No Better Than Veggies and Cheese
This family pleasing recipe will be great to serve the family and helps use up some of the excess produce in the garden as well.
4 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
5 cups spinach, chopped into big pieces
1 large yellow onion, shredded then sliced into smaller pieces
4 tablespoons butter (divided in half)
1 tablespoon milk
5 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
salt and pepper to taste
Boil potato pieces in a pot of water. Cook for about 15 minutes or until they are fork done.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease an oval baking dish..
Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet and cook until it melts.
Add chopped onions. Cook onions for 5 minutes over medium heat.
Add the chopped spinach and mix together with the onions. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook for only a few minutes until the spinach wilts.
Mash the potatoes with a ricer or masher.
In a large bowl, combine spinach, onion and mashed potatoes.
Add 2 tablespoons of butter and the milk and mix together.
Place the mixture in the greased oval pan.
Place slices of tomato over the mixture. Spread them out.
Top with shredded cheddar cheese.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted and slightly browned.
Let stand for 5 - 10 minutes to cool down. I think, it is the tomatoes that maintains the heat.
Eat and enjoy.
