I made this today with some small variations that I don't think changed the intent of the dish too much, but perhaps.. I used kale instead of spinach but prepared it in the same manner, I used EggStirs instead of real eggs to save on calories and cholesterole. I enriched the milk by using 1/4 evaporated milk, 1/4 cup plain yogurt and 1/2 cup skim milk. My topping is a mixture of some fresh sour dough bread crumbs that I needed to use up and Almond Accents. So yeah its differnent but I believe it cooked up the same as intended. Picture posted.
