    Geema's Note:

    I developed this recipe to lure my kids into eating spinach. It worked! Spinach in almost any form is one of their favorite veggies. Big "kids" enjoy these rich, filling potatoes as well, and I often make them for dinner parties. I haven't tried freezing them, but I imagine you could make a batch and stick them in the freezer to keep for another day.

      These are excellent! Even my non spinach eaters liked these. Thanks for a great recipe! Editing to add: I have successfully made and frozen these for OAMC. I assemble up to step 8. I then place on a baking sheet and place in freezer until firm. Then transfer to a freezer bag and seal. To cook them, I thaw in the fridge overnight and then top with remaining cheese and bake as directed.

      Excellent - I have made a simlar potato without the spinach. This was a really nice change. I omitted the milk and used fresh spinach - very nice

      Geema, these are wonderful. I fixed them last weekend while having a guest and served them with Filet Mignon in Merlot Sauce and a salad. Fantastic, we'll have them again and again. For years my husband would not hear of me fixing spinach, but once he tasted the "real" thing, versus school cateria stuff, he loves it. Thanks for an excellent recipe.
