Creamy Spinach Casserole

Creamy Spinach Casserole

Serves 2.

This was absolutely delicious! Fairly quick and easy to prepare for a weeknight, but would also hold its own as a side dish on the holiday table.

2 c. spinach (not packed)
1/2 small onion, chopped
1/2 t. minced garlic
1 t. olive oil
1 c. cubed day-old bread
1 egg white
1/4 c. heavy cream
Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a skillet over medium heat, saute onion and garlic in olive oil for 2-3 minutes. Add spinach and allow the heat to reduce it in size.

Meanwhile, in a small baking dish (about the size of a loaf pan) that has been coated with nonstick spray, evenly spread cubed bread. Add spinach mixture evenly over bread.

In a small bowl, whisk egg white and heavy cream together. Pour over bread and spinach mixture.

Bake 18-20 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.

A Note From The Little Lady: I used a mini whole wheat bagel for the day-old bread in this recipe and it worked fabulously.
