This was a fast, simple, pretty side dish. I used cream instead of 1/2 and 1/2 and omitted the sour cream because I didn't have any. I considered subbing yogurt, but it was delicious as it was. Some might prefer the tangy sour cream to cut the richness. The sauce seemed too thick at first, but when the spinach was added, it thinned slightly and was the perfect consistency. I will make this again, soon!
Three words. O. M. G. I made this with sour dock from my garden, a horrible spinach-like plant that grows like a weed, but this elevated it to superstar status! I used all the optional ingredients, garlic, cayenne and parmesan. The only thing I would do differently next time is eliminate the sour cream. The white sauce is so incredibly yummy as is, there's no need for the tang of the sour cream. Thanks!
Thank you for the wonderful recipe! I brought it as my side dish for Thanksgiving dinner and for a friend's Christmas dinner. My family and friend's loved it, so I am going to make it again for Christmas Eve dinner.
I just made this .... and I love it ! I didn't have any frozen spinach just a few cups of fresh ; and added 1 minced garlic clove .I'm going to try it with peas !! Thank you !
This was amazing. I used heavy whipping cream with some water (maybe 3/4 c heavy cream, 1/4 c water), forgot the onion so used onion powder, didn't add sour cream and didn't add any extra water because I didn't drain my spinach. I also used less than a 1/4 c of parmesan, but didn't measure. We both loved it!
I grew up eating the creamed spinach at Boston Market (far enough back when it was Boston Chicken) and I would say that I was ready to be disappointed. When I read the recipe, it seemed to lack the spice element I would expect. I stuck close to the recipe except for the addition of a 1/2tsp of paprika and a dash of nutmeg to the onions. Instead of water, I used white wine, and finished off with an extra 50% of cheese. In the end, it was very flavorful and didn't need comparison; it was tasty in its own right.
Turned out great to use in a casserole. Turkey Tetrazzini Florentine Casserole.
Excellent dish. My family loves creamed spinach and your recipe was no exception. I did add 1/2 a package of onion soup mix to the sauce but otherwise followed your recipe. Thank you for sharing with us. This is a repeat recipe for sure.
This was good and fairly easy to make. The next time I make this I will use fresh spinach as I learned today that we really don't like frozen. I had never eaten or prepared frozen spinach. Thanks for a great recipe that I can adapt to fit our tastes Kittencal!
I made this using fresh spinach. It was quite good.
