Please excuse me if I have already posted this subject; can't access my crazy desktop where that info is located. Regardless, many like to serve a spinach dish (we certainly do) during the holidays so that is the subject for this week.

No recipe, but one of my favorites is to saute' some mushrooms in butter, add to a big bowl of fresh spinach. Add a little of my favorite Italian salad dressing to the pan, toss in a couple tablespoons of Parmesan cheese, heat that all up and pour over the spinach and mushrooms and toss. Yum!

RE: Reccipes for Spinach - Week 3 October 2013

I got this recipe here back in the 90's from Sharon, I think. It makes a lot, but I have half a dozen friends that want jars when I make it.

Pa. Dutch Bacon Dressing

Homemade Sweet & Sour Bacon Dressing
Fry 1lb. bacon in heavy pot till crisp. Drain & break into tiny pieces-not crumbled! Pour out half the grease-leave rest in pot.
5 eggs (beaten with a spoon)
5 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup flour
5 tsps dry mustard
MIX WELL-use slotted spoon or whisk
2 1/2 cups CIDER vinegar
5 cups water-Mix till well blended.

* Heat on medium-stirring often, but not constantly, as this lowers the cooking temperature.
In about 15-20 minutes, mixture will begin to thicken. Make sure you scrape sides of pot & the bottom-often-don't let burn!
* Once it is as thick as a medium gravy-remove from heat, and add bacon and 2 TBS margarine or butter.

Excellent on Spinach Salads, Baked Potatoes, or just lettuce. Really good if you microwave a serving for 30 seconds or till just warm.

I have been unavailable to post recipes so will continue with the spinach recipes.

Here is one from Gardenweb's CindyMac; it is quite good.

When Kraft stopped making the roll of jalapeno cheese that was originally used in this dish cooks tried various substitutions. I tried it with cheddar cheese and jalapenos, and then with Monterey Jack and jalapenos. Neither worked as well as the Hot Mexican Velveeta. CindyMac@gardenweb
2 pkgs. frozen chopped spinach
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup half and half
1/2 cup vegetable liquor
4 ounces Velveeta Mexican Hot Cheese, cubed into small pieces
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
coarse salt to taste
Cook spinach according to package directions. Drain and reserve liquor.
Melt butter in heavy skillet over medium heat. Add onions and celery and cook until soft. Add garlic for 30 seconds then add flour, stirring until blended and smooth. Add liquid slowly, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. When thick, add cheese and seasonings. Stir until melted.
Combine with cooked spinach and place in a casserole dish. (I use a glass pie pan or a similar shallow dish.) Top with breadcrumbs; cover and refrigerate overnight.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until bubbling hot.

It's one of my favorite side dishes with most any meal. beverlyal@gardenweb
