    Hey Jude's Note:

    The famous Berghoff's restaurant, in Chicago, closed it's doors this past week after 107 years in business. Their recipes were a closely guarded secret but they did share the ingredient list for their famed creamed spinach. The Chicago Tribune food editors played around with the list and came up with this recipe, which tastes exactly like the spinach at the restaurant.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Melt the butter in a medium skillet. Add the onion; cook over medium heat until tender, 5-6 minutes. Stir in the flour; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Whisk in the milk. Cook, stirring often, until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Stir in the chicken base, salt, nutmeg and pepper. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Squeeze the thawed spinach to remove as much water as possible. Add the spinach to the cream sauce; mix well. Cook until spinach absorbs some of the sauce, about 5 minutes.

      A must-try recipe for spinach lovers. Just so creamy and delicious. The only change I made was to add 4 cloves of minced garlic when the onions were about half cooked in step one. The chicken bouillon added heaps of flavour, and the nutmeg was a wonderful addition. This recipe is quick to make and, as a spinach lover, I'll be making it again. Just remembered, in the last few minutes of cooking, I also added a handful of baby spinach leaves that needed to be used. Thank you for posting this wonderfully flavoursome recipe!

      YUM! I really loved this recipe. It was creamy and full of flavor. I left out the nutmeg as I don't care for it much, but the dish was great even without it! Rave reviews from the SO and his family (and 15 year old son)! Thanks a lot for posting...this one is a keeper.
