How to Drain Thawed Frozen Spinach

When recipes call for thawed spinach to be "well drained," this means the excess liquid must be pressed or squeezed out. Use clean hands to squeeze out portions of the spinach, or place the spinach in a sieve and press on it with the back of a large spoon.

Thawing Ground Beef Safely

To thaw ground beef safely, keep the meat wrapped and thaw it in the refrigerator -- not on the countertop. Store on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator to prevent any drippings from cross-contaminating other foods. Use thawed meat within 2 days.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disaster I wish I would have read this recipe better before trying to make it. Did you even taste this before you posted it? The meat mixture tasted nasty before I added salt! There was no seasoning to the meat mixture at all. And, who taught you to make mashed potatoes. 1 ½ pounds of potatoes and ½ cup cream cheese??? Are you kidding me? It had the texture of paste. I don’t mean glue…I mean old fashioned paste. Thank God I forgot to add the spinach that would have made it even worse. Of course I had to add salt to the potatoes as well. Makes me question my other Kraft® recipes.
