Creamed Spinach

2 10-oz pkgs frozen spinach
2 TBSP salted butter
1/2 cup finely chopped shallots
1 tsp minced garlic
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup heavy cream

1 cup shredded cheese  (Gruyere I feel is the best for this dish, but Gouda adds a smoky yumminess too!)

Melt the butter in medium sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and garlic and cook, stirring, until soft and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the spinach and cook, stirring, just until the liquid is released. Add the cream, salt, pepper, and nutmeg, and cook until the cream is reduced by half, about 4 minutes. Place entire mixture in a baking dish and cover with shredded cheese. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until cheese is golden and bubbly. Serve immediately.
