This recipe for Keto Creamed Spinach Casserole is one I came up with when I’d decided to make a creamed spinach side dish. You know, like the ones you get in great steakhouses.

Could you substitute the cottage cheese, I hate it.

I left the cottage cheese out altogether because it adds more carbs than I wanted - my dish was good without it!

You could substitute it with ricotta cheese if you like. How do you feel about that? Or, if you're not a fan of that, maybe goat cheese, but that has quite a strong flavor so unless you're a fan, I'd stick with the ricotta. Hope this helps... Have a great weekend! Renee

Can I get the macros for the spinach cheese casserole?

This looks wonderful! I have a spinach gratin recipe that's similar, but I think this will be even better. I can't wait to try it, and I will next week for sure. I bet adding chicken would make it a good meal. And mushrooms! So many ideas now! But I'll wait until after I try this recipe as is first. Thank you!
