Creamed Spinach (Like Boston Market)

Total Time

This is by far the best creamed spinach recipe that I have ever tasted! My mother got married in early Nov and my brother (a chef) served Bar-B-Qued Filet Mignon, oven roasted red potatoes, this creamed spinach, salad and garlicy cheesy bread - Talk about heaven!! The creamed spinach stole the show and 1/2 the guests left with the recipe! He found the recipe on the internet, it is a copy cat recipe of Boston Market's creamed spinach. (I think it's better).

We loved this delicious side. My husband commented that this is the best spinach he has ever eaten and I can only agree. I halved the recipe for the two of us and followed it precisely, except for adding the water in step 6; my thawed spinach still had moisture in it that I couldn't completely squeeze out, so I only added an extra tablespoon of water. Thanks for posting, Renee!

OH MY MY!!! This came out soooo good... The only thing I did differently was add a little more onion and garlic, and I used a 4 cheese freshly shredded blend of Asiago, Fontina, Parmesan & Provolone.... Will definitely make this again!

I loved it! It's a really great and forgiving recipe. I substituted onion powder for the grated onion and grated parm in a can because I didn't know whether to use that or fresh. Also, I used a 12 oz bag of spinach rather than take a measly 2 oz out. I'm not sure that my opinion really counts considering I took so many liberties with the recipe. But what the heck, I was still fantastic!
