Breakfast Casserole with Spinach and Cheddar Cheese


  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) Saputo butter
  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 1 L (4 cups) 2% milk, heated
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 5 to 6 potatoes, peeled
  • 400 g (12 oz) Saputo Triple Cheddar Shredded Cheese
  • 1 L (4 cups) fresh spinach, washed
  • ½ onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 eggs, beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. To make the béchamel, melt butter in pot set over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour and continue whisking until mixture turns into a paste, about 5 minutes (do not let brown).
  3. Gradually add the milk and continue whisking. Add the nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Continue cooking 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
  4. In a pot set over high heat, bring salted water to a boil. On a working surface, use a mandolin to slice potatoes 1/8-inch thick. Cook in boiling water for 2 minutes. Let cool and strain.
  5. Spread a small quantity of the béchamel in bottom of oven-safe casserole dish. Place potato slices over the béchamel and pour approximately 1 cup of béchamel over top. Add 1 cup of spinach and a handful of onions.
  6. Add eggs and repeat step 5 until all the ingredients have been used up, finishing with the Saputo Triple Cheddar Shredded Cheese. Bake in the centre of the oven for 35 minutes.
