Ready In:
1hr 15mins




  • Peel potatoes, cut in half and drop into cold water.
  • Drain and place in a large saucepan and cover with hot water.
  • Cover Saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and continue boiling gently, partially covered until potatoes are tender, about 20 to 30 minutes. Mash with a potato masher. Stir in butter, sour cream, salt and pepper.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Wash fresh spinach leaves. Place wet leaves in a microwave-safe dish, cover and microwave on high until just wilted, from 2 to 3 minutes. Or place in a wide saucepan and stir over medium heat just until wilted, about 5 minutes. When cool enough, squeeze handfuls of spinach until dry. Coarsely chop and place in a medium size bowl.
  • Combine the spinach, garlic and feta cheese.
  • Stir spinach mixture into potatoes.
  • Spoon into buttered dish swirling top slightly.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered until golden and a knife inserted in center feels warm, 40-50minutes.

    I wasn't so thrilled with this recipe--It tasted like regular mashed potatoes. One of the good points about this is that it has spinach which is so good for you, but you cannot taste it, and therefore my 2 year old will eat it without a problem.

    Smashed instead of mashed, added extra cream and a cup of peas for a vegetarian main. Perfect.

    Ok, so let me start by saying my Mom and her siblings from out of country were at my place for dinner. I had never made this dish. I doubled it cause of the amount of guests I had and OH MY! SOOOO good! My Mom even hugged me for this dish. I made it in the morning, covered it and refrigerated it. Cooked it as directed and it was DIVINE. Thank you, I will be making this again and again:)

    The family enjoyed this recipe. I used less feta as I only had about 1 cup and I used asiago cheese instead of the parmesan.

    I actually made this to give to someone, so I just got to have a small taste, let me tell you this is a fabulous dish! I did reduce the feta slightly only because I was not making this for myself, this makes a huge casserole! I can't wait to make this again soon for my family! Thanks Nims!...Kitten:)

I was one of the original members of Recipezaar that was truly a community of individuals that enjoyed each other in forums and chat rooms. I've been a member of this site since 2003. Made some tremendous friends that I still think of often. I'll continue coming here because my recipes are here and so many more that I tried over the years as a member. It's just a tad boring now and just another recipe site like all the rest. Sad.
