Popeye Muffins!

I bought a can of Spinach today at Safeway and wanted to bake Spinach Muffins! They're super "Spinachy" (is that a word?") and PERFECT with a bowl of soup for dinner!

Ingredients: (6 muffins)

1 can (13½ oz) cut spinach
1/3 c melted unsalted butter
2 Tbsp garlic salt
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp baking soda
1 c all-purpose flour
½ c Cornmeal
1 c Mozzarella Cheese


*You don't need a mixer for this recipe.

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, spinach, cheese and melted butter. Sprinkle baking soda, salt and pepper over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour and cornmeal.
2. Distribute the muffin dough equally among lined muffin cups, filling the cups up completely.
3. Bake on the middle rack until muffins are golden brown, and the top of the muffins bounce back when you press on them, about 25 to 30 minutes. Set on wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from the tin let cool another 20 minutes.

These look sooo good. Do you think cornmeal is necessary, or do you think I could just use flour?

I'm pretty sure you can just use flour. I already had cornmeal so I used some in them. I figured it would make the muffins more "veggie" but it's not crucial.
