Holy Thursday is known as Green Thursday in Germany and other mid-European countries, where spinach is always served on this day, probably in remembrance of the green bitter herbs served at the paschal feast on the occasion of the Last Supper.

Even if your family is not fond of spinach, we think they will like it prepared this way:

DIRECTIONS

Scald milk; add bread crumbs, salt, and butter or margarine. Beat egg yolks. Add milk mixture to egg yolks. Cook over hot water, stirring constantly, until thickened. Cool. Chop spinach; add with cheese; mix well. Beat egg whites stiff; fold in. Pour into greased baking dish; set in pan of warm water. Bake at 350° for 1 hour. Serve immediately. Makes 6 servings.
