Spinach Cheese Bake

EVEN THOSE who aren't fond of spinach will find this dish very tasty, because the spinach flavor is mellowed by the cheese and eggs. Those who enjoy spinach (like me) love this dish. I discovered this delicious recipe at a church luncheon, and it has become one of my family's favorite. -Elaine Hoehn, Merriam, Kansas

    I must have missed something on this recipe. Everyone seems to love it, but, we thought it rather bland. I did use fresh spinach, thinking it would have a better taste.

    I used fresh spinach rather than the frozen. It was very tasty and a great way to get people who are not fans of spinach to eat some.

    One of our family favorites. Have made it for years and extended family of all ages loves it. Glad to have it in my collection.

    I have also made this for many years, we all love it, the only change I make is to use 2 frozen packages of spinach instead of 1, and the rest the same. I also put it in a greased baking dish. I plan on making it for xmas, and will make 1 1/2 times the recipe, because it goes so fast. thanks Elaine for the great recipe.I've been making my 1 1/2 times version of this great recipe for many years, and have added 3/4 c. Of crumbled feta cheese which gives it a great boost. We love it and nothing gets left! Try it you won't be disappointed.

    I have cooked this recipe many times. My family loves it. Leftovers are good warmed over and served for breakfast. (If you have any left over!) The writing of this recipe left out an important step. After blending the flour in, gradually stir in milk; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; then stir in cheese until melted. From that point the recipe is correct.
