Creamed Spinach Casserole

THIS RECIPE comes from an old cookbook I received as a wedding gift in 1945. As they grew up, my children loved all vegetables, but they often requested spinach served this way. Through the years, it has remained a family favorite. —Jane Everett Pinehurst, North Carolina

    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."
