I bought a bag of frozen spinach awhile back, to make creamed spinach with but now that I'm pregnant, it sounds like something that'd make me sick. So I need some ideas of what to do w/it.....thanks in advance!

you could make a Florentine Chicken Ring (I got it out of the pampered chef Stoneware cookbook)

1 can (10 oz) chunk white chicken, drained and flaked. (or I myself use 2 chicken breasts that I've cooked and flaked.)

1/2 cup red peppers, chopped

1 pkg (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained

1 cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese (you can really use whatever cheese you want.)

1/3 cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1/2 tsp salt

1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

2 pkgs (8 oz each) refrigerated crescent rolls.

(I've also used shredded carrots, green peppers, and onions at different times when making this)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix the ingredients together. Unroll crescent rolls and seperate each triangle. You can overlap them in a circle if you want to make the ring. I just wrap the filling indiviually and cook them as their own little thing. I put as much filling as I think I can wrap in each one, but you can also (especially if making the ring) spread it out evenly. If you make the ring you may find that when you fold the tip over and under that some of the filling still shows, that's fine. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Another thing you could do is make some kind of spinach dip or spinach poppers.

I just saw your post on the main list. I make spinach quiche with frozen spinach, red onion, and cheese. Just in case you don't have a quiche recipe:
1 cooked pie crust, sprinkle cheese on bottom, put in sauteed spinach and onion, cover in mixture of 3 eggs, 1 cup milk, salt/pepper, bake in oven for 40-45 minutes at 375.
It's one of my favourite uses for spinach!

This is uber-white trash, but I love spinach madeline. It's the only item in my recipe box that calls for velveeta, I swear. It also tastes lighter than it sounds. I'll stop apologizing now. This stuff is good.

20 oz. pkg. chopped spinach
4 oz. evaporated milk
4 tbsp. butter
1/2 onion, chopped
2 tbsp. flour
3/4 tsp. garlic salt
3/4 tsp. celery salt
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
3/4 c. milk
6 oz. Velveeta hot cheese
4 oz. spinach liquid
Lemon juice
Bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. pepper

Defrost spinach and save liquid. Squeeze dry. Make white sauce by melting butter and adding flour. When cooked, add onion. Cook until tender, not brown. Add evaporated milk and spinach liquid. Add spinach and the juice of one squeezed lemon. Add remaining ingredients. Fry bread crumbs in butter. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.

I thaw it and saute it in olive oil with garlic. Brown the garlic first, then throw in the thawed spinach. It's good as a side, or with pasta.

ETA I'm not in your DDC, I saw this in new posts, and wasn't paying close attention.
