How to Make Garlicky Creamed Spinach
- Heat a large skillet on medium. Add spinach and cook until wilted and easily gathered into a mound with tongs, stirring constantly. Transfer to a colander and squeeze out all excess water. Transfer to a cutting board and chop coarsely.
- In the same skillet, heat oil on medium. Add garlic and stir occasionally until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Reduce heat to medium-low and add cheese and milk. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until cheese melts and mixture thickens into a smooth sauce, 2-3 minutes. Stir in salt, pepper and nutmeg. Taste and add more seasonings if needed.
- Add spinch to cheese mixture, separating with your hands; stir gently to coat.
