Spinach Bake

Casseroles are an easy way to make veggies for large dinner parties.  You can put them together ahead of time, then just stick them in the oven.  The problem is, many are full of high sodium condensed soups as well as fat.  They actually have little veg. in them.  I wanted to give you a veggie filled, low fat, low sodium option.  It is just as easy to put together.  You can make it ahead of time.  But, it is packed with nutritious dark leafy greens.  Try it out and it just might become a new tradition at your dinner parties.  Be sure to pin it for use in the weeks to come!

Spinach Bake

1/4 cup coconut oil (you can use butter if you prefer)
1 large onion, diced
30 ounces spinach, cleaned and torn (you can use frozen, thawed and drained)
1 cup bread crumbs. divided use (I make my own with gluten free bread)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup fat free half & half (use plant based milk in you prefer)
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Melt coconut oil in a deep, large pan.  Add the onion and saute until tender.  Add the spinach and stir to wilt.  When spinach is wilted, remove from heat and add 2/3 cup bread crumbs, pecans, half & half, nutmeg, salt and pepper.  Stir to make sure everything is thoroughly combined.  Place in a greased casserole dish or a baking pan.  Sprinkle the top with the remaining bread crumbs.  At this point you can store it until the day of the dinner party.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes if baking immediately.   If you are taking from the refrigerator to the oven, bake 60 minutes or until the center is hot and bubbly.

This can easily be made into a brunch recipe.  Toast English muffins.  Place half of an English muffin on a plate, top with a spoonful of the spinach bake.  Add a poached egg on top.  Drizzle with a little browned butter.

Enjoy your week and have fun in the kitchen!
