1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach
2-3 large tomatoes, cut into 3/4 inch slices
1/2 cup dry Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 cup chopped green onions (white and green parts)
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
2-3 dashes hot pepper sauce (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 13x9 inch baking dish.
2. Cook spinach according to package directions. Drain well in a colander, pressing with paper towels to remove most of the liquid.
3. Arrange tomato slices in a single layer in prepared pan.
Combine breadcrumbs, green onions, eggs, butter, Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, thyme and hot sauce (if using) in a medium bowl. Add spinach; mix well.
4. Spoon equal amounts of the spinach mixture on top of each tomato slice.
Bake uncovered 15 minutes.
