I've been making this for DW for years. Remember to drain the spinach by squeezing in a towel. For company, I use 4 boxes spinach, add the sour cream with 1/2 box room temp cream cheese, use 1/2 envelope soup mix. Crush 2 cups Pepperidge Farm regular stuffing mix. Sprinkle one cup in bottom of casserole and one cup on top. Looks much better and adds a crunchy creamy texture our family loves with less sodium.
I made this for a Thanksgiving potluck at church. At the end, only one spoonful was taken. I brought it home and my husband tried it and loved it! It was not pretty, but was very good. I think next time I will put cheese on top so that people will eat it, but at home we will continue to make it like the recipe says.
This recipe was a huge hit at our house! I added a bit of freshley grated parmesan to the top.
Wow! Wow! Wow! This was absolutely delicious! My husband, who, in ten years, I have never seen eat spinach, loved this (and so did I). I loved that it was so simple to make, and, yet, is was just fabulous...even company-worthy! I did not have packaged onion soup mix on hand, so I used Copycat Lipton Onion Soup Mix Copycat Lipton's Onion Soup Mix, and it worked perfectly with this. This is going to be my new staple fancy spinach recipe, for special occasions, or any occasion. Thanks for sharing such a gem!
As a casserole this was just O.K. In fact my husband said he would much prefer plain spinach. However as a quesadilla filling the next day it was OUTSTANDING. I just needed to use a little sprinkle of low fat cheese - not much at all - and they were some of the best quesadillas I've made.
This was just ok for me. I wasn't thrilled with it, I felt that the sour cream gave it an off flavor. I may make this again with half and half and the soup mix. I loved the simplicity of it though.
Really tasty and so simple. I halved the recipe and it worked fine. Thanks for sharing.
This is exactly what I needed when I was in a crunch with not much food in the house and not much time to prepare. I'm not a huge fan of frozen spinach, but the onion soup mix added a whole lot of flavor. I only used 2 packages of spinach as that's all I had, so mine was rich and creamy, which I liked. Thanks for such an easy to throw together side!
I have been using this recipe for 20 years, and everyone always loves it. It doesn't get any easier then this.
