The Solution to Canned Spinach

My family loves this. It started out in Peg Bracken's "I Hate To Cook Book", but I didn't have any fresh onions one day, and I had everything else. It's easy and fast. Double or treble to serve however many you need to feed. It's always a success at holiday dinners. Leftovers reheat nicely if there's any left.

This was waaaaaaaay too simple to be so good! Sour cream is one of my favorite comfort foods. Fried onions are also up there at the top of the list. It seems that I've been a little too much into comfort foods over the past few years and I'm now on a low carb diet to get back to my pre-overdoing-it states. This recipe is just perfect, it fits my comfort food needs and is still legal for me to eat! I used 2 pounds of fresh spinach, wilted in the microwave. Then I added the sour cream, and a healthy dose of paprika and a little hot sauce. I fried my own onions until golden and crisp, and had this together with Ginny P's cauliflower. Leftovers for lunch today, and I can hardly wait!

Well, who would ever imagine that you can dress up canned spinach? This recipe was really delicious and almost too easy to prepare. The sour cream and onions are a great combination to add to the spinach. I drained the spinach well before adding the sour cream so the finished dish wouldn't become too watery. Thanks for sharing this excellent keeper.

Like magic for canned spinach! Added some Creole seasoning and spicy smoky chipotle sauce to the mix.
