"Savory creamed spinach flavored with onions and bacon. My guests love this. It's not difficult but needs a couple of pans and constant stirring. We think it's worth the work!" — LisaB

2 (10 ounce) packages
frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
ground black pepper
This has a wonderful flavor, however, it wasn't creamy enough for me. Next time I will double everything except the spinach. Still a great recipe! Thanks Lisa!
This was good but not great. However, my husband went back for seconds and he hates spinach. I used less spinach than the recipe called for (maybe 12 oz) and still found I had to add more milk and garlic powder than what the recipe called for. I also added some fresh parmesan cheese as well. Thanks!
I thought this was great. I was not crazy about the bacon so I think next time I will use it as a topper rather than part of the dish. I used fresh spinach rather than frozen. Fresh garlic rather than powder. I also added fresh grated parmesan cheese just before serving. I also would have liked it more creamer so I will experiment with that next time.
it was goooood...
I did use fresh Spinach about 10oz, chopped garlic glove (about 3 medium size),grana padano cheese, and pre-cooked chopped sausage.
make sure you sateed the garlic, onions, sausage with butter first then spinach til the water is almost dry. then add the milk, cheese, butter, and flour. continue to stir it til very creamy.
I thought this was great just the way it is. I followed the recipe though cut in half since its just my husband and I. It made the perfect amount for both of us as a side dish. We try to stay low carb so this is a great side dish option. Thanks!
I was searching but could not find a previous recipe so I thought I'd give this one a try. It wasn't till after I started that I realized the recipe called for two packages of spinach and I only had one. I used all ingredients as called for except the one package and I cut back on the milk by 1/4 cup. I added a little nutmeg too. Although the bacon was good....it's not my favorite flavor to go with the creamed spinach. I might try some parmesan next time too. Thanks!
I didn't have any butter, so I actually fried the bacon, and then used the bacon fat in place of the butter. Yummy!
THIS IS A KEEPER.....I have 3 kids who hate cooked spinach, but they asked for 2nd and 3rds...I even added a little left over rice and cheese....AWESOME RECIPE...Thanks for sharing...I have printed and put this in a safe place...
