  • Yield: 8 servings

"My family insists that I serve this with a standing rib roast. One of our sons doesn't like tomatoes, so I make a tiny casserole for him using all of the other ingredients - except the tomatoes - and sprinkle grated cheese on top."


1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach
2large tomatoes, cut into 3/4-inch-thick slices
1/2cup dry Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1/2cup chopped green onions (white and green parts)
3 eggs, beaten
1/4cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1/4cup grated Parmesan
1/4teaspoon minced garlic
1/2teaspoon salt
1/4teaspoon dried thyme leaves
2 to 3 dashes hot pepper sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish.
  2. Cook spinach according to package directions. Drain well in a colander, pressing with paper towels to remove most of the liquid.
  3. Arrange tomato slices in a single layer in prepared pan. Combine bread crumbs, green onions, eggs, butter, Parmesan, garlic, salt, thyme and hot sauce in a medium bowl. Add spinach; mix well.
  4. Spoon equal amounts of the spinach mixture on top of each tomato slice. Bake, uncovered, 15 minutes.
