My husband and I, his brothers, their wives, and sister all got together for a week and rented a house on the spectacular Oregon Coast a couple of years ago. As part of “our night to fix dinner” for everyone, this Creamed Spinach one of the vegetables I prepared.  The comment I remember Kent making was “I think this may be the best use of spinach I have ever tasted”.  Who could ask for anything more?  They knew I was diabetic and probably expected “whatever”  but we wowed ’em good.

This is also the base I use for Oysters Rockefeller.

This very good with Au Gratin Casserole Topping but it is also super with crumbled bacon.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Notes
  1. Another way (the way I do it) is to heat spinach mixture in the microwave, top it with pork skins, & pop it into a 375 degree (toaster) oven until browned. It saves a lot of time & electricity. If topping does not get crispy brown, broil until it does.
  2. You could also use shallots in place of the onions.
  3. As a variation for breakfast heat, and put a fried egg on top. If you have leftovers so what if the crumbs are there-top with an egg and chow down baby.
  4. Another use: Put oysters under crumbs and top with Hollandaise sauce for Oysters Rockefeller.
  5. Sprinkle with bacon.
  6. Mix bacon into spinach mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
