Feta Creamed Spinach

Try this creamy and satisfying side dish with grilled steak or chicken.

Recipe by Lauren McElwain

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion

  • 3-4 cloves minced garlic

  • 2 packages frozen spinach (thawed, rinsed and drained)

  • 8 ounces cream cheese

  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella

  • 8 ounces crumbled feta

  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg

  • ½ to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Melt the butter in a pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes.

Add the spinach, and toss to coat with the melted butter mixture. Add the cream cheese, and cook, stirring, until fully melted and incorporated, about 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients, and cook, stirring, for 5-7 more minutes or until all cheeses are melted and incorporated.

Transfer to an attractive serving dish or leave in the cast iron skillet, and serve hot.
