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!

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!

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.

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.

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

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!!
