Potato and spinach bake

        This baked dish I ate at a German friend's place. We just fell in love with it.It has the goodness of spinach and potatoes which the kids love. It can be kept away and can be made into small squares and given at school too for lunch box.
Thinly sliced potatoes                          4-5 large
Sliced onion                                        1 large
Chopped garlic                                    1 tbsp
Olive oil                                              1 tbsp
Pepper                                                 1/2 tsp
Seasoning of choice                            1/2 tsp
Milk                                                    1/2 cup
Frozen spinach with cream                 400 gms
(Alternatively- blanched,crushed spinach mixed with 1/2 cup cream and seasoning)
Grated cheese                                    100 gms
Salt to taste

In a baking dish, smear the base with butter.
In a bowl,mix in sliced potatoes,onions, garlic,salt, oil and seasoning.
Put this into the baking dish and spread evenly.
Pour the milk on it.
Season the spinach mixture and spread evenly on the potato mixture.
Cover this with grated cheese.Put this into a pre heated oven at 200 deg for 20 mins.
Reduce the heat to 150deg and bake further till the liquid is evaporated, potatoes are cooked through (check by poking a fork in) and cheese is browned well.
Serve hot with garlic bread.Or cool, refrigerate and cut into squares.
