Servings: 10 Bake 425°F 10 mins Cook 7 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup (about 4 ounces) finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 6 boxes (10 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/4 cup seasoned croutons, crushed

Make It

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir in flour and cook until mixture bubbles, about 2 minutes. Whisk in milk; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring often, 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in half the cheese; set aside.

2. Lightly butter a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Thoroughly mix spinach with sauce and spoon into dish in an even layer. (Gratin can be made ahead to this point and refrigerated up to 2 days.)

3. Mix remaining 1/2 cup cheese and crushed croutons. Sprinkle evenly over spinach. Bake until cheese melts, about 10 minutes.
