Hunky creamed spinach

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
This is a delicious recipe that goes well with most anything.

2 Lbs. spinach
1 cup water
1 clove garlic minced
bit of cracked BP
2 full Tbsp bacon drippings
<Consider a crumbled strip of bacon as well>
2 heaping Tbsp. flour
Half cup milk or I like to use "haff an' haff"
1 cup sour cream
Kosher salt to taste
2 hard boiled eggs sliced for topping

Wash, drain, chop and simmer spinach in water

In another pot, add bacon drippings and flour, mix and brown

set roux off the heat and mix into it the spinach and garlic, then fold in sour cream- mix till smooth.

Add salt to tast, pepper and milk and heat gently to a bubble for a few min over low flame- easy to burn...be gentle! Add a bit more milk if it turns too thick.

Top with egg slices and a bit of paprika and C.B.P. on top and serve ..YUM!

Talk to me Rich

Im wonderin if you ever made this usin frozen spinach. All I can find in the store is baby spinach (love the stuff) and 2# will about break the bank. Not sure how much frozen to use but I guess that wont be too tough to figure out.

Also how many does this serve, approx.

Basically cooked down spinach is a LOT more spinach than the net weight is. I say that cooked spinach starts out 4 times as much.

Hope that helps.

Oh, you'll also want to drain the frozen spinach of any water.
