I'm not a huge fan of spinach, but creamed spinach I love! The creamy goodness is hard not to love. So I decided to make a go at it and I think it came out great! I think this gives better flavor then other recipes that just use heavy cream. 2 of us ate it so I say it serves 2, but honestly l could have eaten the whole thing myself! I hope you enjoy :)

How to Make Creamed Spinach

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain spinach, removing as much liquid as possible. I put it in a sifter and used a fork to push the spinach against the sides.
  2. Add all ingredients except shredded cheese to a medium sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring regularly, until cream cheese melts fully and becomes smooth.
  3. Add shredded cheese and mix until completely melted. Serve hot. Enjoy!
