When I’m in a hurry I make it on the stovetop in less than 20 minutes. However for big celebration meals, when I need all my burners for other dishes, I start The Best Creamed Spinach Recipe in the slow cooker and let it simmer all day.
It tastes amazing and rounds out comforting meals and holiday feasts. If you are someone who can’t serve a meal without a green vegetable, The Best Creamed Spinach Recipe is a true winner.
Place the butter, chopped onions, and garlic in a large skillet. Set over medium heat and saute to soften, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in the flour and stir well to break up the clumps.
Scoop the onion mixture into the crock of a large slow cooker. Add the frozen spinach, milk, salt, nutmeg, white pepper and cayenne pepper. Cover and turn on low.
Slow cook for 8-10 hours until the mixture simmers and thickens. Stir every few hours. When ready to serve, stir in the parmesan cheese. Serve warm.
Stovetop Instructions: Cook the onions and garlic in butter as directed above, but do so in a large deep saute pan. Add additional ingredients to the saute pan (Step 2) and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, to thicken. Stir in the parmesan cheese and enjoy!
