  • 8 oz baby portabella mushrooms sliced
  • 3 green onion thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 3 boxes boxes frozen cut leaf spinach thawed and drained
  • 2 cups half & half
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese divided
  • 2 cup shredded sharp white cheddar or Gruyere cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a 2 quart shallow baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.

  • Add the sliced mushrooms and onion to drippings. Cook for 3-5 minutes over medium-high until softened and beginning to brown.

  • Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheese.
  • Toss the panko breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese with 2 Tbsp melted butter and sprinkle on top of the cheese.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and bubbly.
