Cheesy Spinach Casserole
1 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cubed process cheese (Velveeta)
1 tablespoon chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt – reduced to 1/4 tsp
1 cup soft bread crumbs - 1/2 Panko crumbs, 1/2 Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan/Romano cheese - my addition to the original recipe
4 1/2 teaspoons butter or margarine, melted
In a large bowl, combine the spinach, eggs, milk, cheese cubes, onion, and salt. Pour into a greased 1-qt. baking dish. Combine bread crumbs, grated cheese, and butter; sprinkle over the top. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degrees preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

The hubby and Red really enjoyed this. Some things to note, I patted the spinach with paper towels to dry it as much as possible and beat the eggs and milk together before combining with the spinach. I believe this combination solved the slimy texture problem. Using a combination of bread crumbs combined with the strong flavor of the grated cheese contrasted the spinach mixture nicely.
Very nice side dish and another cooked spinach hit!I'm so pleased with this spinach recipe I submitted to May's Side Dish Showdown!
