Spinach Ricotta Bites ~ Gluten Free ~ Grain Free

Spinach Ricotta Bites:
I recently went through my old recipe index box and found this recipe that I have not made in ages. I totally forgot that this recipe is naturally Gluten Free, Grain Free and Low in Carbs. This makes a great side dish, appetizer or snack.

For more recipes and tidbits please join me on my
Facebook Gluten Free Page:

Spinach Ricotta Bites:

In a medium skillet:
Melt 2 TBL. Unsalted Butter over medium heat
1 Small Chopped/Minced Onion.
Cook the Onions until tender, do not brown the onion.
Minced Garlic to Taste and cook 1 minute.
Remove the Skillet from the heat and cool for 10 minutes.

In a Medium bowl Whisk together:
2 Large Eggs
Stir in:
1 Cup Ricotta Cheese
½ Cup Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
½ Cup Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese, Shredded

Defrost 1-10 0z. package of Frozen Chopped Spinach
Drain well,, I squeeze the Spinach between Paper towels; trying to get out as much liquid as possible.

Add the Spinach; crumbling it into small piece
Sprinkle on a little salt.
To the Egg and Cheese Mixture and mix together.

After the Onion mixture has cooled add to the entire mixture and mix well.

Preheat the oven to 350*

Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.

Using a Cookie Scoop evenly measure out the Batter. These do no rise like a muffin so fill
the tins to the top.

I got 20 Bites.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove to a wire rack.
