Cheesy Creamed Spinach Madeleine

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 30 mins

This is my Mom's recipe and is a staple at every holiday gathering. She calls it Spinach Madeleine -- we just call it great. You can "heat" it up by using jalepeno cheese or adding jalepeno peppers, which is how my mom usually makes it. Great any time -- not just holidays.
