  6. Add in the flour; whisk constantly for about 2 minutes or until very smooth.

  12. Add in the sherry, cook until almost evaporated; stir onion mixture into cream sauce.
  13. Add 1/2 cup cream sauce to the spinach mixture (adding more sauce, if necessary, for a creamy but not soupy mixture).

  15. Sprinkle cheese over the top of each and bake on a heavy baking sheet in a 350° oven for about 10 minutes or until golden.
