Yummy! Veggie hating dd loved it and veggie loving ds gobbled up 2 portions...and he is only 15 months old. :) I cut the recipe in half, and used 2 tablespoons of smart balance spread instead of butter in the casserole and sauteed the onion and garlic in EVOO. I used half 2% milk cheddar and part skim mozzarella. I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour and baked this for exactly an hour. It was a great side dish to compliment the honey mustard chicken I made, the best part was that the leftovers made a great breakfast. This is a keeper for sure, thanks so much for sharing!
Really good. I sauteed the onions and garlic in olive oil instead of butter. Left out the flour and used half cheddar and half mozzarella. Next time I'm going to add something to give it a bit of a spicy kick.
Use green onion and 2 eggs, gluten free flour. This might have been in Parade magazine but it was a popular home recipe in the early 70s. I learned to make it from a family friend. It looks good. Make sure you squeeze spinach very dry.
