If you love fresh spinach, you will love this recipe that I found on Paula Deen's website. I had to double this recipe for Easter Dinner and should have tripled it because it disappeared too quickly. I think I was surprised a little that it did disappear so fast but maybe because it was made fresh it went over so well. I look forward to having this again. Great recipe!!! ----- It has a much more delicate flavor instead of canned spinach and the fresh nutmeg is a wonderful touch.
