How To Make creamed (cheese) spinach

  • 1
    Thaw spinach and squeeze all the water out. (I put it in a colander and use a potato masher to squeeze all the water out.) Set aside.
  • 2
    In a large sauce pan, heat butter over medium heat. Add green onion and garlic, season with salt and pepper. Cook just until flavors are brought out.
  • 3
    Add cream cheese and milk, cook, stirring constantly until cream cheese is melted.
  • 4
    Stir in spinach and simmer until mixture is warmed through. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Garnish with a little grated parmesan cheese if desired.
