Quasado (Crustless Spinach Quiche)

January 1, 2012

This is one of those recipes my Mom made frequently.  We often had quasado with tomato soup on cold wintery days or with chicken soup at night.  Mom always served this as a nibble at card parties and she was lucky to have any left for the family…everyone loved this dish.

Quasado, pronounced kwah-shah-doh, is a Sephardic Jewish dish of spinach, feta cheese, garlic, onion, parmesan cheese and lots of dill.  Make it in a pie plate, or muffin cups for easy to wrap and pack in lunchboxes.  The flavors are Mediterranean with a moist spongy center topped with crunchy browned parmesan cheese.  The same recipe can be made for appetizers by simply spreading the mixture over a 7X11 inch rectangular pan lined with parchment paper.  Bake as directed below and cut into fingers or squares.
