The “Potluckers” have been meeting for potluck lunches since 1955.  Their connection is being raised in the Serbian Orthodox communities of Los Angeles. They are sisters, cousins, in-laws and above all else Friends.  I am proud to say that their members include my mother, several of my aunts, and many women I greatly admire.  This recipe has been a staple among the “Potluckers” and their daughters for as long as I can remember.   Desa P. is credited as being the creator of this wonderful dish.


2 eggs, beaten
1 C Milk, whole
1 C Flour, all-purpose
1 tsp Salt

1 tsp Baking Powder

1/4 lb Butter, sweet, melted
10 ounces Frozen Chopped Spinach, thawed – Squeeze out excess liquid
1 lb Jack Cheese, diced 

 Butter a 10×15 pan.  Mix beaten eggs, milk, flour, salt, baking powder, melted butter, and spinach.  Then fold in Jack cheese.  Pour in pan.  Bake in middle of oven for 30 – 35 minutes at 350 degrees.  Cut into squares, serve warm.
