My friend Dottie gave me this great recipe! I was looking for a way to eat cooked spinach, which I hate.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Squeeze the water out of 2 small packages of thawed frozen spinach, or one 1 lb. package.
Soften 1 package of cream cheese and 1 stick butter in a pan or in the microwave. Add spinach. You can also add some minced onion or garlic, salt, and pepper to taste.
Pour into baking dish and bake for about 30-45 minutes until lightly browned on top (the browned bits are great!)
I haven't tried it with fresh spinach, but I'll bet it would work.
This is very creamy and rich. If you combined the ingredients in the food processor before baking, I think it would make a good hot dip. This is so lucious and rich, even my dog loves it (and he does not usually eat spinach, either)
