Ingredients

  • 36 oz frozen spinach, I used 3- 12 oz packs
  • 1 tub Kite Hill Almond Milk Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 cup Pork Panko, or crushed up pork rinds

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9x13 casserole dish.
  • Cook the spinach according to package directions. I just boiled mine for a few minutes, then drained it in a colander. Press down on the cooked spinach with paper towels to absorb any excess water. It's important to get ALL of the water out so you don't have a watery casserole!
  • Melt the ghee in a sauce pan over medium low heat. Add in the cream cheese and stir as it melts, until you have a creamy mixture and the cream cheese is completely mixed in. Add in the garlic powder and salt and stir.
  • Mix the cooked spinach with the cream cheese/ghee mixture in a bowl. Transfer it to the casserole dish. Top with the pork panko, then bake (uncovered) for 20 minutes. Enjoy!

Notes

You can use regular cream cheese in place of Kite Hill - however it will not be paleo anymore.
