      So I actually enjoyed spinach--- really. Smoked gouda is the best, isn't it? Good luck to you.

      3 stars I wanted to fiddle with this recipe as I made it, but restrained myself to stay true to the contest. I am having a piece of it now. First off, I feel it needed more shallots, or some onion - anyway - definitely more of something of the lily family. The cream sauce. Recipe didn't specify to cook the flour in the butter a bit, but I think it would help in improving the flavour. To our tastes, definitely needed more salt than the max 1/2 teaspoon suggested by the recipe. I added a teaspoon and it's fine for this amount. I baked the spinach for a half an hour as it wasn't set enough after 15-20 minutes. Also, when I served it, water seeped out underneath onto my plate - this will be a deterrent in my kid's eating it in a while. Perhaps the frozen spinach should also be squeezed by hand to remove more moisture, rather than just draining, or something could be added to absorb excess liquid? Kind of like creamed spinach and kind of like a souffle. Tastes good, but needs some work.
