Recipe: Spinach and Cheese Cakes by Dawn

 Before cooking
After cooking

2 pkg frozen chopped spinach, 10 ounces each
3 Tb extra virgin olive oil, 1 for onion and 2 to fry cakes
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs,
1/2 cup grated parmesan/romano cheese
1 egg, beaten
salt and freshly ground pepper

Defrost spinach in microwave.   Wring spinach dry by pressing into sieve over sink until spinach has given off all of its liquid.   Place spinach in a medium bowl.   Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat, add oil and onion and saute the onion until soft, 5 minutes.   

Add onion to spinach in bowl and return pan to stove top.   Turn off heat.   Add remaining ingredients to spinach: bread crumbs, cheese, egg, salt and pepper.  Combine mixture with a fork, then form into 3 inch patties.   Set aside.  

Add 2 Tb oil to skillet and reheat to medium high heat.   Cook cakes 2-3 minutes on first side. They will be dark brown, watch they don't burn.   Turn heat down to medium and flip over to cook 3 minutes on second side.
