Main ingredients

frozen spinach – With the help of frozen spinach, this side dish becomes even easier to whip up. Simply buy two pounds of frozen spinach (2 16-ounce bags) at the store for this recipe. Then, to thaw the spinach, place it in a colander in the sink and run it under cold water. The frozen pieces will begin to break apart and within seconds the spinach will be completely thawed. The last and most important step is to squeeze as much moisture out of the spinach as possible. Too much water in the saucepan could cause a thick, smooth mess. Next, squeeze the thawed spinach into your hands, letting the water run off before adding it to the bowl with the rest of the ingredients.

plain breadcrumbs – Breadcrumbs give this spinach and cheese casserole an unexpected crunch! You can sprinkle all of the breadcrumbs with the mixture from the saucepan, or reserve half to sprinkle on top. Be sure to use plain breadcrumbs, this casserole is flavorful enough and doesn’t need any additional ingredients, trust me!

chef tips

  • If you prefer, you can use fresh spinach.! For fresh spinach, thinly slice three pounds, then quickly sauté in a skillet until soft. Then rinse and drain the cooked spinach in a colander before using it in this recipe.
  • Feel free to garnish this Cheesy Spinach Casserole with even more cheese if you’d like! A half cup of shredded cheddar cheese tastes great on top of this side dish. If adding cheese, prepare casserole as directed before sprinkling desired cheese on top and cook as directed.
  • Add shredded chicken or leftover turkey for a complete meal! For a quick and easy recipe, add precooked shredded beef to spinach mixture before baking. You’ll have a wholesome, delicious, wholesome dinner ready in just 30 minutes!
