1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg
1 cup whole milk (2% works fine)
1/2 - 1 cup fresh steamed chopped spinach - thawed, drained and squeezed dry
1 cup shredded Cheddar or Swiss cheese
4 garlic cloves, chopped finely
1 small onion, chopped finely

muffin cups. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
together in a mixing bowl. Stir the melted butter, egg, milk, spinach,

about 35 minutes. Serve warm with a buttery spread. To store: place in
a freezer tight ziplock, defrost for 40-45 seconds, and serve with
