A little different than regular creamed spinach because of the cheese a good way to get my kids to eat spinach

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the spinach in a large pot with just the water clinging to its leaves, cover, and cook until wilted, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Drain well and squeeze dry.
  3. In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat, add the spinach, cream, nutmeg and salt and stir well.
  4. Sprinkle on the cheese.
  5. I use the full amount of cheese because we like a lot of cheese if you prefer less use less.
  6. Turn off the heat, cover the pot and let sit for a few minutes until the cheese melts.
  7. Serve immediately.

This had a terrific flavor and my husband said it was a "keeper." We only had grated Parmesan cheese, so that's what I used. Will definately make again.

Fantastic dish! We loved it. I used fresh grated swiss cheese instead, as I didn't have any parmigiano-reggiano cheese, and it turned out great! Thanks for sharing...this one is a keeper!

This will forever onward be known here as "Punkie's spinach"! Really superb. I only made half as it was just dh and I, wish I'd made the full recipe-it was that good!!! Don't you just love what fresh nutmeg does for spinach? Thanx Punkie!!
