Crock Pot Spinach Spoon Bread Lightened Up

Slow Cooker Spinach Spoon Bread

Lightened Up Crock Pot Spinach Spoon Bread

(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 156)

Deliciously different and so simple to make,  this crock pot spinach spoon bread, is a lightened up version of one from the Gooseberry Patch Slow-Cooker Recipes Cookbook that caught my eye.

Having never made spoon bread before, I really wasn’t sure what to expect.

I’d describe it as what I imagine spinach cornbread stuffing would taste like, if there is such a thing.  Or a moist spinach laden corn muffin if that makes any sense.

The original crock pot spinach spoon bread recipe called for 1/2 cup butter, which I decided to eliminate completely.

In it’s place I used an additional half-cup of cottage cheese and couple tablespoons of nonfat plain Greek yogurt.

This lightened up crock pot spinach spoon bread made a nice side dish with last night’s dried fruit stuffed pork roast.

I liked it so much I had more warmed up for lunch today. And may have it again for breakfast tomorrow.

Recipe type: Main
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained and squeezed to remove excess moisture
  • 6 green onions, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 package (5-1/2 to 6-1/2 ounces) cornbread mix
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups low fat cottage cheese
  • 2 tablespoon nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
Instructions
  1. Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 3 to 4-Quart
  2. Grease the inside of the slow cooker.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together all the ingredients until well blended.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the slow cooker.
  5. Cover, with the lid slightly ajar to allow moisture to escape.
  6. Cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours or until the edges are golden and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Serve this crock pot spinach spoon bread right from the slow cooker, which is what I did. Or you could loosen the edges and bottom with a knife and invert onto plate and cut into wedges, if you prefer.
