Spinach Souffle Dip

My mother received a copy of this recipe from a 90-year-old friend who got the recipe from a sharecropper who worked in the kitchen at harvesttime. This dip has been part of my Christmas for about 30 years, and I always keep the recipe handy—everyone asks for it! —Nancy Needy, Spartanburg, South Carolina

    Used leaf spinach as I did not have chopped spinach! Used 2 cups of bread cubes and 2 Tbsp. butter, dash each salt/garlic powder to equal dash garlic salt.

    I made this for a Dine Around this weekend. It just didn't have any flavor at all. It received no comments and I brought most of it home. I think maybe it just had too much spinach in it in relation to the rest of the ingredients.
