Spinach Mashed Potatoes

Standard

mashedI have always thought of mashed potatoes as being kind of blah — until now. Mashed tvpotatoes with butter, sour cream, spinach, a little onion and . . . cheese! This recipe is something like a twice baked potato casserole. All of the ingredients are combined and then transferred into a casserole dish. After you top it off with some shredded cheddar it is popped into the oven to bake for about 20-25 minutes. This recipe is really an upgrade from the standard fare. Try serving this dish at your next get-together — it is sure to please. Shown here with Eye of Round Roast Beef.

Note: We also found that this is a terrific as a leftover. Reheats well, maintains its texture, and the flavor is out of this world.


SPINACH MASHED POTATOES (Serves 6-8)

Ingredients

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach
  • 6 potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium casserole dish.
  2. Cook spinach according to package directions. Place potatoes in a pot with enough water to cover, and bring to a boil. Cook 15 minutes, or until tender but firm. Drain, cool slightly, and mash.
  3. In a bowl, mix the spinach, mashed potatoes, butter, sour cream, onion, salt, and dill. Transfer to the prepared casserole dish. Top with Cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until bubbly and lightly brown.
