Beef Spinach Hot Dish Recipe

My family, which includes my parents and six brothers and sisters, all love this recipe. Sometimes I use ground turkey in place of the ground beef.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain. Stir in the mushrooms, salt, oregano and pepper. Add the spinach, soup and sour cream. Stir in half of the cheese.
  • 2. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese; bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"dinner fail. :( With all the great reviews and positive feedback, I thought this would be a surefire hit. None of my family members enjoyed this dish and we ended up throwing it away. i followed directions exactly. Overpowering spinach (and we very much enjoy spinach.) Did not find that flavors matched. Disappointed we spent at least $15 to make this casserole and ended up in the garbage."

"I have made this many times. My husband loves it. I've used turkey at times along with a small can of chopped chiles. I use whatever cheese I have at the time. You really can't mess this recipe up. Delicious!"
