Maybe I'm on a spinach kick or maybe I'm just trying to grow big and strong, but either way I simply don't understand the fuss with spinach. It is delicious and good for you. So if you're not sold on spinach, you should be.
I made this dish at New Years and it was awesome! If you're looking for a easy side dish to whip up for the Super Bowl this Sunday, I'd highly recommend it. And this is a HUGE side dish! This recipe can feed a ton of people!
Here is the original pin, via Martha Stewart Recipes.
2 teaspoons olive oil, plus more for baking dish
1 medium inion, diced
2 garlic gloves, minced
2 pounds spinach (I used frozen, but gave it ample time to thaw before cooking)
1/2 cup milk
6 oz cream cheese
3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
3 dashes hot sauce (I used tobacco)
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella
salt and pepper
Baguette slices for serving (crackers would work too!)
Preheat over to 425 degrees. In a large pot, heat oil over medium. Add onion and garlic; cook until lightly browned. Add spinach in two additions. Let the first batch wilt before adding the second. Cook until completely wilted, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a colander and drain, pressing to release all excess liquid.
In the same pot, warm milk over high heat. Whisk in cream cheese until melted, about 3 minutes. Add spinach, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and 1/4 cup of cheese; stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into a lightly oiled 1 1/2 quart shallow baking dish; sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Back until bubbly and golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.
