pkg of frozen chopped spinach
1/2 and 1/2 or whole milk
shredded cheddar cheese
2Place frozen spinach in a 7 or 8 cup microwave/oven safe dish. Microwave for 6 minutes stirring 1/2 way through.
3Drain excess liquid from spinach but don't squeeze it
4Saute onions in the butter until tender
5Add flour to the pan and cook for a few minutes
6Add the 1/2 and 1/2 and stir until smooth. Cook until thickened. It should be fairly stiff, there is some moisture in the spinach that will thin it a little.
7Add salt and pepper and 1 1/2 cups of the cheese. Stir until melted.
8Add spinach and rice and mix well. Heat through.
9Pour into the oven safe dish you microwaved the spinach in.
10Top with remaining cheese.
11Bake for 30 minutes. Cheese should be melted and slightly browned and the casserole should be bubbly.
