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
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • ½ cup coarse, fresh bread crumbs ~ I made mine with white bread in the food processor
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400º
  • 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.
  • Lightly butter small round casserole.  Place spinach mixture in casserole and smooth top.  Sprinkle top of spinach evenly with bread crumb/Parmesan topping mixture.  Bake in center of oven for 15 minutes, until browned and bubbly. 

Notes

Serves 4 to 6 as a side dish
Spinach Rockefeller is a great side with beef, lamb or ham.  I’ve served it at dinner parties and people love it ~ something a bit different than creamed spinach.
