I'm trying to use up what food we have in our home right now. Tonight we had homemade pizza, and I made this side for something green to go with it. It's very similar to broccoli casserole...but it has spinach, and since I hate the word "casserole" (I mean, does anyone really like that word?!?!), I'm calling this my broccoli-spinach bake. We really liked it, and my child couldn't get enough...which isn't bad for something consisting of broccoli and spinach.
I N G R E D I E N T S :
1 frozen package of broccoli
1 frozen package of chopped spinach
2 Tbsp. butter
5 or so slices cheddar cheese (about 5 ounces maybe?), divided into strips
D I R E C T I O N S :
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place frozen broccoli and spinach into a medium or large saucepan with butter and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and reduce to a low simmer. Cover, and let simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the broccoli is nice and tender. Add cheese and stir to combine. Cover and let cheese melt onto broccoli and spinach on low heat. Once melted, stir again. Place into a baking dish and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Bake for around 30 minutes.
