"This is quite similar to the creamed spinach at Boston Market, well so I'm told anyway! --- this is a great side dish, even people that hate spinach love this, it's great to serve along side a holiday turkey or a ham dinner, or at any meal --- I also like to saute about 2 teaspoons fresh minced garlic and a pinch of cayenne pepper in the butter for about 2 minutes before adding in the flour but that is optional, add in some grated Parmesan cheese too if desired, this complete recipe can be doubled :)"

"This was a fast, simple, pretty side dish. I used cream instead of 1/2 and 1/2 and omitted the sour cream because I didn't have any. I considered subbing yogurt, but it was delicious as it was. Some might prefer the tangy sour cream to cut the richness. The sauce seemed too thick at first, but when the spinach was added, it thinned slightly and was the perfect consistency. I will make this again, soon!"
"Thank you for the wonderful recipe! I brought it as my side dish for Thanksgiving dinner and for a friend's Christmas dinner. My family and friend's loved it, so I am going to make it again for Christmas Eve dinner. "
"Three words. O. M. G. I made this with sour dock from my garden, a horrible spinach-like plant that grows like a weed, but this elevated it to superstar status! I used all the optional ingredients, garlic, cayenne and parmesan. The only thing I would do differently next time is eliminate the sour cream. The white sauce is so incredibly yummy as is, there's no need for the tang of the sour cream. Thanks!"
"Turned out great to use in a casserole. Recipe #39125."
"Excellent dish. My family loves creamed spinach and your recipe was no exception. I did add 1/2 a package of onion soup mix to the sauce but otherwise followed your recipe. Thank you for sharing with us. This is a repeat recipe for sure."
"This was good and fairly easy to make. The next time I make this I will use fresh spinach as I learned today that we really don't like frozen. I had never eaten or prepared frozen spinach. Thanks for a great recipe that I can adapt to fit our tastes Kittencal!"
"I made this using fresh spinach. It was quite good."
"I wish I could give this 10 stars. I loved this so much. Everyone enjoyed it. I think it tasted very similar to and better than Boston Markets. I will make this again for sure. I used seasoned salt, whole milk, and didn't add garlic or cayenne. It was delicious!"
"This creamed spinach recipe was good and we enjoyed it very much. I have never tried Boston Market's version of creamed spinach so I can't really make a comparison. I think the sauce was very good, but was not as flavorful as I expected. DH enjoyed it and gave it a thumbs up! Will definitely make this dish again. Made for Best of 2012 tag."
"I have not had Boston Markets' spinach, but this is excellent! I didn't add the cayenne or garlic and it was perfect for my taste. Will be making this again! Made for I Recommend Holiday Tag."
"This is the first time I've made creamed spinach and it turned out great - I even made a smooth, creamy white sauce which is NOT the norm for me. Don't know what Boston Market taste like, but this one is great. I made as directed and used the optional garlic and cayenne as we love a bit of kick to ours - the taste of this reminded me of some we'd always get when eating out in Italy that we loved. Thanks Kitten for another great recipe."
"Mmmmm, good! Its been a very long time since I had the creamed spinach from Boston Market, so can't really compare. Nevertheless, this was absolutely delicious!!! Not an everyday dish (ouch, my heart!) but a real treat once in a while!"
"Stellar! Entire family loved it (a rarity) from ages 7-44. I did use the optional garlic, fresh parmesean cheese, and chipotle powder for the cayenne pepper. Also used home-sprouted flour for my flour. This will be a keeper and most likely win a spot on holiday menus, as I find it somewhat difficult to find "greens" recipes that all like. Thanks so much!"
"Gorgeous! Had to add quite a bit of parmesan, but even finished up the leftovers for breakfast, on a toasted muffin with a poached egg. Didn't have any sour cream so just left it out"
"This was so good! Made as written and added garlic and a dash of nutmeg. Will definitely make again!"
"this is sooooooooooooo good! and so close to the original too! i've made it for dinner and many a pot luck too. it's always a big hit. delish!"
"Delicious and easy to make....I will make this again soon! Thanks for posting this recipe :O)"
"This was a beautiful dish and the whole family ate it. I was worried the white sauce was too thick after I cooked it but after everything was added together it thinned out and made it perfect."
"I don't know about Boston Market, Kitten, but this was very, very good.....The only way I deviated from the recipe was to really brown the butter, as I think it gives it a little bit of nutty taste, which I enjoy in creamed spinach. I did not use the cayenne, but did use some fresh roasted garlic I had made. I opted not to use the Parmesan. Will have this again, and soon! Thnx for posting."
"This was delicious! Even my kids loved it. I did add some fresh garlic and cayenne pepper to the butter. Served with steak and garlic bread. Thanks for sharing!"
