What to make with Frozen Spinach

I have a Costco shepherds pie to bake for dinner tonight. My cupboards and freezer are pretty bare, but I am NOT going to the grocery store. So about the only vegetable in the house is frozen spinach. I normally use it in lasagna and other pasta dishes, but tonight I would like a side dish that uses frozen spinach and would be OK with the shepherd's pie. Anyone have any ideas?

LOL--you just sparked a memory. Apparently my mom's mother made creamed spinach that was...well, really bad. One day we were at a fairly nice restaurant and she saw it on the menu. She said, "Creamed spinach? Who in the world would order creamed spinach?" Never seen her with such a sour expression! :laugh:

Lightly cooked and dressed with fresh lemon Juice.

 

Please don't punish an innocent vegetable by creaming it.

 

 

 

Lol. I like things creamed:) But I averted this vegetable crisis by asking DH to make a "beer run" on the way home. Oh, and while he is there, to pick up some fresh broccoli, lol.

 

I was on the road yesterday and ate two fast food meals, so I just feel nasty today. I ate fresh blueberries for breakfast, but I need a really good vegetable for dinner.

It's past dinner time but I suggest spinach balls.

 

2pks frozen spinach

4 beaten eggs

2 cups herb stuffing

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

1 garlic clove, minced

1 chopped onion

3/4 cup melted butter

Salt& pepper

 

Cook spinach and drain. Mix all ingredients. Chill for 2 hours. Form into balls. It makes a big batch I freeze most of them and store in a freezer bag.

 

Bake 300 for 30 min.

Do you just serve these on the side of another dish? Like with roasted chicken or fish?

spinach casserole with ricotta (or cottage cheese), mozarella, a couple of eggs, some onion & garlic powder, salt & pepper. I defrost the spinach, squeeze out the moisture, then throw all the ingredients into the food processor, pour in a casserole & bake @ 350 for 40 min. Top with parmesan and paprika. Serve with cornbread if desired.

 

That sounds delish, will have to try.
