Outstanding! While I made a number of changes to suit my taste, I know this would still be a 5-star recipe as written. I added a few garlic cloves to the potatoes as they were boiling. I wilted fresh spinach and used that rather than frozen. I added some cooked, crumbled bacon, used green onion and omitted the dill weed. At this point this dish was SO delicious and SO beautiful that I thought the shredded cheese would only ruin its elegance. The cheese, I still think, would have reduced the look of these potatoes to that of an ordinary casserole. This was the perfect accompaniment to the "Herb Crusted Chuck Roast" and green beans.

Sorry for such a bad review because I really hoped this worked out. Very bland. Sorry

I made this for Thanksgiving this year and everybody loved it. I had a bag of fresh spinach so I sauteed it with some garlic and onions in a small amount of olive oil. I also mixed the cheddar cheese into the potato mixture instead of on top and it made for a better presentation of the dish. I felt it was a tad on the dry side so next time I make it I'll try red potatoes since they make the creamiest mashed potatoes, or I'll add a small amount of milk to the recipe. Update: I originally did this review back in 2008 and have made this many times. Two things that are really good that I wanted to share that I have since tried with this recipe is the addition of crumbled bacon bits and green onions instead. And on another occasion I have topped with Frenches onions pieces and that was a hit. Just FYI.

FREAKIN' AWESOME! I used spinach dip just because it was handy instead of the spinach and sour cream seperately. I added a little bit of garlic as well. Definitely worth making again!

This is a very unique recipe and a crowd pleaser. The only thing I added was topping this casserole dish with French's French Fried Onions during the last 5 mins of cooking time. My family loves it!!

What a comforting dish. I made a small portion of this since it was just my husband and I. It was beyond outstanding. We finished the entire thing and my husband raved on and on about it. I added just a touch of garlic to the mix to suit our taste, but it would have been excellent without it. I think green onions would have also been excellent in this dish. I am already planning to make this one a staple on my holiday table. It is a dish I will be proud to serve. Thank you for this very delicious recipe!

My husband is getting anti spinach, after always being a spinach eater! I made these and he just loved them! The only change I made in the recipe is that I used instant mashed potato's (enough) for 8 servings, added some granulated garlic and onion powder to the mix. Then I sprayed 2 small quart casseroles with non stick spray and froze one casserole for later! Yum-O this is a great recipe for adults too!

This was an absolute hit! Amazing! I replaced the frozen spinach with fresh sauteed in garlic, and omitted the cheese- why make veggies fattening and casserole-like? But oh so good- thank you!! =)
