Fantastic Creamed Spinach Gratin

"A perfect side dish to your holiday meal, even people who hate spinach will love this dish! --- this should serve 8 people depending on the size of the portions -- the complete recipe may be made up to 24 hours in advance, cover and refrigerate, allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking --- if you prefer a milder spinach flavor then boil the spinach in water for about 8 minutes before using in the recipe."

    Halved the recipe for the two of us. Used gruyere cheese, also for the topping. The minor change I made was adding some grated nutmeg when I mixed it because we like that with spinach. Will make this again because we both enjoyed it very much and I like it that it can be prepared in advance. Thank you!

    I made this for Thanksgiving because I wanted to try something new, and boy am I glad I did! It's so tasty...and leftovers are even better heated up the next day! My husband, who doesn't TOUCH vegetables, loved this! Thanks.

    You've done it again! I took this to our family Thanksgiving and it was plenty. I baked it in a 9x13 cake pan, used sweet onions chopped fine, gruyere cheese, whipping cream and 2% milk. It was delicious. Thanks, Kittencal for another great recipe. Carole in Orlando
