It is a mouth-watering, creamy, and rich side dish and tastes wonderful with chicken and fresh rolls.

I was shocked by how little flavor this had considering it begins w/onion garlic and bacon! I kept taking a bite searching for the flavor I never did find. Perhaps one less box of spinach may make a difference? THANKS for the recipe mommy_of_six! Read More

A good version of creamed spinach if you are short on time. Use large cloves of garlic and onion salt for a little more flavor. Freshly grated Parmesan on top. Yum! Read More

I am grateful for these quick and easy one-pot recipes. I used olive oil instead of butter, turkey bacon instead of pork bacon, and non-dairy coffee creamer instead of milk or half and half. I also added lemon juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and oregano to the recipe. It was a really easy dish to make, and it turned out so delicious. I will be making creamed spinach this way from now on. Read More
