1 tablespoon flour

Salt and pepper to taste


Cook frozen spinach in a small amount of chicken or vegetable stock with onion until thawed. Turn into a greased casserole. Beat eggs in a small bowl turn into casserole with spinach and add rest of ingredients. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes.

Thanks for being faithful visitors!

Have a glorious weekend!
P.S. I am so aggravated with blogger - why does line spacing go so haywire and unfixable?

Made a spinach dish last week and Harry loved it. He didn't know he liked spinach. I think he would love this recipe. So glad my mama made me eat my spinach as a child. I guess that is where I learned to love it.

Thank you for the award you are the best bloggin buddy, so I guess you are my B.B.B. :)

(yeah, I was fighting with blogger yesterday, it's nuts sometimes)
