Ingredients

  • 2 boxes frozen chopped spinach
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 slices white bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick)
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • tsps Worcestershire sauce ~ or as my grandmother and mom say, Lea & Perrins
  • ¼ tsp garlic salt

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan

Instructions

  • In medium sauce pan, cook frozen spinach in ¼ cup water, lid on, and stir frequently to break up as it cooks, 10 - 15 minutes.  Do NOT drain water. 
  • Add the bread pieces, butter, celery salt, Worcestershire and garlic salt, stir to combine and butter melts, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Meanwhile, make the topping.  In small bowl, combine melted 2 tablespoons butter, bread crumbs and Parmesan with a fork until crumbly.
