Baked Spinach Gratin
Creamy with a crispy topping, this is a side dish for Sunday suppers and holidays alike.
2 cans (15 oz. each) Popeye® Cut Spinach
2 Tbsp. butter
1 cup chopped onion
6 oz. cream cheese, cut into cubes, softened to room temperature
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup crushed buttery crackers, such as Ritz
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese, optional
- Heat oven to 375°F. Drain spinach in a colander. Rinse and drain well (press with a wooden spoon to extract most of liquid). Set aside.
- Melt butter in a 10-inch oven-proof skillet (wrap handle with foil) over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook 4 minutes or until softened; add cream cheese. Cook 2 minutes or until melted. Remove from heat and stir in spinach, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Top with crushed crackers and Parmesan cheese, if desired.
- Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until bubbly and topping is golden brown.
