Creamy Baked Spinach w/ Tomatoes
16 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and water squeezed out
3 oz room temp cream cheese
3 Tbsp cream (or 1/2&1/2 or milk...)
3 cloves roasted garlic, mashed
~1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 med tomato, sliced into 1/4-1/3 inch slices (pulp gently squeezed out if it is really wet)
1/3 C bread crumb mixture*
oil or melted butter
Combine cheese, cream, salt, pepper, and garlic. Mix in spinach.
Spread into a lightly greased 9 inch pie plate (or other cooking vessel). Arrange tomato slices over the top. Sprinkle breadcrumbs over the top. Drizzle a little bit of oil or melted butter over breadcrumbs so they get golden brown.
Bake at 375 deg F for 12-15 min. Broil on HI until breadcrumbs are golden.
*Breadcrumb mixture: 1/2 seasoned breadcrumbs (I used a roasted garlic variety) and 1/2 grated parmesan (the kind from the can). I made a huge batch of this stuff a year ago. I keep it in my freezer to use for all sorts of stuff and it is still delicious!
