Easy Spinach Casserole

Finally, a recipe that DOESN’T make my blood sugar go insane.

There ARE bread crumbs in this, but that’s easily eaten around. Or eliminated all together. Very few times am I able to find a cooked side dish for myself during dinner that I can eat as well as the other working beta cell members of the family.

And, for all intents and purposes, it’s pretty healthy. Yeah, it’s got cream of mushroom soup in it. But that’s really the only thing that’s “chemically” in it.

First, get yourself two packages of spinach, the 10 oz ones. Thaw them out, squeeze and drain them.

Now dump some cheese on it.

Now dump a can of cream of mushroom soup on it, condensed, egg, some mayo and chopped onion.

Mix the hell out of it and put it in a casserole dish.

Now take some bread crumbs and toss it with melted butter. Sprinkle that on top.

And now toss it in the oven.

It’s really, really good. It is to me any way. And pretty diabetic friendly. So tasty. So so so tasty. Great addition to a meal. It’s got a nice Thanksgiving side dish feel to it without the effort. And you can always pretend like you slaved and slaved. I mean, no one’s gonna know.
