"Really good! Made last night for dinner and leftovers for lunch today. I do not care for frozen spinach, so I used 2 cups of finely shredded fresh spinach and it was really good."

"I used a bit more butter and not quite as much flour to get a better texture and flavor. The nutmeg is what really sets it off! Yummy!"
