Spinach Madeline
Zesty Spinach Dip or Side Dish
2 pkgs. Frozen Chopped Spinach
4 Tbsp. Butter
2 Tbsp. Flour
2 Tbsp. Onion (chopped very fine)
1/2 Cup Evaporated Milk
1/2 Cup Spinach Liquid
1/2 tsp. Pepper
3/4 tsp. Garlic Salt
3/4 tsp. Celery Salt
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
8 oz. Pepper Jack Cheese(shredded works best)
Club Crackers (if desired)


Cook spinach according to package; Drain well and reserve 1/2 cup of the liquid.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter and onions; cook until clear and tender. Add flour; do NOT brown. Add milk, stirring constantly. Add spinach liquid; cook until smooth and thick. Add all seasonings and cheese; stirring until melted. Remove from heat and add spinach. Mix well. Pour into a casserole dish and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, or until mixture is all bubbling.

Serve with club crackers, bread pieces or as a side dish!

It's best if you refrigerate overnight and re-heat to allow all the flavors to blend together, but you can serve it right out of the oven and it still tastes great!
