Delicious! It's a great side dish. I cooked three potatoes and added dehydrated scallions along with the spinach instead of onion. Topped with a light sprinkling of paprika for appealing color. Will definitely make these again.

This was super easy. My quick tune ups were:- Use a can of diced tomato with green chilies, drain the juice off.- When cutting the potatoes cut them across the middle, scoop out with ice cream scoop, and do the final bake in a muffin tray...way less mess that way and easier to work with.I also found you can freeze these and then microwave them for snacks for the kids...works like a champ!!
