for the Parmesan cheese if you want to lower the fat content.)
2 egg whites .22
1 egg .11
1 t. dried minced onion or fresh minced onion .02

Mix together and spoon over the biscuit mixture. Bake uncovered 28-32 minutes or until golden brown and knife comes out clean.

We served this with grapes .25 bringing our meal total to $4.43
