This is one of my old stand-by recipes from the More with Less Cookbook. It's a good one for those nights when I don't really feel like cooking. I suppose this is meant to be a side dish, but I always up the amounts a bit and serve it as a meatless main dish. The original recipe calls for the addition of dill seed and chives, but I never use them for our family.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel, cook and mash potatoes.
  2. Add sour cream, salt, pepper (and butter if desired).
  3. Mix in enough milk to bring it to your favorite mashed potato consistency.
  4. Add spinach (and seasonings if desired).
  5. Place in casserole dish and top with grated cheddar cheese. (sometimes I also mix a bit of the cheese in with the potatoes before topping).
  6. Bake in 350 oven for 20-30 minutes.
  7. We like to serve this with corn, which usually ends up mixed in with all the rest.

We normally have just cheesy mash, so I thought that adding some spinach in there would make a nice change. We loved this! It was the perfect side to our steak! Really easy to make and delicious!

YUM! I love spinach, but DF is not too fond of it (along with mushrooms). However, I always find try to find a way to put them in many dishes. He loved these potatoes so much, he asked for seconds! YAH! I only had 2 large russets, 10 oz of frozen spinach, and 1/2 cup colby jack on hand. I made mashed potatoes as I normally would: boil, drain, mash. I added the butter and appropriate milk, continued with sour cream and cheese, salt and pepper. Although I wish I would have had more cheese on hand, I think it turned out great! Even with being 2 potatoes short from the recipe, we still ending up having 5 large servings. It seems like that kind of recipe that as long as you have the basic ingredients, you can fix it up any way you like. Great, love it! I am going to start making it all the time. :)
