Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus 2 teaspoons
  • 3/4 cup chopped yellow onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 pound button mushrooms, wiped clean and sliced
  • 2 (10-ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
  • 1 (15-ounce) container ricotta
  • 1 cup grated monterey jack
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup dried bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9 by 13-inch glass baking dish with 2 teaspoons of the butter and set aside.

In a large skillet, melt the remaining butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, and cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms and cook until they give up their liquid, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

In a large bowl, combine the spinach, artichoke hearts, mushroom mixture, ricotta, jack, and feta, and toss to combine.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, nutmeg, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add to the spinach mixture. Add the bread crumbs and mix well. Transfer to the prepared dish and top with a layer of Parmesan. Bake until the casserole is firm and the top is golden, about 45 to 50 minutes.

Remove from the oven and serve.

Don't cheap out on the feta. The bam in this recipe comes from the feta. It's gotta be salty and powerful feta. This is critical. When we made this recipe, my impression was "Where's the Bam?" Emeril has never let me down but this tasted pretty boring -- not bad or unpleasant but not exciting at all. I understood that ya don't want to overwhelm the delicate artichoke taste and feta is a lovely choice but it was boring -- a lot of decadent cheesy goodness that could be put to better us, we thought; a canvas that we'll paint some flavors on next time. But wait! I was wrong! I trust Emeril recipes and wanted to figure it out. The culprit was the FETA! I lazied-out on the feta. We bought boring supermarket feta. That's why the dish needed salt. Proper feta would have had much more flavor and more salt. Make sure you have good tasty feta!!! The 'bam' in this dish comes from the feta. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really love the flavor of this casserole, but the dish is not very pretty. I'd give it a 4.5 for that reason. I made this without the onions but otherwise followed the instructions. I think I'll put more cheese on top to get a cheesy looking finished product (I think individual gratin dishes would be good. I also think that this would make fabulous filling for a vegetarian version of stuffed shells/manicotti etc. and I'll definitely use it for that in the future. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great addition to party buffet, and easy to put together. I turned the broiler on low for a few seconds after baking to get the top to brown a bit more. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Recipes is easy to follow and put together. Used fresh spinach (steamed and well drained), canned artichokes and mushrooms. The aroma was fantastic when served. The guests couldnt wait to dive in. Moist and flavorful. It serves like lasgna, holding its shape as cut. We served the casserole along side grilled salmon. The dish can be made as main course served with side salad or compliment any entree. The casserole travels well to parties and can be served warm or room temp. Everyone had seconds! - Cheers. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed recipe to the T and it was fantastic. This dish came out as a casserole and not like a dip. I can only think that some had to do with draining spinich completely of water. My brother who I was skeptical of ate 4 servings of this and raved on how this tasted. This will be a dish that will be done several times in the future. Thank you for the recipe Emeril top notch... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love to cook...I love Emeril...I love spinach, artichokes, and mushrooms...I hate this casserole. I made two batches of this to serve at a Thanksgiving buffet for 60 people and it did not go over well. I assumed my family was more into fried chicken than spinach casserole, until I tried it. The ricotta cheese made the "casserole" too grainy, the texture was off, it was bland, and it is not a casserole. I had to throw away one "casserole" that I baked because it was not good. This recipe is not awful, it is just not the kind of item you look forward to eating or want to make again. Luckily, I did not bake the second "casserole" and instead turned it into spinach dip. I added sourcream to the already made and refrigerated "casserole", a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, topped it with parmesiano reggiano cheese, served it with toasted pita points, and voila....spinach artichoke mushroom dip! Do not make this to serve as a casserole, it is simply not good. However, it can be turned into a good spinach dip! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We thought this dish was delicious, modified slightly by using fresh garlic, spinch and frozen artichokes to improve the quality. It is rich, next time we will serve with lighter sides. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I brought this to a Thanksgiving family potluck and I didn't tell anyone what was in it. They asked for seconds and it was one of the first dishes gone. Then my niece came to me and asked what was in it and was shocked, she swore she hated artichokes but loved them in my casserole. It was a hit and was easy to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
*This was a good recipe, but I didn't follow it exactly. I always read a lot of versions of the similar recipes then mix, and match to my taste. I suggest that to anyone looking to try something new. We can't all be Emerils. Like most chefs be probably left out his "secret" to making this dish great. Even if he didn't, we amateurs couldn't duplicate it if we wanted to. Anyway, for whatever reason I can't bring myself to make anything I know has an obscene amount of fat in it. I would eat the chef's, but my hands can't bring themselves to grabbing the items in store. So I sub the really fattening ingredients for something a little lighter, and it always tastes good. Instead of the 6 eggs, and all of the cheeses I found a lower-fat cream sauce recipe that was to my liking, but followed the rest of the steps. It was delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was so large that I used half on Christmas eve at one party and the rest on Christmas Night! The guests liked it a lot and came back for more. Great for all year around and very healthy it seems other than all of the cheese :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I listened to those who complained of blandness and made the following alterations: I added extra garlic, zest and juice of one lemon and a half tsp of mustard powder. Fantastic! If you've ever secretly wished you could just eat spinach artichoke dip with a spoon for dinner, this is your casserole! Just make sure you REALLY wring all the water from the spinach. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been making this dish for over 7 years and it comes out excellent everytime and is well received. It can be used for any meal of the day or a side snack at a party or gathering. I had men eating 2-3 pieces and loving it at an oyster roast until their wives told them it had spinach in it, then they would not eat it. Their problem. The only thing I do different is add some hot sauce to it. It has been a hit everytime ever since I first saw the show many years ago. Maybe thos that had it turn out runny don't sweat their mushrooms enough. got to get all the water out. Good recipe Emeril. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Followed the recipe, it was runny and very bland. I didn't like this particular recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was a good recipe but I wasn't crazy about the ricotta cheese in it. I think next time I used sour cream instead. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is good, but not quite the texture I was hoping for. Tastes great, though, and keeps for a while in the fridge. We had leftovers for several days! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I kicked up the pepper call and added some other spices to this dish but it still came out a little bland. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was a good recipe but I like dishes with more flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The only change I made to the recipe was to make it sans mushrooms. It was a big hit around my house. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The ingredients in the recipe looked good on paper but something was ?off?. This is the first time I didn?t care for one of Emeril?s recipes. No flavor, too much spinach. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was pretty good, nothing special -- it's basically a spinach-artichoke dip with eggs. I think it would work better for brunch than for dinner. (If I made it again, I'd turn it into a strata by using bread chunks instead of crumbs.) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Been searching for a recipe for a dish with spinch, mushrooms & artichokes in a cream sauce. I first tasted it at a Wedding Reception in California. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a winner! I made it with just a few minor revisions. I used portobella mushrooms in lieu of the button mushrooms, 2% shredded cheese and 2 whole eggs with the equivalent of 4 eggs with egg whites. I will definitely make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
5 Star recipe. Everyone was raving about it at Thanksgiving. They couldn't get enough of it. Absolutely delicious and easy to prepare. Thanks Emeril for another delectable recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I served this dish along side the your Mexican Breakfast Casserole, to our mens group at church. I was a breakfast meeting and I must say, this dish was outstanding. What I loved about it was our wives were the most impressed, the flavor, and texture and ingredients were just perfect. The preparation effort was well worth the result. So in addition to 5 stars you get at least 5 bams and a God richly bless you Emrile. Thank you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a wonderful recipe for my veggie friends and EVERYONE enjoyed it. Not to difficult for novices and even better the next day. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I took this to a 4th of July Picnic. I can't tell you how many people told me it was wounderful and the ones that could cook ask for the recipe. I spent the next day emailing them the recipe. Thank you for making my day. I love to make people happy with food. I think they know I care Kathy Denver Co. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed the recipe to a tee and did not like the texture along with the runnyness of the cooked product. Had a great taste though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so good, even better than I expected. The only modification I made was to use drained marinated artichoke hearts which added a ton of flavor. I halved the recipe and still had at least 6 servings. item not reviewed by moderator and published
How could ingredients like these yield a blah, disappointing product? I can't figure it out but it did. Even worse the next day. The spinach overpowered the other ingredients. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very rich dish but delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Even the ones who hate spinach raved about this casserole. I added extra artichokes to the recipe (personal taste) and the teens didn't realise what was in it, they lapped it up. Warning ... this is incredibly rich, so it will likely serve more than the number indicated if you are serving adults. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent and easy. I made a few changes: I used 7 eggs instaed of 6 and I added 1 cup of milk and a splash of hot sauce to the eggs. I also sauteed the mushrooms with a splash of red wine and included a 1/2 red bell pepper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the recipe pretty closely. It was made the day before a dinner party and reheated really well with foil over it for about 1/2 an hour on 350. It went great with lamb chops. Didn't go over so well with the kids but I didn't expect it to!! I'd make it again but next time I think I'll leave a little more water in the mushrooms and put them in a layer in the bottem of the pan. Yummy item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was my first attempt with one of Ermeril's recipes. I did this as a side dish for Easter dinner. t was tasty but too heavy with the vegetables - possibly cut down the amount of spinach, artichoke hearts and mushrooms. I chopped up the artichoke hearts more. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a family gathering, and everyone raved. With the eggs, it almost tastes like a fritatta. I've already gotten requests for the recipe. Delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this dish for the second time day before yesterday, and it is definitely better the day after it is prepared. I will try freezing the leftovers, as one other person has done. First time I prepared it was for a church dinner, and nothing was left to bring home. Definitely a "keeper" recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
great recipe, made it for family and everybody loved it, i added some cream to the recipe to make it creamier item not reviewed by moderator and published
made this as a side dish for Thanksgiving - everyone loved it. I modified the recipe though - I reduced the eggs to 3 as 6 seems to be too much. Still turned out very good though - thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this dish for Thanksgiving this year instead of our traditional stuffed artichokes and it was just out of this world. Everyone loved it and has requested the recipe. I may sound crazy but It's sooo good that I don't want to share the recipe with anyone! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was definitely better the next day. I even froze it, and it was still good. Pretty simple to make, though I thought the artichokes gave it a bitter flavor, maybe I just need to rinse off the salt water better next time. It was a hit with all of my non vegetarian friends, very hearty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful!! Easy! Crowd pleasing!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
easy to make; made a large portion that taste great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was kind of bland and did;t have nearly enough flavor for my taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I missed this program, only to see Emeril serving this dish. So I think I missed a few "tricks". I will try making this again and changing how I mix the ingredients together as the spinach, artichoke, cheese misture was hard to get thoroughly mixed. Recipe called for cutting artichoke hearts in quarters -- I might cut them a little smaller. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe got rave reviews at my daughter's 50th birthday ,recently. Everyone wanted the recipe,which I happily shared.Emeril has done it again and again and again!!! Thank You SOOO much. Mickie item not reviewed by moderator and published
