Spinach loaf

This fabulous concoction can be a main dish for a meatless meal (just add some toast), or it can be a side dish for a time when you want something pretty to serve. It takes 35 to 40 minutes to cook, not counting prep time, so plan to have it when you've got enough time for a 60 minute meal. It's worth it!

Spinach Loaf

Enough fresh spinach to fill a 2 quart pot or 2 c frozen chopped spinach

2 T butter
3 T flour
1 c milk

2 eggs
1 c cheddar cheese, grated

Lightly steam the spinach or microwave it if it's fresh, just long enough to wilt. Make a white sauce with the butter, flour, and milk. Let cool slightly and beat in 2 eggs and some salt. Place the spinach in an uncovered greased casserole dish and sprinkle on the grated cheese. Pour the white sauce overtop. Bake 35 to 40 minutes at 375 until knife comes out clean.
