This recipe was called Herbed  Spinach a la Jeanette in the Missouri 1821 - 1971 Sesquicentennial Edition Cookbook that I found at an estate sale. It was submitted by Mrs. Paul Dodds of West Plains, MO. I mentioned it to my husband and he immediately voiced his positive agreement. He said it sounded like a good dish. Then I told him I didn't know why it was called "herbed" because it didn't have any herbs in it. We both enjoyed a laugh but I told him I would still make it for him. (So I chose to leave the "herbed" off of the title. Forgive me Mrs. Dodds.)

Well, I made it and my husband couldn't tell me enough times how good it was. He asked me what was in it and then said, "I could even eat this for breakfast." "Okay, if you want to, Dear."

*After the ingredient Mrs. Dodds added (if it is spelled wrong it does not hurt the taste) Cute. It wasn't misspelled.


1       (10 ounce) package frozen, chopped spinach
1       cup cooked rice
1       cup shredded sharp cheese
2      slightly beaten eggs
2      tablespoons butter
1/3   cup milk
2      tablespoons onion, chopped
2      tablespoons Worcestershire sauce*

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish.

Cook and drain frozen, chopped spinach (according to directions on package). Make sure you drain the spinach well. I am not sure I drained mine enough.

Mix with rice, cheese, eggs, butter, milk, onion, and Worcestershire sauce.

Pour into prepared casserole dish and bake for about 20 minutes.

    1. Thanks Sumita. I didn't know about reducing the infertility problem. Thanks for sharing that information. I like fresh, uncooked spinach but my husband likes both.
