I just made this yesterday and ate the whole thing myself! I used olive oil instead of butter, and no nutmeg. And since I'm lazy, just threw a handful of (veggie) shredded cheddar into the pan. I'll do the "bake" part for company, Bergy!

This was really good.... my boyfriend loved it. i did change the recipe slightly. I was worried that the chhese on the bottom would burn, so i mixed in some breadcrumbs with the bottom layer of cheese. i only had frozen spinach, so I thawed and drained it. Also, i added a touch of togarashi for a little hint of heat, and i baked it at 300 for about 30 minutes because I was making ribs that needed to cook at that temp. It turned out great! Thanks for sharing another keeper Bergy!

This was really yummy!!! But I must admit that I left out the nutmeg. And I didn't miss the spice. It was enjoyed by everyone in the family. This will be a regular in our house. Thank you!
