A Lovely Simple Dinner Recipe

One of my aunts made this dinner when I was a child.

I loved it and could not have enough of it.

Decades later, I tried to replicate the recipe.

It turned out exactly as I remember it.

Make a bechamél sauce - melt 2 Tbs of butter and add 2 Tbs flour.

Add 2 cups of milk and whisk continuously on low heat until it thickens.

Turn the heat off and add chopped spinach - use lots for a mix that is more spinach than bechamél.

Using the most plain white bread you can find, cover the sliced with a thick layer of the spinach mixture.

Add a slice of ham on top and bake in a 450 oven until the bread is toasted and the ham is turning a bit crunchy and starting to burn at the sides.

Delicious. Enjoy.
