Creamed Spinach with Mozzarella

Restaurant-Style Creamed Spinach - Quick and easy !

I have another delicious side dish recipe for you today. Restaurant-Style Creamed Spinach with Mozzarella !

Creamed Spinach has always been one of my favorite sides, and it is actually served in most restaurants as well.

After buying some of those ready made frozen Creamed Spinach boxes which you re-heat and serve for many years, I decided to try my own recipe.

This was all guess work, but I wanted it to have that same taste as one of our chain restaurants. Believe it or not, the first try was spot on ! (Either I was just lucky the first time or creamed spinach is just an easy dish!)

The only thing I added/changed was to add some shaved Mozzarella. Nowadays, we have this side dish with a lot of different main meat dishes, from roast beef to pork chops, and I absolutely love how quick and easy this Creamed Spinach is to make. I prep the vegetables beforehand, but only cook the dish minutes before we are ready to serve dinner.

Creamed Spinach With Mozzarella

  1. Why wouldn't we believe it, you're a gun in the kitchen, of course you got it first go! I think that would be awesome with pasta!

  2. This looks pretty good to me, but Sam will absolutely not eat creamed spinach. But...I'm liking Mels idea of serving it over pasta! Maybe I can sneak it in!

  3. Spinach is one of our favorites veggies - even the kiddos like it! Pinned this to try!

  4. I love the real fresh cream in your recipe. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and have a great weekend!
    Come Back Soon,
