Holiday Spinach Casserole

This casserole is so cheesy and creamy. The casserole with all the ingredients sort of sets like a souffle. It's pretty easy to make, and I often make it for holidays.

I have only tried it with American cheese which isn't very gourmet - I suppose you could try another type of cheese - Muenster or Swiss. But a good brand of American isn't very pricey and, honestly, it is so delicious you probably won't bother trying a different type of cheese. Enjoy!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is one of those easy holiday casseroles that you can prepare ahead of time and just pop it in the oven when ready to eat. It is cheesy, creamy and oh so good. The spinach flavor really shines through. So yummy!

Ingredients

6 Tbsp
butter
8 oz
white American cheese
6
beaten eggs
6 Tbsp
flour
4 c
small curd cottage cheese
3
packages of frozen spinach

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350. Cut butter and cheese into 1/4 inch cubes. Set aside.
2
In medium bowl beat eggs lightly. Add flour, cottage cheese, butter, and American cheese. You can add a pinch of salt & pepper, but I normally don't. Defrost the frozen spinach, and do your best to remove and squeeze out most of the water. Add to mixture and mix well.
3
Place in a greased ovenproof dish (I use a large ovenproof round Pyrex bowl). Bake at 350 for 1 hr. Serve hot.
