I am in search of a recipe that is lost. I've only made it once. Long story short, when I moved to Alaska, while waiting for our furniture, we rented a small furnished house that came with a cookbook. We lived there during Christmas of '95. In it, was a recipe for a spinach mushroom bake that was amazing! I meant to copy down the recipe, but never did. The next year, I asked the owner if I could borrow the book, but alas, she had ditched it. She didn't remember the name either!
For years I've searched for the recipe, but haven't found it. From what I can remember, it involved pressing spinach into the bottom of a baking dish. I remember adding some sort of milk (not cream, that I recall) on top and then placing the mushrooms in the milk. I remember the mushrooms bobbing around in the dish and thinking this was going to be a disaster.
It came out thick and glorious! It was absolutely delicious! I don't remember adding a thickener, but I certainly must have. It also looked very Christmas like because I used an oval dish and it was surrounded by the thick layer of spinach and it kind of had a wreath look when complete, save the yummy mushrooms in the middle.
The closest I have found is this: http://www.food.com/recipe/spinach-an... but they sauteed the mushrooms, which I didn't do. I remember they were still raw, or so it seemed.
I hesitate in calling it a casserole since it didn't have a topping really. It just cooked down into a thick, non-soupy, delicious side.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
ETA: There were no eggs in it.
