My Incredible Creamed Spinach

IMG_0700

If your grilling some steaks there is nothing that goes with it like creamed spinach.  I have tried different recipes of this and have modified those into my own which is fantastic.  I don’t use frozen spinach.  It’s always best to use fresh.

Ingredients
 
2  10 oz. packages of fresh spinach
1/2 stick of butter
1/4 cup of flour
12 oz of half and half
2 cloves of garlic minced
just a little portion of chopped onion
1/4   tablespoon of salt
1/4 tablespoon of pepper
a few dashes of nutmeg
 
Directions:
 
In soup pot bring water to boil.  Take your bags of spinach and cook about 5 minutes.  Drain spinach in colindar, let cool then squeeze as much water out as possible.  This is a very important step.  You want as much water squeezed out as possible.  In pan melt butter, then add flour and make a roux.  After you have a paste add half and half.  Add garlic, salt, pepper and onion, bring to boil and then simmer for about another 5 minutes.  Now take the spinach and add to the sauce.  Add nutmeg and simmer for approximately 10 minutes.  This is now ready to be served as a side dish.  It is so perfect to go with a big fat steak !!!!
