Spinach Gratin

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sackville

I think this is the perfect side dish to something like my Pork Chop Melts (#70596). It is very impressive when you bring it bubbling to the table.

Really enjoyed this. Used kang kong [an Asian green] instead of spinach which made it slightly more mustardy. Definitely worth trying.
