induction friendly thanksgiving idea- creamed spinach casserole
I found this recipe on the Kraft website. The original called for 1/4 cup milk and 1/3 cup croutons. I substituted half and half for milk and pork rinds for croutons. I'm pretty sure it would taste good even without the croutons. I'm going to make the dish this week and will let you know how it turns out.
Here's the recipe:

I couldn't find the counts for lemon pepper anywhere. If anyone knows them, please share the info so the recipe can be adjusted- thanks.
