While I love creamed spinach it has taken some trial and error – and eating a lot of creamed spinach – to come up with a recipe I loved!

I love this version because it works for both stovetop or oven method! Make this ahead and heat in a casserole dish in the oven later or serve it directly from the stove top!

This version has just a couple of steps but are so worth it!

A combinations of butter and flour to make a rue. Then adding in the half and half and cream cheese for delicious base for your spinach.

Second is sautéing the onions! This makes them soft and buttery to blend in.

This recipe works for me because I love the creaminess of the cream cheese…..well duh, and the saltiness of the parm. And you know, the fact there is a vegetable hidden in all that cheese!
