Sally's Spinach Mashed Potatoes
This was one of my mother's best recipes. It is very quick, easy and delicious. A good way for the little ones to eat their spinach!

I made this for Thanksgiving this year and everybody loved it. I had a bag of fresh spinach so I sauteed it with some garlic and onions in a small amount of olive oil. I also mixed the cheddar cheese into the potato mixture instead of on top and it made for a better presentation of the dish. I felt it was a tad on the dry side so next time I make it I'll try red potatoes since they make the creamiest mashed potatoes, or I'll add a small amount of milk to the recipe. Update: I originally did this review back in 2008 and have made this many times. Two things that are really good that I wanted to share that I have since tried with this recipe is the addition of crumbled bacon bits and green onions instead. And on another occasion I have topped with Frenches onions pieces and that was a hit. Just FYI.Read More

FREAKIN' AWESOME! I used spinach dip just because it was handy instead of the spinach and sour cream seperately. I added a little bit of garlic as well. Definitely worth making again!
This is a very unique recipe and a crowd pleaser. The only thing I added was topping this casserole dish with French's French Fried Onions during the last 5 mins of cooking time. My family loves it!!
What a comforting dish. I made a small portion of this since it was just my husband and I. It was beyond outstanding. We finished the entire thing and my husband raved on and on about it. I added just a touch of garlic to the mix to suit our taste, but it would have been excellent without it. I think green onions would have also been excellent in this dish. I am already planning to make this one a staple on my holiday table. It is a dish I will be proud to serve. Thank you for this very delicious recipe!
This was an absolute hit! Amazing! I replaced the frozen spinach with fresh sauteed in garlic, and omitted the cheese- why make veggies fattening and casserole-like? But oh so good- thank you!! =)
My husband is getting anti spinach, after always being a spinach eater! I made these and he just loved them! The only change I made in the recipe is that I used instant mashed potato's (enough) for 8 servings, added some granulated garlic and onion powder to the mix. Then I sprayed 2 small quart casseroles with non stick spray and froze one casserole for later! Yum-O this is a great recipe for adults too!
Funny, when I was a kid, I used to mix my spinach with my mashed potatoes on my plate....! Anyway, great recipe. I omit the dill and add a bit of fresh ground nutmeg. Some spinach recipes often call for nutmeg.
Excellent - rich and creamy, with a slight tang from the sour cream. I cut the butter to 1/4 c. and used less cheese to try to cut the calories a bit, and it was still great. Goes very well with fish.
I had to give this 5 stars because this ended up tasting WAY better than I thought it did. If anyone is health-conscious I made a few choices that greatly lowered the calories & fat without sacrificing taste. Instead of frozen spinach I wilted fresh spinach with 2 cloves of garlic in a non-stick pan. I completely omitted the butter and sour cream and added half a cup of milk instead. I also used about half a cup of cheese instead... still turned out delicious and beautiful.
Delicious! These have to be one of the best mashed potatoes ever. They are creamy (I even used less butter and low fat sour cream) and just heavenly. The only change I made was to use fresh spinach and add a clove of garlic, because I had a whole bag to use up, but other than that I kept them the same. The addition of the dill is perfect, so make sure not to skip it. These are definitely going into my rotation (and the pefect way to get the guys to eat their spinach). Thanks for sharing!
These were really good, got rave reviews at dinner from friends that were over. I did add the frenchs onion on the top as suggested by someone else.
This is a great new (to me) way to make mashed potatoes! We really enjoyed them. I scaled this down to two servings using fresh spinach, green onion and omitting the dill weed. I sautéed my spinach with some minced garlic in a little EVOO. I mashed the potatoes with the butter and sour cream and allowed them to cool to room temperature before folding in the remaining ingredients, including the cheese. I didn’t want the cheese to turn my potatoes the color of orange sherbet so cooling them took care of that. Worked just great! I made these early in the afternoon, using individual ramekins and drizzled them with a little additional melted butter, covered and refrigerated them until it was time to re-heat. I am thinking these would be great for entertaining, as I’m sure they could be made at least a day in advance. Terrific recipe!! Thank you Gail Kane!
WOW! IS THIS TO DIE FOR. I DID MAKE A FEW CHANGES AFTER READING SOME OF THE REVIEWS. I LEFT OUT THE CHEESE, DILL AND SUBSTITUTED GREEN ONIONS FOR REGULAR ONIONS, AND USED FRESH SPINACH SAUTEED WITH BUTTER AND ROASTED GARLIC. I HAVE FINALLY FOUND A NEW WAY TO SERVE BORING POTATOES. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS DISH TO ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM THE SAME OLD MASHED POTATOES. THANK YOU, THANK YOU
FANTASTIC! Made exactly as written, except I did add more onion than called for, added some green onion in there and boiled 3-4 cloves of garlic w/ the potatoes. So simple to make...I actually put this together yesterday and baked it today w/ great results. Hubby said that this is one of the best potato dishes that he has had, and I agree. This will be a new staple at our house, for sure~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
Sorry for such a bad review because I really hoped this worked out. Very bland. Sorry
This is very good . Made as directed the first time , using fresh spinach , sauteed , and drained . The second time made , added 6 whole cloves of garlic to the potatoes , as they boiled . Used fresh spinach , sauteed with 6 sliced green onions . Drained the spinach well , and mixed in with the mashed potatoes and garlic . Cut the butter to 1/4 c. , and stirred 1 c. cheese in with the potato , spinach mixture . Sprinkled the rest of the cheese on top . Will make again for sure !
We enjoyed this. It seemed a little more fancy than your average mashed potato side with minimal effort. I added a little milk too to thin it a bit so it would be more friendly for our toddler. I think next time I will sautee the onions with the spinach before adding since it suits my taste better. Thanks for the recipe!
Wow, awesome! I have to admit I didn't expect much, but we really liked this (even my husband who reallyjust wanted plain mashed potatoes). I halved the recipe for the two of us. I sauteed fresh spinach with the onions and some fresh garlic, added the dill to the spinach, used half the amount of cheese (some mixed in and some on top); also added some pepper. Covered while cooking the first 15 minutes then uncovered the last 5 minutes to allow the cheese to brown just a little. Will make again and again.
VERY delicious , the only thing for me was that it was too oily at the end ..leaked a little bit outside the pyrex and inside the dish i had little oil ponds , i took off with a small spoon ..So next time i do this i will put less butter and add up few different spices that i like .. fresh ground black pepper maybe a little nutmeg and paprika ..might add some cheddar inside the dish as well as the top too since it gives a very yummy flavor .. thanks a lot for sharing the recipe This is my second review and i actually forgot that i had already reviewed this recipe , i wish i had remembered , because it was way TOO OILY this time again ,please do the half of the butter , believe me it's enough..ok, next time ! i will add 1/4 cup olive oil in stead of 1/2 cup butter .but will still do it , good besides that ! i add cheese in the mixture too , yummy
Wow! I finally got my 5 year old to like something with spinach in it!! (Just in time to start picking some from the garden!) I didn't add the cheddar as I was out and next time, I think I'll try this with 1/2 the butter and 1/2 the sour cream (without baking) just to make it healthier, but for a once-in-awhile decadent side dish, make it as is!
I added 1 clove of minced garlic, otherwise followed recipe. They were good but I would like a little more flavor. Next time I will add some chopped green onions. Will be making these again.
Very interesting combination, that was very good!! Great way to use those leftover mashed potatoes!
For someone who is not a fan of mashed potatoes, I was licking the pan! I also found out how much I love cooked spinach which I was unaware of! My changes were these.... I used Greek yogurt as a healthy substitute to sour cream, margarine instead of butter, green onions, and cooked bacon. I also added some garlic salt and onion powder to taste and left out dill weed as a personal preference. I also used instant mashed potatoes since I was short on time. Basic flavors were not changed much and this was outstanding! Thanks for sharing this simple and fast recipe!
What a wickedly clever idea, with unlimited possibilities! (This is in the oven now.) I had a container of prepared mashed potatoes, fried 3 strips of bacon, and then sauteed my onion and some garlic in the drippings. (Accidently cut up almost 1 cup of onion, but more's the merrier.) I also added an egg for some puffiness. Used colby-jack cheese, as that was what I had and topped it with some parmesan. Can't wait to dig in. Tasted as I went along, and it smells yummy!
I think i tried to make this recipe too healthy by using fat free sour cream, cutting butter to 1/4c. and eliminating cheese. I also didn't have dill on hand so used basil. It was good but not great.
Yummie!!!! Wonderful....I used fresh spinach leaves and sauteed in olive oil with the chopped onion and 2 cloves of crushed garlic till tender. Then followed recipe. My daughter loved loved loved!!!!
Even better reheated in the oven!
Another incident of "we didn't have everything so I changed a few ingredients around." I used 1/4 cup margarine instead of butter, 5 ounces of evaporated milk instead of sour cream, a few shakes of onion powder instead of chopped onion, and I used some parmesan and mozzarella instead of cheddar. I boiled the spuds for 14 minutes and then steamed the spinach in the potato pot while I mashed the potatoes in a bowl. It turned out yummy (not to mention better for us!), and went well with the Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff off this site. Yum! Thanks for sharing, Gail. I was almost able to convince my daughter to eat spinach...
I left the dill out, like some of the others did. Broiled for 3 mins at the end to make the cheese bubble. Delicious!
I thought this was good, but I would make a few alterations. I would add a little half & half or milk to the potatoes so they arent quite as dry. Plus, I would also add a little parmesean cheese. I did add green onions and will do so again. My husband thought bacon would be perfect, because then it would have all the components of a loaded baked potato or twice baked potato. Even with a bit of tweeking or embellishment--it is very good.
Danger, Will Robinson! These are SO good, I could eat the whole pan. Change nothing with this recipe; it's perfect as is.
This was a really nice recipe. I also used fresh spinach and sautéed it with the onion and some garlic. Will definitely make again! Thanks for the recipe.
This is so good just as written that we had this twice in one week! Thanks Gail (and Sally?) for a new favorite.
What a nice change from regular mashed potatoes! I used unpeeled red potatoes, and added a little more dill. Just lovely! Perfect blend of flavors and very pretty. Thank you Gail!
Love love love. Always looking for a new twist on favorite dishes. I did mix the cheese in rather than put it on top. I will add garlic next time. If using frozen spinach make sure you get as much water out as possible
I have made this recipe several times, usually (per others' reviews) with garlic added to the boiling potatoes, fresh spinach, and added crumbled bacon. It always gets the ultimate praise--yummy sounds from the hubs. It makes a lot, so I usually add the cheddar to only one meal's worth at a time, which is a great thing. Today I discovered that the leftovers (made without cheese) can be made into fantastic spinach gnocchi!!!! Warm the potatoes a little, then use the proportions and directions in Sandy's "Quick gnocchi" from this site. I'd never have had the guts to try making spinach gnocchi from scratch before, but using this recipe with Sandy's, they are easy easy and delicious! Thanks to the allrecipes community for making me cook like a rock star, or feel like one, anyway.
Fantastic...Fresh spinach instead of frozen. Garlic.....
This is one of my go-to side dishes any time we're serving beef. My entire family loves these, and the kids don't even complain about eating their spinach! I sometimes whip the potatoes using my hand mixer for an almost souffle like texture.
This was very good. I do think next time I will cook some fresh spinach. I added some of the cheese right in with the potatoes and put the rest on top. Will make this again. Thanks Gail!
I halved the recipe and followed the recipe exactly (with the slight exception of using dehydrated onions.) Everyone liked this including the kids. I'm thinking that next time I might mix the mashed potatoes first and then lightly stir in the spinach at the end. I found with mixing the sour cream and spinach made everything green tinged instead...just not as attractive as some of the pictures that are posted. Good recipe!
delicious! I have a little brother who never eats spinach, and it wasn't even noticed in this recipe! Thanks!
Absolutely delicious! I love mashed potatoes with butter and sour cream; and I love spinach so I knew this would be a winner with me. I boiled the russet potatoes in chicken stock with fresh garlic for added flavor. I mashed the potatoes (with the garlic) and set it aside. I sauteed 1 bag of organic spinach in a little butter with garlic. Added it to the mashed russet potatoes. I omitted the dill weed completely. I added a little more butter to the mashed potatoes and all the rest of the ingredients (sour cream, cheddar cheese, green onions, etc). After I seasoned the mashed potatoes with salt and mixing everything I topped it off with more cheddar cheese. I was so pleased with the results. What a delicious comforting dish! I loved the spinach mixed in the mashed potatoes. The sour cream always adds creaminess with butter mixed in. This went nicely with the," Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast, "also from this website."
Good idea but I made changes. First I used container of refrigerated potatoes(didn't have any others). Microwaved them for a couple of minutes. I sauted package of fresh baby spinach, onion and clove of chopped garlic in some butter then mixed with the rest of ingredients, topped with a mixture of shredded cheeses and baked. I also cut the amount of butter in half and used fat free sour cream.
Who would have thought that something with this much spinach could taste so good?!?! I used a whole package of spinach, even though it looked like a lot, 7 medium sized potatoes, 1/2 cup butter 1 small container of sour cream. 2 chopped green onions, 2 cloves garlic. I chose not to put any dill in it. I had no cheddar, so I put 4 Kraft singles on top, covered with some crumbled goat feta, and baked at 400 for about 30 minutes along with a huge fillet of salmon. Absolutely amazing and everyone loved it!
I really liked this. Some people said it tasted too much like spinach; I didn't think so but I like spinach. I added a lot more dill than th recipe calls for - I just kept adding and tasting till I liked the taste. I made it the day before and then took it out of the fridge about 1/2 hour before cooking it. Topped with the cheese and baked for about 1/2 hour ... maybe a little longer. Even though I liked it I doubt I'd make it again.
I followed the recipe exactly and believe me I am definitly not opposed to rich foods but there was WAAAAY too much butter and sour cream, I ended up with soggy potatoe goop and I made sure to use 6 decent sized potatoes and added an extra potatoe!and then the extra grease from the melted cheese on top was just too much!!! there is a good recipe in here though just make sure to add a little of the butter and sour cream at a time.. to suit your taste.
Good, but probably won't make again as these ingredients could probably come together and make something much tastier with a few tweaks. I used cottage cheese made into sour cream (dieter's faux sour cream), added a pinch or two of nutmeg, had a little bit of blue cheese that needed to be used so I tossed that in too and a bit of panko on top. I chose to mix my cheese into the potato-spinach mixture.
I had more spinach than potatoes. I used two cans of potatoes and 1 can of spinach. I tried this recipe because I was looking for something for my son to eat after having spacers put in. I added garlic, onion, paprika and pepper. Instead of using cheddar I mixed in parmesan cheese. It is soft enough that if my son feels like swallowing it whole, he can. Thank you for a creative recipe.
Too much sour cream! I'm Polish and when a Pole says too much sour cream, it's too much. LOL! I'll be cutting that back to 1/4 c or 2 TBSP. I am not a fan of dill and followed a previous commenter's advice and subbed bacon (!) instead. I also added a smidge of chopped onion and cut down on the butter. I know my family, I also halved the spinach. It's a good starting point to shape into your own vision and I plan to tinker with this. It's a nice change of pace from ordinary mashed pots.
I almost entirely eliminated the sour cream and used 1/2 and 1/2. It was excellent!
I have to confess - I altered this recipe so much, that its not REALLY fair to rate it - but I am sure its fabulous as written and it inspired me to do the following: I cooked fresh spinach from the garden and potatoes seperately, then mashed and mixed them together with a knob of butter and a little milk, two eggs, grated chesse and nutmeg. It was fabulous -we loved it!!!
Great tators! This makes a nice filling side dish. As with all recipes that have spinach in them, I normally always cut the spinach in half so there isn't an overpowering amount of it for our tastes. It was perfect! Instead of onion, I used green onion and added a dash of garlic powder too. So good! My husband loved these and kept asking me to make them again. They are so flavorful, no gravy needed! Thanks for the great recipe! This is a keeper! Update: I cannot tell you how many times my husband asks for these, even several years later from first trying this recipe. It is his favorite side dish now. I normally just make them by heart now and don't follow a recipe and just add everything in by a dash here and dash there until I get them the way I want them to taste at that time. I usually serve these individual style for each person and bake them in an individual small ramekin dish to put that special added touch to an excellent side dish with a meal. Thank you again for sharing this wonderful recipe!
These were delicious, thank you for the recipe!
Some reviewers complained that this recipe was too bland, but I cooked my potatoes in salted water and added the spices according to taste (did not measure), so I felt the casserole had plenty of flavor. I cooked a 10 oz. bag of fresh spinach rather than use frozen. I would make this recipe again.
I REALLY liked this and I can see myself making it often, especially for special occasions (Thanksgiving, etc). I did make a few changes -- I reduced the amount of butter by half (& added an extra half-teaspoon of salt to compensate), plus a half-teaspoon or so of black pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg. I also used low-fat sour cream and about half the amount of cheese. Next time I'd like to try a different cheese, perhaps Gruyere... mmmm. I might try grating the onion next time instead of chopping it, and I might also double the spinach and reduce the potatoes a bit. I love recipes like this in which one can make endless variations!
No rating since I modified. Used steamed, chopped kale, a bit of garlic, !/4 cup Greek yoghurt instead of sour cream and 1/4 cup light cream cheese. It was delish! Gonna give it four stars just for the idea which ditto sounds great.
Absolutely delicious! I made this for two people, so I went down to two big russet potatoes, half a cup of sour cream, same amount of onion and two tablespoons or so of butter. I used 2/3rds of a bag of spinach and this made it super spinachy. I skipped the dill and also used a nice English sharp cheddar. My husband and I both loved it.
Very good and quick dish - I had to make some modifications, because I did not have enough potatoes (I added aotmeal), but it turned out very tasty and filling.
Very good and will definitely make again! Only thing is for 6 potatoes, 1 tsp of salt is nothing. I will definitely add more salt next time (I guess that is my latin culture creeping out!).
Great recipe. I left out the dill because I did not have any but didn't replace it with any other seasoning so I though they were a little bland-my fault. I think I will make them again and throw in some bacon bits this time!
This is really good as is. However, next time I will try it with fresh wilted spinach.
This may be a good option to get little kids to eat their spinach, but it doesn't work as well for adults. Without the spinach, this would have been an excellent mashed potato dish, however the spinach left a nagging flavor on your tongue after each bite. You couldn't really tell what you were tasting, but you knew it wasn't good.
Very tasty, though I thought it would come out more like a casserole...but that was my mistake. :) I put some of the cheese in halfway through transferring the potatoes to the casserole dish, which was nice.
Holy cow! The only bad thing about this is that it could ruin my diet! I couldn't stop eating it. I added some chives to the potato mix, but otherwise kept it the same. Next time, I might mix some cheddar cheese into the potato mixture, too. Very good, whole family (two picky teenagers and a picky preteen) LOVED it, and so did my husband!
Very good! I incorporate veggies into every meal and this is such a good, easy way to do it! I think I'll sprinkle some bacon bits on top next time.
I used fresh spinach that I sauteed in a bit of the butter with some fresh minced garlic and a little more chopped onion. I used reduced fat cheddar cheese and organic red potatoes. We thought this was good but I think it would have been bland had I not thought to add in the garlic and extra onion. I really liked this but my family was just not digging it. Next time, I think I'd like to add a little more spices, like maybe dry ranch seasoning.
These were pretty dang good! I added a little bit of garlic. They also made fantastic potato pancakes this morning as leftovers!
These are EXCELLENT and loaded with flavor! They're everything a stand-alone potato dish should be. I used fresh baby spinach and sautéed it a skillet with a bit of olive oil and kosher salt until wilted. Huge, huge hit!
I thought these tasted pretty good and even better than I expected them to be. I followed the recipe, but lightened it up a bit by adding only half the amount of butter and sour cream. I also used low fat sour cream. I cooked the spinach in the microwave, covered, for 5 minutes, in 1" of water. I let it cool, drained it, squeezed out the water, and then added it to the potatoes. I ended up using 5 large russets for the 6 potatoes and used a blender to mash them to make them more creamy. Per another persons suggestions, that made the recipe, I put half of the cheese in with the mashed potatoes. The only down side to the recipe is they take some time to make and dirty quite a few dishes. They are creamy, when blended with a beater, and filling. I would just consider reducing the salt, by at least 1/4 tsp., as it is quite a bit.
This is a new favorite of mine. To die for. I used mostly olive oil with a bit of butter and light sour cream and fresh baby spinach. Then I used my immersion blender. After it was done I added some extra chopped onion and dill. Was even better the next day after being refrigerated over night.
THANK YOU GAIL!!!!! This was SOOOO delicious. I made a few changes to suit my taste. I doubled the dill and still couldn't taste it. Wondering if it was just super subtle flavor that I would miss if it wasn't there. I also used 16 oz of fresh spinach that I chopped in the food processor and then used the butter to saute the spinach. Reduced a lot of the liquid out of the spinach as I was afraid it would make the potatoes watery if I didn't get some of the liquid out. I wouldn't have minded omitting the step of chopping the fresh spinach. But I wanted my 6 year old to try this dish and I knew the bigger pieces/strands would be difficult for her. I also cut way down on the butter. About 1/4 cup, but could easily cut that down even more. I used really purple onion, which added a strong flavor plus a pop of color, about a 1/4 cup worth. I don't really think the cheese (extra sharp cheddar) added anything to the dish with it being on top. Will be making this dish again and adding cheese (maybe cut amount in half) mixed into the potatoes instead. I could also see how this dish would be a great base to add other vegetables. I want to make it again and add mushrooms. But could imagine so many other vegetables being added well to this! Definitely making it again. The entire family loved this dish!
This was fantastic! I sauteed onion and garlic and wilted fresh spinach. Really versatile side dish. Thank you Sally
These were excellent, will definitely make again!!! Used fresh spinach, was awesome.
Very tasty :) Fried the onions a little before adding them and instead of topping with cheese layered the cheese between the potatoes. No sour cream where I live so I just used cream. Reading the other reviews I have to add garlic ... was tempted to but didn't dare it. Served with chicken! Yummy!
Very nice update to basic mashed potatoes! Added a touch of garlic and used plain yogurt instead of sour cream since that was what I had on hand. Will probably tinker with the spices a little more to suit our tastes but definately worth repeating. Thanks!
even better the 2nd time: Added mix of cheeses to topping (Parm, Ched, Moz, Asagio all shredded).
Made reduced amt for 2, using combo of red and yellow potatoes, fresh spinach and FF sour cream, garlic salt , a green onion and whipped butter. Topped with a sprinkle of truffle salt and Italian blend cheese .... really really good! Sent from my iPad
This is so yummy! I used low fat yogurt instead of sour cream since I didn't have any, and it turned out great! I'll be making this one again, and even seeing if my spinach-hating husband would try it.
These were delicious! I sauteed a 9 ounce bag of fresh spinach with 8 cloves of garlic and a yellow onion before adding it to the potatoes.
Oh, this was SO GOOD!!! I modified with bacon grease in lieu of the butter and added some Mrs. Dash (no salt), and left the potatoes cubed. This dish is now a staple!
Simply divine. Used red potatoes (didn't peel them) and a fresh bunch of spinach. Sauteed medium chopped onion in butter till tender, added spinach and cooked just till wilted. Added minced garlic to the potatoes while boiling which game them a deep, savory garlic flavor.. Mixed in quite of bit of shredded Longhorn cheddar as well as some on top. Oh, and I wouldn't skip the dill--the dill gives it quite an extraordinary unique kick. This is definitely a keeper!
I would give this 10 stars if I could! I had only fresh spinach so I sauted some red onion and wilted the spinach in it. I also mixed in the cheese since I did not read the instructions carefully enough. I almost did not have enough left to put in the oven haha!
Very good. My husband, who is used to eating at fine restaurants on business and is fussy when he gets home said it was delicious! We served this with grilled salmon and it went well together.
These were better than I thought they would be. I mixed the cheese in with the spinach/potato mixture instead of putting it on top, used 3 green onions and added cracked pepper. I also sprinkled bread crumbs on the top before baking. Next time I think I will cut the butter in half. Don't think it really adds anything to it except extra fat and calories.
Not enough flavor.
I made these potatoes for dinner last night and they were delicious. I added garlic powder, onion flakes and french fried onions to the top of the dish. I also microwaved the spinach till softened. Will make again.
This was very good. The only thing I changed was to use fresh spinach, lowfat sour cream and fresh dill. I made this as a side to christined's Best Ever Brisket. I will be making this again.
Very good. I took the advice of some reviewers and sauteed a bit of garlic with my fresh spinach and mixed some of the cheese in the potato mixture. We had it with ham but it could be a meatless entree as it's filling enough.
Very good dish. I didn't include the dill so I put garlic powder in.
Loved this with pork - will try with fish. Easy, easy, easy and flavorful
This was okay. It was not a "hit" with our family but it was a nice spin on sweet potatoes. If I do this again, since it was a little dry, I would cook it a shorter amount of time and add generous amounts of sour cream and cheese (at least 2 cups of cheese)
Quite good. Very quick. Not sure if this a good thing or not but you can hardly taste the spinach!
It was ok. I'll probably never make it again. I had leftovers for DAYS and it just seemed like it would NOT end. Lol.
I AM THE POTATO QUEEN AND I APPROVE OF THIS RECIPE.
I made this for my aunt and uncle as part of a thank you dinner and they loved it. My uncle even took the leftovers for lunch the next day.
Really good! Pretty much followed recipe with a few suggestions from others. Boiled the potatoes with 2 cloves of garlic. Added a pinch of nutmeg and cayanne and black pepper, and 2 chopped green onions. Used only 1/4 c. of butter and added 1/2 c. milk because the potatoes seemed dry. Reduced salt to 1/2 tsp. I stirred in the cheese instead of on top and added 3 Tb. parmasan cheese. They tasted so good as is I didn't bother to cook in the oven. Some bacon would have been great but didn't want to fool with the mess from cooking it. Served with some kilbasa. Will definitely make again.
You can reduce the fat out of this recipe and add more vegetables in if desired. I wouldn't cut down on the butter though. I used half the sour cream and cheese adding in other veggies and was a wonderful side dish and pretty. Family loved it.
These were amazing! I used instant potatoes and it was still wonderful and it shaved a ton of time off of the recipe. I will definitely be making this again. Be sure if you use instant potatoes that you follow the box directions and then don't add the salt, milk, or butter that the recipe calls for.
