“I tossed this together last night and my husbands reaction was 'Wow.' How can you not submit a recipe that gets that kind of reaction!?! Use jalapenos to taste; seed if too hot.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Butter a small casserole dish.
  2. Place the spinach in a microwave-safe bowl, and cook in the microwave 5 minutes on High, until heated through. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup liquid.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, and stir in the bread crumbs until coated. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  4. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour. Mix in onion and garlic, and cook 1 minute. Gradually stir in reserved spinach liquid, evaporated milk, cheese, and jalapeno. Season with celery salt and pepper. Mix in the spinach.

i am so, so sorry to put a bad review out there. i made this thinking i couldn't go wrong with two of my fav. things in the world--spinach and jalapenos. there just aren't any words to describe how foul this was and i can't think of any ingredients to make it *right*. i made the recipe exactly as written, took it to a fancy family dinner, and threw all the leftovers away (there was a LOT b/c no one ate it). the flavors did not meld one bit. it seriously tasted like taking a bite of spinach, then biting into a jalapeno. good luck to you if you decide to make this one!

I very successfully converted this recipe into a dip by 1) doubling everything but the spinach (which makes it much creamier; more like a sauce than a side dish) and 2) leaving out the breadcrumbs. It was a *huge* hit at the dinner party: first thing gone, and I had folks asking if I had any more.

This recipe was awesome! I used 1/2 fresh minced onion, 2% milk, and cubed my cheese (no grater). It paired really nice with salmon and carrots. I am never buying premade creamed spinach again! Update: Tried again only subbing motzerella and a scotch bonnet pepper.... Yum
