Cream cheese turns ordinary spinach into a side dish that's pretty enough to serve company. "This casserole is a snap to stir up because it relies on convenient frozen chopped spinach," remarks Beverly Albrecht of Beatrice, Nebraska.


  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs


  1. Cook spinach according to package directions; drain well. Stir in cream cheese, 2 tablespoons butter and salt.
  2. Transfer to a greased 1-qt. baking dish. Melt remaining butter; toss with bread crumbs. Sprinkle over spinach mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
