Mysterygirl- Thansk for sharing. How can you go wrong with heavy cream, garlic and butter?!? Did have to really drain the spinach so as not to dilute the heavenly base.
Serves 8. Well, this is a little embarrassing, but it's said that honesty is the best policy. I made said 8 servings and single-handedly ate them all by myself in one sitting. Nap time. Trouble is, I have the makings for another serving of 8 as soon as I wake up. Boy, this is good. I thought about adding a few sprinkles of crushed red pepper flakes, but I think I'll appreciate it just as it is for at least a few more 8-serving-sized helpings.
This is delicious! My sons ate a little even though it is SPINACH!! It is not something that you want to make ahead of time, as it really just needs to be mixed while piping hot and baked only for the cheese on top to get golden brown. I used 2 boxes of frozen spinach, with the moisture squeezed out, and it was wonderful. It is good leftover with tortilla chips too!
I finally found it! Mom and I have been trying a new Creamed Spinach recipe every year and always been disappointed. (Really, when Boston Market is better than homemade, that's sad sad sad!) This is finally it: the Holy Grail of Creamed Spinach recipes! Only suggestion I have is to find WHITE sharp cheddar, 'cause the yellowy orange stuff looked a little weird with the green spinach. Tasted wonderful, though!
yum, yum yum, big hit with the DH and myself, will be making this again!!! I did notice that all that spinach (I used baby spinach) gave off some excess water so I would recommend draining off any excess liquid before adding the cream.
I did have to thicken it with a cooked butter/flour mixture. I also used part parmasian cheese It was excellent.
This was some delicious creamed spinach. I actually only made half the recipe because I only needed a little bit of it as an ingredient in another recipe. I didnt have fresh spinach, so I just used frozen. I didnt bake it either, I just added all the cheese in the pan and let it melt together. I did have to add a little more butter and cream to get the creaminess that I wanted. I tasted it before using it in another dish, and it was very good! I bet this would be good with a little bit of bacon sauteed in it also! Yum! Whenever I need some creamed spinach this is the recipe to go to.
I used 1 cup low-fat sour cream and 1 cup condensed milk. It was fantastic!
This is a fabulous side dish that was hearty enough that I would have been happy with it alone for dinner. I reduced the recipe to just enough for Hubby and I and baked in individual ramekins to keep the creamy sauce from weeping into the everything on our dinner plate. I needn't had worried. Served with Mean Chef's Steak Au Poivre and Best Baked Potato, Hubby dunked both his steak and bites of potato into the wonderful cheesiness of this creamed spinach. It was a great meal, and this dish will be repeated.
Sorry, I tried this recipe as written and it was just ok, but this recipe is not the same one that Emeril Lagasse has on the Food Network site. His calls for 1/2 cup heavy cream to 2 lbs fresh spinach, 1/4 tsp of nutmeg and no cheddar cheese. I then tried his recipe as written and loved it. So, unless he has more than one creamed spinach recipe posted, this is quite different.
