Gluten Free Cheese and Spinach Bites recipe


Photo of 11 Gluten Free Cheese and Spinach Savoury bites on a plate


Ideal for a savoury snack, a picnic lunch or as part of a meal.

Ingredients

250g full fat cottage cheese
80g baby leaf spinach
2 eggs
40g Polenta
100g Gluten Free Flour (I used this one)
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch Garlic Pepper (or just black peeper if you prefer)
Pinch Chilli powder (if desired)
Splash of whole milk (until you have a good consistency - about a tablespoon or 2)

Method

Beat the eggs
Add the polenta to the eggs, mix in and leave to soak
Remove the leaves from the spinach and tear up the leaves a bit
Add the cottage cheese, chilli, pepper, egg mixture and stir
Add flour and baking power and stir some more
Add milk until you have a good consistency.
Spoon into cake cases in a muffin tin
Bake at 190ºC for 25-30 mins or until tops turn golden








Tips and alternatives


If you don't want to make them gluten free, use normal plain flour and omit the milk.

They are also scrummy with diced bacon added (at the stage where you mix everything together - I dry fry it first but it's probably not necessary)

Use non stick cake cases as the recipe doesn't contain much fat. Or, spray them with oil, or just don't use them - grease your tray though. The paper cases do make them a little more portable for picnics.

    1. Do be wary of the cake cases though - we just found out the hard way that cheap ones we bought are rubbish. I was feeling dead organised too, having made them to take for a picnic (indoor) after swimming.
