  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 Yukon Gold potatoes (about 2-1/2 lb/1.25 g)
  • 2 pkg (10 oz/284 g each) fresh spinach trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • 4 oz herbed cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 12 oz thinly sliced smoked salmon

Method

In large pot of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes for 10 minutes. Using slotted spoon, remove and let cool slightly. Add spinach to pot; cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Drain, pressing out liquid; let cool.

Cut potatoes into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices; gently toss with half each of the salt and pepper. Set aside.

In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in milk; cook, stirring, until thickened, about 8 minutes. Stir in cream cheese, chopped dill, lemon rind and remaining salt and pepper.

Pour 1 cup (250 mL) of the sauce into 13- x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish. Arrange one-third of the potatoes over sauce; layer spinach, chopped green onions, half of the remaining potatoes then the smoked salmon over top. Top with remaining potatoes. Pour remaining sauce over top. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Cover with foil; bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake until bubbly, about 30 minutes. Broil until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
