Easy Creamy Spinach

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 7 mins
Yield Makes 6 servings
We streamlined this rich dish inspired by reader Georgette Dugas by using frozen chopped onions and spinach.

Ingredients

  • 2 (9-oz.) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1/4 cup frozen chopped onions, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 (6-oz.) package spreadable Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

How to Make It

  1. Drain thawed chopped spinach and thawed chopped onions well, pressing between paper towels.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add spinach, onions, and minced garlic, and cook, stirring often, 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in spreadable Swiss cheese and next 3 ingredients until smooth (about 4 minutes). Serve immediately.

  3. Note: For testing purposes only, we used The Laughing Cow Original Creamy Swiss Flavor Spreadable Cheese Wedges.

  4. Easy Creamy Collards: Substitute 1 (16-oz.) bag frozen chopped collard greens, thawed, for frozen spinach, and 1/2 cup milk for sour cream. Increase initial cook time to 8 minutes or until collards are cooked to desired degree of tenderness. Prepare recipe as directed, stirring in 2 tsp. sugar with cheese.
