Ingredients

6 large
yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 c
milk
1/2 c
chicken broth
4 Tbsp
butter, softened
1 tsp
salt
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1
vidalia onion, thinly sliced
4 clove
garlic, finely chopped
1 pkg
(11 oz.) baby spinach
1-1/2 c
shredded cheddar cheese

Step-By-Step

1Place the potatoes in a large pot, cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer about 20 minutes, until tender. Drain and return to pot.
2Add the milk, broth, butter and 3/4 tsp. salt. Mash with a potato masher until fairly smooth.
3Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally until very tender, about 8 minutes. Add garlic and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt, stirring until fragrant, about 1 minute.
4Add the spinach in batches and cook until spinach is wilted and any liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes.
5Spread half the potato mixture into a sprayed 2-qt. baking dish. Top with half of the spinach mixture and half of the cheese. Top with the remaining potato mixture, the remaining spinach mixure and the remaining cheese.
6Bake, uncovered, in a preheated 400ยบ oven until the filling is heated through and the topping is browned and bubbly, about 25 minutes. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving.
