Simple Fresh Spinach Gratin

Total time: 45 minutes
     Fresh spinach cooks quickly, with a bit of stock to keep it moist.  It's topped with a seasoned mix of bread crumbs and shredded cheese for a quick, healthy side dish.

Simple Fresh Spinach Gratin Ingredients:


Note:  I could barely get all the spinach in my dish; I had to press it down. Heating the stock helped wilt it so that it wasn't higher than the sides of the baking dish.  As it bakes, it collapses, and the gratin topping comes together.
