Recipe by shelbyrose

A delicious casserole that has a surprise spinach layer in addition to the traditional ham and potatoes. All baked in a delicious cheesy sauce.

Mmmm, this was creamy goodness! Right off the bat, I've got to say that I had no spinach in the house. We thought it was just fine without the spinach. I added a couple little things here and there: finely chopped shallots in the butter (before adding the flour to make the roux), and for the milk I used a combo of cream, chicken broth and milk. I added chives and Tabasco, and salt and pepper to the casserole. I was happy to find this great entree because I had no eggs or sour cream, and many other ham casseroles called for those. This one is a winner!
