"Creamy spinach casserole has always been a favorite in my family, so it's a sure-fire hit for any gathering. The pimiento cheese flavors give it a uniquely Southern twist." --Perre Coleman Magness, author of Pimento Cheese: The Cookbook

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Drain spinach well, pressing between paper towels. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic, and sauté 1 minute; remove from heat.

Step 2

Stir cream cheese into onion mixture until melted and well blended. Stir in spinach, milk, and next 3 ingredients. Stir together egg, drained pimiento, and 1 1/2 cups cheese; stir egg mixture into spinach mixture. Spoon mixture into lightly greased (with cooking spray) ramekins or a 2-qt. baking dish; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Toss together panko, 2 Tbsp. melted butter, and remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese; sprinkle over spinach mixture.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until bubbly and golden.

I love this web site I have found so many recipes for many different Holidays throughout the year.

Great Thanksgiving side dish

I made this last year for Thanksgiving and it's been requested again. It's delish! Easy to put together and a crowd pleaser. I topped it with CheezIts because I had those on hand instead of panko, and I added a few dashes of Franks, otherwise followed the directions. Highly recommended.
