Creamy Baked Spinach

Cream cheese turns ordinary spinach into a side dish that's pretty enough to serve company. "This casserole is a snap to stir up because it relies on convenient frozen chopped spinach," remarks Beverly Albrecht of Beatrice, Nebraska.

    This is sooo good!! We switch it up a bit and substitute 1 box of frozen chopped broccoli for one of the boxes of spinach. We also add a sprinkling of oregano for extra flavor. I usually skip the croutons to make this dish gluten-free for myself. It's just as good. Sometimes we just defrost the veggies in the oven as it cooks (on 325) with the butter and cream cheese and bake it until bubbly and golden on the edges.
