I had only 1/2 bag of spinach, but I decided to try this anyway. I just halved all the rest of the ingredients. I did not add the crumb mixture. This was very good! I will make it again.

this is not "creamed"....i made it in a 1 qt. dish... i would try it again, but with changes: needs more salt, needs less butter, perhaps some finely diced onion...maybe seasoned italian bread crumbs or parmesan cheese for topping, instead of buttery bread crumbs.

Simply isn't creamy enough - too solid a base and the bread crumb topping only makes is less creamy. A nice recipe, but definitely not "creamed spinach."
