Spinach feta bake

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 bunches Spinach; parboiled and torn
1 small Onion; finely chopped
4 tablespoons Butter
3 tablespoons Oatmeal flakes
½ cup Plus 3 tbsp flour
⅔ cup Milk
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Pepper
½ tablespoon Crushed celery leaves
4 Cloves garlic
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Sherry
8 ounces Feta cheese
1 pounds Bacon; strips
3 tablespoons Chopped almond
1 teaspoon Thyme
1 cup Chopped mushrooms
¼ cup Sunflower seeds

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Crisp the bacon in a covered pan in the oven, occasionally draining the grease into your 2 quart baking dish. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add onion, oatmeal, and 1 tbsp flour to butter and sauté one or two minutes. Crush the garlic cloves into the pan. Add milk, salt, pepper, celery, thyme, worcestershire, and mushrooms to pan and cook on low until the mix thickens. Add the feta cheese, stirring until liquidy. Add sunflower seeds and spinach. Stir until well blended. Remove pan from heat. Mix enough flour (about ½ cup) with the bacon grease you've been saving. You'll need enough dough for strips to cover the top of your baking dish. Crumble the crispy bacon into the baking dish. Add the almonds and flour, and cook at 400 degrees for ten minutes. Add the sauté mix. Roll the dough flat and cut into strips. Cover the top of the baking dish with criss-crossing strips of dough. Cook at 350 degrees for fifty to sixty minutes.
