I love having frozen spinach on hand for those nights where I want a quick, easy, and tasty side dish to go with what I’m making. Since I’ve been trying to focus on mainly easy recipes, I thought creamed spinach was a perfect addition to that list. It’s rich, it’s savory, and it has a delicious thick and creamy texture.
As a kid, I never really liked the stuff – I mean, who liked spinach back then anyway? I thought it was disgusting when my parents made it for themselves, but over time I really grew to enjoy the leafy green. In fact, I eat it almost every day – from salads, to stuffing, to side dishes like this.
So, grab a fork, and dig in!
