Spinach Casserole

Spinach Casserole created by flower7

I don't know where this originally came from. My mom always made it for holiday meals; it turned three spinach-hating kids into three begging-for-spinach kids. It's still, almost 50 years later, a staple at family dinner events.

ingredients

  • 12 cup butter
  • 12 cup flour (matzo cake meal for Passover)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach
  • 12 teaspoon grated onion (or to taste, grated onion goes very far)
  • 12 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (or to taste)
  • 12 cup fine dry breadcrumb (matzo meal, not matzo cake meal, for Passover. This amount is an approximation)

directions

  • Melt butter, blend in flour, salt & pepper, stir and bubble one minute.
  • Remove from heat and stir in milk. Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Boil one minute, stirring.
  • Drop in still frozen spinach and cook until thawed.
  • Season with grated onion and Worcestershire Sauce to taste (approx 1/4 to 1/2 tsp each. Start small and taste as you add. A little goes a long way.).
  • Place in casserole, top with buttered bread crumbs. (Buttered bread crumbs: 2-3 Tbsp butter, melted, pour in fine, dry bread crumbs.).
  • Bake at 325F (or 350F) for at least one hour.
  • Passover 1965 - 8 pkgs spinach, double sauce recipe, made 3 1/2 quarts.
  • Passover 1970 - 6 pkgs spinach, double sauce recipe, made 3 quarts.

    This is very good creamed spinach! I cut the recipe down to 1/2 qt since I'd be the only one eating it and I didn't want a ton of leftovers. Skipped the onion but definitely used the Worcestershire. I also used skim milk. I didn't realize until after I'd thawed it that the spinach was supposed to be left frozen but it still worked out fine. I baked at 325 for 50 min (it was bubbling like mad!) and it was perfect. Served alongside recipe #297197 and it was an excellent combination. Thanks for sharing your family recipe!
