7 Recipes With Frozen Spinach
Make Popeye proud with one of our favorite frozen spinach recipes. Whether you're looking for a family-friendly dinner (may we recommend this Greek Salad Lasagna or these Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Stuffed Potatoes?) or an easy appetizer (you'll love this Warm Spinach-Sweet Onion Dip with Country Ham), put that package of frozen spinach to good use.
Greek Salad Lasagna
Greek salad and lasagna work well as individual entities, and together they meld together in a family friendly, big ol’ plate of food. Sharp flavors from olives, feta, red pepper and red wine vinegar liven up an otherwise classic dish. If you use brine jarred olives, you may want to reduce the amount so it doesn’t overpower the rest of the dish.

Stuffed Beef Tenderloin with Burgundy-Mushroom Sauce
Everyone will admire these tender spirals of beef filled with creamy spinach and leeks and topped off with a rich mushroom sauce. Rolling and stuffing the meat is easier than it looks.
Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Stuffed Potatoes
Decadent, cheesy, and loaded with bacon—what more could you ask of a potato? These stuffed potatoes deliver a rich balance of texture and flavor with crisp scallions and crunchy bacon complimenting fluffy spinach mashed potatoes, cheddar cheese, and sour cream.
We use the tart-shell method for a fuss-free version of the classic Greek spinach-and-cheese pastry. A little pimiento, brightened with vinegar, adds pop; you could also sub chopped olives. Let the spinach drain while the crust bakes. Build and finish baking the tart shortly before guests arrive.
Caramelized Onion-and-Spinach Dip
Spinach and artichoke dip who? Fact: This incredibly easy Caramelized Onion-and-Spinach Dip is pretty much the perfect appetizer.
Thomas McNaughton, the chef and co-owner of Flour + Water and several other restaurants in San Francisco, named this hearty, well-structured lasagna for his daughter, Lucie. "Make this lasagna the way you like it and to fit the seasons," he says. "If you like aged Gouda, use that instead of parmesan. Or use thyme in the winter instead of basil."
