I cut this recipe in half and 1 box of spinach was plenty. The family loved it, was easy and delicious. Could not find brick cheese so used sharp white chedder instead.
Delicious and easy. Everyone in my family loved this one.
I also put in diced chicken breast and shrimp to this, just to give it a little more variety. Whenever I make this I have no left overs, no matter what I make it for! Even my kids love it (and one of them doesn't eat spinach!) Great recipe!
what is brick cheese?
Brick cheese is a specific type of cheese - it should be labeled "brick". If you can't find it you can substitute Cheddar, Tilsit or Havarti.
