This is one of the best spinach dishes I've tasted. A great choice for a holiday side dish.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag (16 oz) frozen chopped spinach
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup flour (all-purpose)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoon very finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg, fresh is best
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Preparation:

Thaw spinach in a colander; squeeze well to get as much moisture as possible out.

Preheat oven to 350°. Butter a 1-quart souffle or casserole dish.

Heat butter in a saucepan over medium low heat. When butter has melted, add flour; stir until smooth and bubbling. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly. When mixture is thick and boiling, remove from heat. Stir in the finely chopped onion, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and the nutmeg.

In a metal or glass mixing bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks have formed. In a separate bowl, beat yolks until frothy and lemon colored.

Stir egg yolks into the sauce mixture; stir in the spinach.

Stir about 1/4 of the beaten egg whites into the spinach mixture, then gently fold in the remaining egg white mixture.

Pour into the prepared souffle dish; set dish in a large pan then add water to a depth of about 1 inch.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes. The top will be lightly browned. Serve immediately.

Excellent!!! Will definitely make this again!!!, Member effie1123

My husband loves spinach. I knew I had a bag of frozen spinach in the refrigerator. I wanted to do something different, other than just thaw it out and eat it. Since this recipe uses kitchen staples, it was easy to put together. My husband was floored! His exact words were ""that spinach thing is unbelievable"". Thanks so much for this recipe.
