I grew up eating this at most of the family holiday’s with the maternal side of my family. But, we called it spinach casserole. As a child, I hated spinach, and no, it don’t not matter that Popeye ate all of his. As far as I was concerned, we could send him mine as well. I, would take a spoon full of the cheese and mushrooms.
1 lb fresh mushrooms
2 packages frozen spinach
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup melted butter
serves 6-8 people 1 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese
Wash and dry mushrooms. Slice off stems. Saute’ stems and caps until brown, browning the cap side of mushroom first. Cook spinach according to package and strain excess liquid from spinach. Line a shallow 10″ casserole dish (about 1 1/2″ deep) with the spinach. Season with salt, chopped onion and melted butter.
Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese. Arrange the sautéed mushrooms (caps and stems) over the spinach. Season with garlic salt. Cover with remaining cheese. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees, or until cheeses is melted and browned. Casserole may be prepared in advance.
What a great idea, who does not like food? Sharing recipes that we have come to treasure over the years. I am going to have to take some time to get mine in writing, most of them are all stored to memory and who measures anyway? LOL, I will make sure to get working on this so that I will be able to share with everyone. For now, I would like to redirect you to my post, Spending Sentimental Sundays With Family Recipes. Here I shared our families recipe for Milk Pie. Don’t be like me and judge it before you try it, it is delicious!
