Easy Creamed Spinach

I have always liked spinach… maybe it’s because I loved ‘Popeye the Sailor Man’. I always thought my Pop-pop resembled him and maybe he was just undercover… lol.


Easy Creamed Spinach

Easy Creamed Spinach


  • 2 1/2 pounds spinach, washed
  • 2 T. butter or margarine
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 block cream cheese, softened and cubed
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Steam spinach in boiling salted water until just wilted, about 1 minute.

Drain and rinse with cold water until cool.

Once cool, squeeze the spinach to remove as much water as possible.

Chop and set to the side.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.

Add onion and garlic to the butter and cook 3 to 5 minutes until softened.

Add cream cheese and milk. Stir constantly until the cheese is melted.

Stir in spinach and simmer mixture for 8-10 minutes until slightly thickened.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.
