  1. Heat olive oil in saute pan over medium heat. Add spinach and cover for 1 minute to steam. Uncover and stir spinach until it is wilted. Drain spinach, dry between paper towels, and chop. Melt butter in the same pan over medium heat. Add shallots and saute for a minute. Add heavy cream and nutmeg; stir to combine. Add chopped spinach and combine thoroughly. Remove from heat when spinach is creamy. Add salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a separate saute pan; add shallots and white wine vinegar. Cook until all liquid has evaporated, about a minute. Remove from the pan; set aside to cool.
  3. Add egg yolk and lemon juice to blender; slowly blend in half cup of melted butter until mixture is smooth and creamy. Pour into shallots mixture. Stir in chopped fresh tarragon.
  4. To assemble bites, place about 1-1/2 teaspoons creamed spinach on top of a RITZ Cracker. Place a slice of steak on top of the creamed spinach, then drizzle with about 1-1/2 teaspoon bearnaise sauce over the steak.

Wow! These are amazing. I prepared these for a wedding shower I was hosting -- they guys went crazy for these appetizers. I was looking to save money (and time) so I used rare roast beef sliced from my supermarket deli instead of the beef tenderloin.

I ate an entire sleeve of Ritz Crackers watching the 'Hawks win yesterday. I'm buying another box and a 7lb tenderloin for the Superbowl. GO HAWKS!

My hubby grunted and moaned over these little but yet hearty morsels. There was noting but nothing wrong or disliked about these. The creamed spinach was delish and I think I could make myself a huge bowl of that stuff, and the béarnaise was wonderful, I'd never made it before, ate it, but never made it and it was quite simple. I over did the steak a little but hubby likes it that way. And said it was just fine. These were perfect in every way. Will make again for sure. Making these earned me a huge kiss on the cheek and coffee served to me after dinner instead of me making it myself. What a reward! Thanks Doug.

I will be completely honest. I love my recipe concept. Personally I like a thicker chunk of steak on the cracker than what was approved for my recipe but that is really up to you. You can also use the heartier RITZ Crackers (wheat) as well. Remember, Bearnaise is harder to spell than it is to make.

I was hungry for lunch today. I had leftover steak. I had leftover Ritz crackers. I had all the other ingredients listed. I don't do cooked spinach, so I made a substitution of just using arugula. When I got to the Béarnaise Sauce, I panicked when I saw TARRAGON in the instructions! WHAT?!? I subbed fresh thyme because that's all I had on hand. But this is a yummy little munchy lunch for me today. I'm not sharing it with anyone! Thanks, Doug!

Good job, Doug! I followed your recipe exactly but I used sliced Porterhouse steak. The Bearnaise sauce is perfect. I did sort of gild the lily as it were, by using Ritz garlic butter flavor crackers. The two ladies I shared these with we're skeptical at first but wildly enthusiastic after the first bite! Thanks

What is better than Ritz Crackers, Steak, Creamed Spinach and Bearnaise Sauce, not much! Great recipe.

This recipe is the greatest idea since Ritz Crackers! It was a little too hoity-toity for me but the recipe and idea is brilliant. I decided to use the it in a different way. I kept the steak but substituted grilled onions and american cheese for the Bearnaise and spinach and did a riff on a steakhouse-style Cheesesteak. I guess there's a reason this guy is an all-star....
