Creamed Spinach and Mushrooms (Recipe)


✅ 4 6-oz. bags baby spinach leaves, stems removed

✅ 2 Tbsp. butter, divided

✅ 8 oz. Baby Bella mushrooms, chopped

✅ 1/4 cup yellow onion, finely chopped

✅ 2 garlic cloves, minced

✅ 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

✅ 2 cups milk

✅ 1 tsp. kosher salt

✅ 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

✅ 1/8 tsp. nutmeg

✅ 1 cup gruyere cheese, grated

✅ 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs


1️⃣ Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

2️⃣ In a large saucepan, bring 2 inches of water to a boil. Add the spinach, a handful at a time, waiting for it to wilt before adding more. When all the spinach is wilted, drain in a colander. Using a large spoon, press out as much as the water as possible.

3️⃣ In the saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, onion and garlic and cook until softened and until some of the mushroom liquid cooks away, stirring often. Reduce the temperature to medium-low and stir in the flour. Cook for an additional minute stirring constantly.

4️⃣ Slowly whisk in the milk and simmer until thickened, whisking often. Stir in the salt, pepper, nutmeg, cheese and spinach. Spoon into baking dish. Sprinkle with panko crumbs. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown.
