Spinach in cream sauce or casserole?

Is there a way to make a very fast creamed spinach dish? I have froze chopped spinach, canned bread crumbs and milk..

coulud I just steam the spinach, add bread crumbs and cover with white sauce and herbs, maybe a bit of parmesion cheese?

Thanks, Eric, Austin tx.

Sure, that sounds like creamed spinach to me - except for the bread crumbs. I don't remember seeing that as part of the dish. If you want to use them, I would make the creamed spinach, then top it with buttered bread crumbs and put it under the broiler to brown and crisp.

Hi Eric. You shouldn't need to steam the spinach first, it's already been cooked. Also, make sure you squeeze as much water out of the spinach as you can.

I would make a roux of equal parts butter and flour, add the milk (not sure how much spinach you're using so it's hard to say how much flour, butter, and milk) stir over med heat until thickened. Pour over spinach, bake till heated through. And yes, parm would be great in this.

Like GG said, I would sprinkle the bread crumbs on the top rather than mixing it in.

Ah, you're right about it being cooked already, Cheryl. I think I thought he meant to steam it in order to thaw it. The microwave would probably work better for that, though.

Do you have any cream cheese Eric? I love creamed spinach with cream cheese, a dab of mayo, and fresh grated nutmeg.
