Creamed Spinach

If you’re looking for something new to serve on the side for Thanksgiving, try this one on! It’s uber creamy and yummy!!

Creamed Spinach

2 pkgs frozen spinach, thawed
3 TBSP butter
1/2 cup finely chopped shallots
1 tsp minced garlic
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup shredded cheese (Gruyere is best)

Melt the butter in medium sauce 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 Gruyere cheese. Bake on 350 for 20 minutes or until cheese is golden and bubbly. Serve immediately. (it’s even awesome on a toasted baguette slice as an appetizer!)
