River Road Spinach Madeleine

River Road Spinach Madeleine created by BarbryT

This is my adaptation of the recipe in the River Road Recipes cookbook from the Junior League of Baton Rouge, La. This has been around at least since the 1960's and is still a favorite. It tastes better the next day after it is made. It freezes beautifully.

    One of my family's favorites! We been serving this a every holiday dinner and special event without fail for over 40 years. Even those who aren't ordinary spinach eaters will love this. We know good food in New Orleans, and this recipe is from our region. The more we make, the bigger the portions seem to get. We almost always run out.

    Fantastic recipe! I've been making this for 25 years! I was extremely unhappy when they stopped making jalapeno cheese rolls,and instead of Monterrey jack pepper cheese, I've also used Mexican Velveeta cheese.I do double the recipe, and have no problems with that. Family asked for it, yet again, so I will be making it for the 26th year, this Christmas...:)

    I make this every Thanksgiving and Christmas. I cook the spinach in the microwave---to save some time (two packs of spinach for 15 min. on high). Otherwise, I follow the recipe exactly. My sons love this dish. Thanks for posting.
