"Four stars as written, Five stars with a few changes, as others also suggested. 1. Saute a small onion in butter until very soft. 2. Saute a couple of cloves of garlic after the onion. Add the oni..." See moreon and garlic to the cream sauce. 3. Add 1/4 cup cream and 1 tsp flour to the recommended cream, and wisk this together. This will make the cream sauce thicker. 4. Reduce the nutmeg just a bit- you can always add more."
"The nutmeg is the thing!! This is an excellent recipe. It is comparable to the spinach you get at Bostom Market and Buckheads Very quick and easy to make!!..." See more"
"I gave this recipe 4 Stars because I wouldn't use it "as is" without some additions. However, it is a good basic recipe & reminds me of my Granny's creamed spinach. I add(ed) finely chopped onions, Pa..." See morermesan cheese, salted butter & garlic salt. I also used bagged (vs. boxed), frozen spinach heated up in the microwave. (It's the "driest" way I know to cook spinach.) I served this (my) rendition at Christmas and it was good enough that the kids ate it w/out complaint. :-) I'll have to try it with bacon, as some Reviewers suggested. That would be a nice variation, I think. Oh, yeah: I do like the nutmeg in there."
