Now just wait a minute! Don't turn up your nose at this until you hear me out.
I hated most vegetables growing up, but oh how I loved this rich and creamy spinach.
My Nan would make this for special occasions, Christmas being one of them. I had actually lost the recipe for several years and my Mom found it last week. I took it to our covered dish dinner at work yesterday and they loved it too.
Here's what you'll need:
16oz cottage cheese
1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. sour cream
2 packages of frozen spinach, thawed and well drained. (I use 3)
4 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, divided into 2 cups each.
1 package of croutons.
Mix together the cottage cheese, eggs, flour and sour cream. Add in the spinach and 2 cups of cheese. I actually squeeze my spinach with a paper towel to make sure it's very dry.
Pour into a 13x9 greased pan.
Top remaining cheese then croutons.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
I usually save a little back from the second 2 cups of cheese to put on top of the croutons when the casserole is done, then pop it back in the over for about 5 minutes until it melts.
So very good.
