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!
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!
One word: DELICIOUS!!!!! Used a little more onion and garlic, for our taste. Also, didn't have 1/2 and 1/2 so I used 1/2 skim and 1/2 heavy cream and 2 12 oz bags of cut leaf spinach. This is absolutely to die for good!!!
Oh my... so delicious!!! My hubby, my son (picky teen) and I all loved it!! I will for sure make this again.. I didn't have half and half, so I used 7/8 cup milk with 1/2 Tbsp butter and it was awesome!!! Thank you for this recipe!!
Absolutely fantastic recipe, and with apologies to Chef #1464947, you apparently did not follow the recipe. The measurements are perfect. I doubled this, as it freezes beautifully! I also ADDED about a half pound of crispy fried bacon, and crumbled it into the mixture. I then sprinkled fresh grated parmesan cheese over the top and baked it for about 20 to 30 minutes. I made it a second time, added a bit extra cream cheese and canned milk along with some shredded crab meat and artichoke hearts and served with tortilla chips as a dip. It disappeared so fast, it's almost like it never existed! A MAJOR HIT! Thank you.
Delicious! Its verrrrry creamy so I added a lot more spinach and some baby bella mushrooms without adding more liquid at all. I also added nutmeg because I think it really opens up the other flavors. The Parm really kicks it up too. Yum.
Bloody great Love the idea of adding the spinach as most recipes require you to wilt it first in boiling water and then squeeze out (all the goodness) Added white wine to the spinach anyway. First time I ever had this was on Paxos and I think they may have used Feta instead of Cream Cheese. So will try that next time but this was a great recipe.
Absolutely loved it. Had a fantastic creamed spinach in a fttabulous restaurant in Puerto Vallarta and couldn't wait to see if I could make something my family would try. I cooked bacon to right before it got crispy and snipped it to slivers and added to the spinach while it was cooking. I served it with a great rib eye and wonderful crusty bread and a lettuce wedge with blue cheese crumbled. I think I might run for fair queen after this!!!! It wa perfect combination of balance tand comfort. This fabulous dish was presented in an upscale restaurant in Puerto Vallarpp ta. I thought I could do it so I duplicated bread the lettuce wedge with blue cheese and Blueberries sprinkled on top. I added slivers of bacon to. X Blueberry lemonade finished the deal and everyone kept coming back to the spinach!
A Great recipe, and I followed it to the letter. I did not drain the spinach at all, and it came out perfect. Thank You So Much !!!!
A great recipe. Used milk b/c I didn't have h/h and added provolone cheese in addition to the park. and it tasted fantastic.
