Ham and Spinach Bake

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (6 Reviews)


A homemade sauce helps to pull this tasty ham and spinach casserole together, and the Swiss cheese provides nice flavor.


  • 10 ounces frozen chopped spinach
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pimiento
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes or 1 tablespoon fresh minced parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups diced cooked ham
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese or use Monterey Jack or Cheddar
  • French-fried onions or buttered bread crumbs for topping


Cook spinach; drain well. Stir in butter until melted. In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, milk, onion, pimento, mustard, basil, parsley, and salt. Stir in ham, cheese and spinach. Pour mixture into a buttered 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes or until knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle top with French-fried onions or buttered bread crumbs.
Serves 4.

I found this recipe via Google, wanting to use up Christmas ham and a bunch of silver beet that a neighbour had kindly given us. Wow what a lovely dish. I don't know what casserole means in the US but this is certainly not a casserole dish in Australia. I would say it is more a frittata. I substituted the pimiento with capsicum (peppers in US) and crumbed a stale bread roll for the topping then used up the remainder of grated parmesan cheese. Anyway, a great dish and certainly a have again. Did not serve with salad but would be great as well with it.
