What is your go-to side dish when preparing dinner? Everyone has a favorite, right? I almost always have some sort of carb, whether it be a potato, corn, rice, garlic bread or some sort of pasta. But in addition to the carb I also like to have a vegetable.

Sure, having some sort of steamed vegetable like broccoli is a quick and easy option, but lately I have really been into spinach. More specifically, this Creamed Spinach. It is surprisingly easy to make and has lots of creamy, cheesy flavor, too.

A key to this flavorful creamed spinach is the freshly grated nutmeg. The nutmeg adds a wonderful, nutty flavor to an otherwise bland dish. So don’t skimp on the pre-ground nutmeg, it really is worth it to micrograte your own!

This version of creamed spinach also uses onion. For people who don’t like onion, it can be omitted, but it does flavor the dish. Spinach doesn’t really have much flavor, so the onion helps to enhance the flavor of the dish.

I also love this dish because it is so versatile. It is traditionally served in steakhouses, but you can really pair it with so many other entrees. Not only is it a great side dish for weeknight dinners, but it is also perfect for holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Everyone has their own preference about the consistency of creamed spinach. Some people like their creamed spinach super sloppy and wet, while others like it thicker and dry. You can easily make this creamed spinach to your liking by either adding more or less heavy cream.

Such a great recipe Jessica! I love how versatile it is – you can use it with pasta and rice to make a delicious main meal too! Thank you for sharing.

Never occurred to me to put nutmeg in creamed spinach but it sounds delicious! Love that this is still green and looks like it has some bite! Sometimes creamed spinach can be so mushy. Gotta try this!

Vicky

Creamed spinach is a holiday staple! I have never tried it with steak before and will have to do that next. No reason to wait for the holidays to enjoy this creamed spinach.
