Reviews for Classic Creamed Spinach
"Super decadent...maybe because I for whatever reason used 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup heavy cream, a bit of cream cheese and a tad of cracked black pepper just because I love it...not that it isn't fabulous just the way it is!"
"So simple and delicious, I'll be making this often."
"This tasted delicious and was very easy to prepare. I modified it just a little. Added a pinch of cinnamon, decreased flour to 1 Tbsp, decreased butter to 3 Tbsp. added 2 oz cream cheese, decreased milk to 1-1/4"
"Have been looking for spinach recipes & came across this one. This recipe was great & had a great flavor to it! I decreased the amount of butter & used fresh spinach."
"Easy, comfort food. added a bit more nutmeg to taste and garlic at the same time I added the onions. I used frozen spinach for convenience."
