Baked Spinach Casserole

We have been making this recipe for years and it’s one that my husband always requests for holiday meals. It’s easy and can be made ahead of time.

  • 2 boxes frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 6 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a strainer in the sink and add thawed spinach, pressing into the strainer with the back of a spoon to release all of the excess water.
In a skillet, melt 4 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until softened a little. Add the flour and stir until well blended. Add half the milk, stirring until blended. Add the rest of the milk and stir until a smooth sauce forms.
Add the pepper, celery salt, and Worcestershire sauce. Add the cheese and stir until it is completely melted. Add the spinach and combine. Pour into a small casserole dish or baking pan.
Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and add the bread crumbs. Sprinkle the spinach with the bread crumb/butter mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 for 40 minutes or until the cheese bubbles and the bread crumbs are a golden brown.

*This recipe can easily be doubled.
