This recipe is delicious! I challenge anyone who thinks they do not like spinach to give this recipe a try. It definitely will not be winning any accolades for being a healthy dish, but as I stated before it is amazingly good. Holidays are not holidays in my household without spinach gratin. The few times I have not made this dish on Thanksgiving, Christmas & Easter I have been met with sad eyes by my husband. So now it has become a staple on our holiday table. I seriously do not like to disappoint…especially on holidays. I hope you try this recipe, and it becomes a welcome addition to your holiday table as well.
