Creamed Spinach

Creamed Spinach is a pretty classic side dish for a meaty main course. And it’s easy to make at home!

In the past I’ve always bought the frozen stuff, and it is delicious. But when you make it yourself you can add any additional flavors you might like – such as garlic and cheese!

Be sure to have a great slice of bread, a biscuit, or a crescent roll to sop it all up!

Creamed Spinach


  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 1/4 C milk
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 10 oz fresh spinach
  • 1 C shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Melt butter over medium heat in a large pot. Whisk in flour until it forms a paste.
  2. Add in milk, constantly whisking. Season with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Bring to a simmer, still whisking.
  3. Add spinach to the pot of milk. Stir with a wooden spoon until it wilts down. Stir in cheese until it melts.

    1. This was way too garlicky for you. You could take it out, I don’t see why it’d matter. If you use a sharp cheese you’ll get a stronger cheddar anyway.
