This was fun to make and all I added to it was 1/2 cup of cracker crumbs with the cheese.I let it set up for 10 mins out of the oven and it was a big hit with my picky family.... Read More

This is a good recipe. But honestly I find all the different steps tedious and unnecessary. Just make a roux with the butter and flour then add the milk and let thicken then add the onion and cheese and lastly the spinach. Then pour into a casserole. It just seemed more time consuming than it should have been and it turned out to be just like other creamed spinach recipes I've made before. The taste is good (whoa is there a lot of cheese!) though. Read More

This is a great recipe. I made it for Easter and it was the hit of the table. I used all the ingredients listed but I changed the way I prepared it. I prepared it using only one pan on the top of the stove. I used the 1 tbls. of butter and sauted the onions until browned then I added the 3 tbls. additional butter to the same pan and after it melted I added the flour and blended until a smooth paste formed. After that I added cold milk the dry mustard and garlic salt. When the mixture thickened I added the cheddar cheese. I stirred the cheese and mixture until the cheese was melted and then added the spinach. Combined it all and then put in into the casserole dish and topped it with the Montery Jack cheese. Popped it in the oven and it came out perfect. Read More

This is good for a vegetable side but even better as an appetizer! I used smoked cheddar and topped with a shredded Mexican blend. Next time I will add tabasco when I prepare it. Also chopped artichoke hearts would be really good in this! I'll do that next time! Read More

This is so good! I did add my own touch by adding crumbled bacon. I didn't add salt the bacon had enough in it. Thank you for the nice casserole idea! Read More

I think as the recipe stands it's not a "perfect" recipe - I altered it a bit by not using quite as much Jack cheese on top and adding chopped garlic with the onions and some extra spice! It turned out delicious and I'll probably make it again and alter it to what "feels" good at the time! The consistency was "spoon out" and not cut and serve as I anticipated! My husband loved it!!
