This was absolutely delicious! I used fresh, chopped spinach & added some garlic. Didn't have green onions so I used regular chopped onlion. I also added a little half & half to potatoes while mashing. I combined everything ahead of time, refridgerated, then put in casserole dish & baked during the last half of my stuffed chicken/spinach recipe. Great combination & just as good leftover!Read More
Loving Potatoes and Spinach I thought this would be great. I was disappointed how bland it was. I will make it again, but double the spinach and fry it first with the green onions and some minced garlic and onions. Then add it to the mashed potatoes and reduce the sour cream.Read More

These were good. I read all of the reviews and made mashed potatoes my own way (margarine, 2% milk, lots of garlic, reduced fat sour cream etc etc all to taste) and then just added the green onions and thawed spinach. The thing about making mashed potatoes as per someone else's recipe is that potatoe sizes vary so much that you really need to do it all to taste and not w/ standard measurements. That is just my 2 cents though :)
My husband and I are both spinach lovers, so we both loved this recipe! The leftovers were gone the next day. I found that when warming up the leftovers, "frying" it in a pan and adding some butter and salt made it absolutely delicious. I will definately make it again.
My husband has proclaimed this one of his all time favorites. Making this last night, aside from adding a little garlic,I followed the recipe, just added extra of some things. I doubled the spinach, added extra onions, and completely covered the top in a thick layer of chedder cheese.Thanks for the great recipe!

This was divine. I did make just a few little changes. I used green onion instead of chives, used fresh spinach that I steamed in the microwave, and added some non-dairy cream cheese to round out the flavour. My husband loved this, telling me that I was lucky he did not eat it all. He also wants me to try it as a filling for perogies. Will definitely make this again and again. I might also try another type of cheese other than cheddar, siwss might be nice, or havarti
This is a nice, creamy side dish, and a great way to get kids to eat spinach - my crew all had doubles. I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream to cut calories. A dash of garlic powder would be a nice addition.
I made this exactly as written and it was not only a colorful and attractive way to serve mashed potatoes but it was also very tasty! I added some crumbled bacon to the cheese topping and that went over really well!
This recipe is excellent! I added some extra sour cream and a little milk since it seemed a little on the dry side when I was mixing it all up. I served this with a meatloaf and everyone absolutely LOVED it!!
For those of you who might not realize…the ingredients of this recipe are what you use to mash the potatoes. I found it worded in a way that almost made it seem like you mash the potatoes using the usual ingredients (milk, butter) and then add all the other ingredients. Nope! I boil my potatoes in chicken broth which I think improves any mashed potato recipe. I cooked my onions and about 2 gloves of garlic in the ¼ cup of butter that’s called for then mixed it into the sour cream. Then when the potatoes were done, I pulverized them with an electric mixer and added the sour cream mixture which essentially created mashed potatoes. Then I mixed in the spinach, baked and added the shredded cheese as directed. My husband and I like it a lot but my picky 10 year old would not touch it sadly. Makes a lot.
Very bland as is. I tried this a second time and added minced jalapenos ~ it was just "okay".
I have made this recipe for years now and it is a family favorite. Always gets rave reviews. Do try this!
Very good recipe- quick and to the point. I modified in the following ways. While the potatoes were boiling, I sauteed onion and garlic in olive oil for about 5 minutes. I then added diced tomatoes with some jalapenos and cooked those for about 2 minutes. I added the spinach last, stirred and covered the pot for about 10 minutes. I masked the potatoes then added the cooked spinach combo. I mixed in one cup of plain low fat yogurt. Added a few dashes of cayenne pepper and spicy salsa. Add as much as you like, if you like spicy food as I do. Then poured into into baking dish, baked as directed. I used vegan cheese to replace the Cheddar cheese. Very yummy and healthier.
I served this with the Dijon-Tarragon Chicken recipe from this site for company and everyone absolutely loved it! I would definitely make this again-it's a quick and easy way to get your starch and green veggie added to your dinner.
Most of my family really liked this. My youngest daughter loved it. I did add a couple of things based on other viewers saying it was a little bland. First I sauteed the green onions with some chopped garlic and then when I mixed everything together I thought it needed a kick. So I added some good seasons Italian dressing. It was just a splash, but it gave it some good flavor. We will make this again.
Yummy! I used this recipe to use up leftover mashed potatoes. I sauteed a couple tablespoons of red onion (thats what I had) with a tbsp of butter and added about 2 cups of fresh baby spinach and cooked until wilted. Mixed about 1/2 cup sour cream into the mashed potatoes, with sea salt and cracked black pepper. I added about a tbsp of chopped fresh rosemary to the potatoes, and a few tbsp of grated fresh parmesan (it was the only cheese I had!). Mixed it all together. I was afraid of it sticking so I brushed the dish with butter. And brushed the top with butter and a few more sprinkles of cheese. Baked for 15 minutes then broiled for 5 to get a nice brown top. Very yummy, going to be my new fave way to use up leftovers!
oh my.... This is GREAT! I did use a little more sour cream and also i left the skins on the potatoes. (I'm too lazy to peel. Never done it and not planing on it!) This dish looked wonderful also. Will make again!!
My son loves mash potato as well as spinach and this recipe is a wonderful combination! I cooked it the other night and had the leftover on the following day and it was so yummy. Simple and delicious....will definitely cook it again. Thanks for sharing!
Very good! It went over great with the whole family. I used Monterey Jack cheese instead of cheddar and it was wonderful. Will be adding this to my specialties for sure.
This wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I will try to make again & see if I like it better.
I came upon this recipe through an ingredient search for spinach and potatoes, and I'm glad I tried it. The only change I made was adding 1 clove of minced garlic. I tasted it before the mixture went into the oven and baked, and I actually liked it better that way. I found the cheddar cheese a little overpowering- but I used a good cheddar that I had shredded myself. When it was just the mashed mixture on the stove it reminded me of Colcannon- which I love. Would definitely make a variation of this again.
My family loved this! I altered a tad because of the fact the sour cream I had had already been turned into French Onion soup mix dip. It added amazing flavoring and I didn't have to add any onion because of it. Another keeper!
add, cream of chicken soup to mashed potates when whipping .
Excellent recipe! I used fresh spinach instead of frozen and it was great. Super quick and easy side dish, great for people who don't really like spinach b/c it's not too strong.
My husband and son loved this. What a great way to get in some extra spinach.
I used instant mashed potatos and an italian cheese blend...and it still turned out great. I will be making it again, no question.
This was a wonderful dish. I used a good amount of garlic and more green onions along with fresh spinach from my garden. I sauteed all those ingredients together while cooking the potatoes. I chose to use an Italian blend of cheese. Once I mixed everything together (including the cheese), I had a hard time putting it in the oven because I kept eating it. I put a good amount of S&P in as well. The only problem I had with this recipe was that it was so darn hard to stop eating it. Thanks for a great versatile recipe.
I used a 5 lb. bag of red potatoes, so I slightly increased the butter and sour cream. I added 2 tsp. garlic powder. It filled a 10 x 15 baking dish. I cooked it the night before a church dinner. I added 1/2 c. milk before moving it to a large crockpot. I added a couple pats of butter on top, heated it on high for 2 hours, and I poured a bag of shredded cheddar cheese over it before serving. I brought home 3 servings.
A bit bland, but easy to remedy with garlic and choice spices like dried basil. both potatoes and spinach will go with many common spices. A great dinner side dish for a crowd. I will use this again, but a bit tweaked.
This is alright- it really just tastes like mashed potatoes with spinach.
Absolutely outstanding! You can add even more spinach than the recipe calls for if you have an abundance of spinach from your garden - this recipe can handle itif you add quite a bit extra.
Pretty good..a little on the bland side. Added 2 packages of spinach and minced garlic.
I added a bit of horseradish sauce to give it a little kick. It was great.
delicious. Go w/ fat free Sour creme for health reasons, use a whole bunch of green onions (or more) and add about 3 spoonfuls of minced garlic.
This recipe went over well with all 4 of us ranging from 34 to 3 years old. A good way to get everyone to eat their spinach! I will make this again!
This was a great recipe! My EXTREMELY picky husband couldn't stop eating it! But in my own opinion, it needs more flavor. At the very least, more salt and pepper would suffice :)
This is very good. I love that it's a simple and easy variation of mashed potatoes. You can make it ahead of time too, then pop in oven 30 min before dinner. We loved it!
Great dish. My 7 year old loved it. Will make again.
This is a top notch comfort food and all I did was "veganize' it so I could eat it. Bravo!
This was really good. I subd. white onion for the green onion and added corn flakes on top.
I loved this dish! However, to save time (and money), I used instant mashed potatoes with sour cream and chives and eliminated the chopped green onions. Cut prep time in half without any loss in flavor!
Excellent! I used fresh spinach instead (because I had it on hand) and it worked out just fine.
I didn't have green onion but it turns out good. It was pretty and people liked it. I may add bacon bits next time.
I love this recipe!! I first made it a couple weeks ago and loved it so much that I've made it three times since already. It's great to play around with too. One time I made it with instant mashed potatoes since I was out of fresh ones and it still came out great and took half the time. Another time I used red potatoes and left the skins on when I mashed them and added red onions instead of green and it was delicious!! Great recipe!!
Love this recipe, I did add some nutmeg and vegetarian chicken pieces. I have a vegetarian daughter and two meat eating guys everyone thought this was a winner. Perfect for a cold winters day.
I made this last nite, it was very good. But on reading the recipe beforehand I thought it would really need "a little more flavor" so I added minced garlic, and garlic salt. Had rotisserie chicken left over, chopped that up and added it. I used parmesan cheese on the top instead. Yummy!! Nice one dish meal. Thanks!! ;o)
I used no fat sour cream, light butter, about 1/3rd of the cheese and fresh spinach (all we had). We loved this! Very light and fresh, although we needed to add additional cracked pepper and salt. Next time we'll try a different cheese. had with grilled mushrooms tonight but would be fantastic with grilled fish.
This was good, but not spectacular. It was a little bland even after adding extra sour cream. I think I will try again, but next time I will make sure to make the mash potatoes my way before adding spinach.
I made this for the holidays, great twist to your standard potatoes and a good way to also eat some spinach! used garlic instead of green onions and not so much cheese, everyone like the dish. Thanks!
Made this tonight to go with ribs. It was fabulous. My husband liked it even with the "green stuff" in it.
I make a lot of vegetarian meals. We had this as a main dish. Cut butter in half, used fresh spinach, and used fresh grated asiago cheese and half cheddar. Added garlic and used reg onions since I had no GOs. Will def make again.
very, very tasty! i used several cups of fresh chopped spinach instead of frozen, and did add a little extra milk so the potatos didn't dry. it was simple to make, and the perfect side dish to baked chicken fingers. thanks for the idea, lisa!
Loved this recipe. I do agree with others though that it is a little bland. Next time I make it I will add some garlic and maybe use a little more cheese.
So I have to tell you that my husband & I are not big spinach eating people. But in order to get healtier foods in our diet we tried this recipe. It was SO GOOD!!! We absolutly loved it! I put more spanich in than the recipe called for just so I didn't have any left over in the bag; and it was still GREAT!!
This was a wonderful casserole. I made it just like the directions called for, except I may have added a little more spinach. (Our garden is loaded with fresh spinach) My college age son who is not a big spinach fan, loved this. No left overs! Will keep this receipe handy! Thanks
My teenagers love it!!! Thanks for the recipe...:)
I thought it was ok...
This was so eazy and tasted awesome. I will be eating this one alot.
this was delicious!!! Omitted the butter. Everyone loved it.
So, so bland!
I enjoyed this but we all agreed there was 'something' missing (we didn't want to add MORE salt and that wouldn't have been the missing ingredient I am sure). But otherwise a decent enough side for our family to enjoy spinach...just not something I'd serve to others as it wasn't impressive enough. Thanks anyway :)
Great taste, this is a keeper
Great! I scaled the recipe to make 4 servings. In place of the fresh potatoes, I made 6 servings of instant mashed potatoes. Everything else I followed the recipe. This makes a very pretty dish.
This recipe was wonderful. I recommend that if anyone likes spinach and potatoes, to try it. My family loves it and thanks for such a tasteful side dish.
Very good stuff. Whole family enjoyed it. My kids like spinach, but even if they didn't I think they still would have liked this.
Being a spinach lover I loved this recipe!! I cut the recipe in half but kept the spinach the same at first I thought it would be too much but it turned out delicious! I used a fat-free sour cream and skim milk. I used baby swiss cheese because that's all I had. YUM!!
Was looking for a new spinach recipe saw this and decided I didn't want to go thru the trouble of mashing potatoes. Then I remembered I had just enough leftover Slow Cooker Mashed Potaotos and Cauliflower (by kdelegan)in the frig. Left out butter in this recipe and subed Pots and Cauliflower for the mashed. Cut prep time to less then 5 minutes and added cauliflower, Reposted as Potato Spinach Casserole with Cauliflower. Didn't give credit to LISA B7 and kdelegan so I re posted with credit, I hope it shows up if accepted if not I am sooo sorry.
Yummy, even my kids who normally shun spinach ate this. I added some garlic and used one cup Monterrey Jack Cheese rather than Cheddar. Also added more cheese to the top.
Very tasty and attractive dish! I used fresh chives in place of green onions, but the flavor was too mild. Actually, I think garlic would be a far better flavoring for this dish.
Wow! Fantastic recipe and very easy to make ahead. But you're stronger than I am if you can leave this in your fridge without sampling. I used fat free sour cream and substituted 1/4 cup fresh chives for the onions. Thanks for a great recipe Lisa!
Super easy to do, and this was inhaled at the dinner table. I made the mashed potatoes my own way, low fat, using chicken broth and a cup of low fat sour cream, then followed this recipe. It's a nice way to make mashed potatoes a little more interesting, and healthier.
I was initially looking for a recipe with hash browns because it was for a brunch, so I used shredded potatoes instead of mashed. I also added a little minced onion, light mayo, and used fresh spinach. I used more cheese and mixed it in with the potato, then topped with a little more at the end and cooked at 350 for 40 minutes, broiled on low for about 5 minutes to add a little crisp. Everyone loved it - the flavors were great! I think I will top it with real bacon bits during the broiling next time. I will definitely try it with mashed potatoes as well. Great recipe!
Great! My husband didn't know he was eating spinach til I told him! haha... It was so good. Thanks!
Wow! Spinach is super tasty in this potato casserole. Very easy to make. My 2-year-old and husband loved it. It is a miracle. Thank you
For a healthier version I used tofutti (NOT) sour cream and veggie shreds for the cheese...I also used cayenne instead of black pepper and "real" salt and garlic...my 12 year old son ate half the dish in one sitting!I will be making this one again!
This was okay, somewhat bland.
I made this for dinner tonight and we found it very tasty. Since there are just the 2 of us now, I had to cut it down quite a bit. I used fresh spinach, which I chopped and blanched for 2 minutes in the microwave and I used fat free sour cream. The only thing I did wrong, I think, is that I used a bit too much sour cream and it was a bit more 'soupy' than I would have liked.(I didn't measure, my fault).I will make this again and use less. No matter--it was very good and a new way to serve spinach. PS. I asked my husband to rate it and he said that if I cut back on the sour cream it will be a five.
I agree this dish is delicious. Took my "second" batch to a potluck and it was gobbled up with compliments.
This is a great recipes. My husband enjoyed eating it and he don't like spinach! I will be cooking this again but with less potatoes.
We liked this casserole, but it's probably not something I'd make again. I tried to add punch ahead of time by sauteeing the green onions and some garlic in butter. I also added sea salt and was generous on the cheddar cheese topping. The spinach flavor was delicious, but the heaviness of the potatoes drowned out any variation in taste or texture.
WOW! Super easy and delicious.
This was delicious! I used fresh spinach and just blanched it before adding to the potatoes. I also skipped the green onions b/c my husband hates them, and used half the amount of sour cream and double the butter just to cut the sat fat a little bit. It was a big hit, but I don't really consider it a casserole. More like just mashed potatoes with spinach in them....haha
This is my new favourite potato side dish! It's so simple, so tasty and I finally conquered my children's rejection of spinach, they can't get enough of it. I tried it with a wonderfully thickand tender slice of my rotisseried sweet rub pork loin and red onion gravy. Total comfort for the winter.
Did not like this. Bland.
I agree with others, this recipe has a lot of possibilities. I made last night and thought it was a little bland, however husband and son loved it! I'll keep in my box of options, but I may play with this one a bit.
This was a bit bland. I used canned asparagus, though.
Just mashed potatoes with a package of spinach thrown in. Very good, healthy addition to an otherwise unhealthy side.
I thought this was really good! My husband said it was okay, but he's a picky guy. I will be making this again for myself! Thanks for the recipe!
this has to be the most enjoyable recipe that I have.. I made it for some very special people even put it in a special red baking dish and the green spinach just made it look so great.. thanks for sharing with us... I am Planning on making it again very soon....
This is a great recipe to add to. It was lacking in flavor in my opinion. Next time, will roast garlic then mix that in while making the mashed potatos portion. A lovely recipe that can be dressed up or left alone.
Yum! I made quite a few changes to this, and it turned out great! Although I think it would've been good as is, I'm always trying to make things a bit healthier, so I did about half potatoes and half pureed steamed cauliflower. I used part sour cream and part fat free yogurt, cut the butter and salt in half, and totally forgot to add the green onions. I also added most of the cheese in with the casserole rather than just on top, but did sprinkle a bit on the top in the last 5 minutes. Hubby and my one year old gobbled this down! I can truly say that all the changes didn't put a dent in this fantastic tasting dish! I will definitely make it again.
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and it went over very well. Not a bad way to get spinach in those non-spinach eaters. This recipe is a keeper!
This was absolutely scrumptious!!! I could have made a meal out this dish alone. The only slight change I made was to use 1/4 cup sour cream and 3/4 cup low fat yogurt instead of all sour cream to save on the fat content. It looked and tasted great. Thanks so much Lisa
My husband said these are the best potatoes I ever made. I made the mashed as I normally would and doubled the green onion. I also cooked it the entire time with the cheese on it.
This was great!
The family loved this! Easy to add to for variety.
My brother is a "particular" eater, and he LOVES this dish, whenever I'm around he requests it. I love it because it is tasty, filling, nutritious, inexpensive and quick to make. I have changed it a little though, I add a thawed pie shell on top and sprinkle it with some paprika and a little more cheese, doing this I find gives the dish more flavour and is more satisfying.
Different, but good.Nice way to get kids to eat spinach!
