This is a classic at our house...a recipe I grew up eating and one that my mother made at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's a delicious way to eat spinach and best of all, it's super easy to make. Above are the ingredients that you will need.
4 boxes frozen chopped spinach
2 small cans cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup mayonaise
2 (or more) cups cheddar cheese
First, you'll cook the spinach in about 2 cups of water...
Until all the frozen lumps are out. Be careful not to burn the spinach.
Then drain the spinach, pressing out the extra water.
While the spinach is cooking, you can mix together the mushroom soup, mayo, and eggs.
This is a good place to stop and kiss a squishy kid who's watching you cook.
Then add the spinach to the soup mixture.
And then add the cheese! The more the merrier.
To bake, I place the spinach in two pans (the less thick, the faster it cooks). I place the pans filled with spinach in a baking pan with water in the bottom (helps the bottom of the souffle not to overcook).
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, or until a knife comes out mostly clean. The middle shouldn't look "soupy" anymore.
And that's it! Enjoy.
