2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
3 large cloves garlic, minced
3 10-oz. packages chopped frozen spinach, thawed, squeezed dry
1 cup sour cream

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9-inch square baking dish. In a medium skillet, warm oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté until tender, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and continue to cook, stirring, until soft and fragrant, about 2 minutes longer.

3. In a small bowl, combine panko and Parmesan. Add butter and mix well. Scatter panko mixture over spinach. Bake, uncovered, until light golden brown and set, about 40 minutes.
