This recipe deserves all 5 stars for its simplicity and tastiness. When I make this, I mix all the ingredients in the crockpot (saving myself from cleaning an unnecessary dish), cover, and let it cook for hours. I agree with the other reviewers that said it did not need to cook for that long, so test it after a few hours. Also, this recipe calls for only 2 packages of spinach, which makes the dish too runny - it ends up more like a dip. I added an additional package of spinach, for a total of 3, and it turned out perfect. You can use any cheese you would like, as well. I used white cheddar and it was delicious. This recipe has been around for decades (my great aunt used to make this in the 70's), so it's definitely a keeper. Just tweek it to your likeness, and you'll have this staple creamed spinach recipe for years.


WOW!What an awesome recipe. I broke my crockpot while I was preparing this, but I decided to make it anyway. I baked it for one hour at 350, covered then for another ten mins or so, uncovered and it browned up nicely. It almost tastes like broccoli and cheese rice. If you serve it "piping" (very) hot you dont taste the wonderful flavors as well---just so that everyone knows how good this is, Thank you so much for the wonderful vegetable recipe!!!youre the best!--Lady M----


This was really good spinach. The only thing I did differently than the recipe said, was I just mixed everything together inside the crock pot instead of mixing it in a bowl and dumping it in. Saved me a dish! I also lined my slow cooker with one of those slow cooker bags, so I had no mess. This was delicious and simple. Next time I may tweak the spices just for fun, to see what happens. I used light cottage cheese and american cheese, and next time I may use egg whites just to keep this dish low fat and not cancel out the health benefits of spinach. I served this it a birthday dinner with lots of family. Most of the kids wouldnt' try it because it had spinach in it, but a couple did and they were surprised that they liked it.
