My 93-year-old Grandma Wenner (still alive and kickin’) always used to make her spinach casserole for family dinners, and we kids marveled at how it actually made us like spinach.
Now that I’m a grownup (and expected to bring a dish to family dinners), Grandma suggested I make her “Popeye’s Special.” It’s super easy, quick, and still makes spinach taste delish!
Grandma’s Spinach Casserole
- Three 10-ounce packages of frozen chopped spinach (or feel free to chop up some fresh spinach—just takes a little more time)
- One package of dry onion soup mix
- One cup of sour cream (or more, if you like)
- One can of bread crumbs
- Cook and drain the spinach as directed on the package.
- Mix spinach with the soup mix and sour cream.
- Spread it in a glass/Corningware dish (9×12 or so).
- Cover with a generous layer of bread crumbs.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
- Serve hot (or reheat when you get to Mom’s house).
