Christmas Food: Creamed Spinach with Garlic

December 7, 2012

We never had creamed spinach growing up, presumably because my mother realized spinach is supposed to be a healthy food, not deliciously smothered in butter and eggs. Unfortunately, I’ve discovered it is quite easy to prepare, so it may make more and more appearances on my family’s Christmas table.

Creamed Spinach with Garlic
1.5 lbs fresh spinach, roughly chopped, steamed, and drained of any water
5-6 cloves roasted garlic
2
 cups whole milk
3 tbsp butter
1/4 cup flour
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
salt

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Whisk in flour. Whisk in milk until mixture boils and thickens. Reduce heat, add spinach and garlic, stir slowly over low heat. Just before serving, remove from heat, salt to taste and add egg and yolk, stirring to completely combine.
