Creamed Spinach

I always love creamed spinach at restaurants, but never thought about making them myself.  I saw this easy recipe from the Pioneer Woman and had to try it.  There are a lot of other fancier ways to make it, but this was easy and darn tasty.  A great way to eat your spinach I say (how could it not be with butter and heavy cream!) Try it today.. maybe next to a nice juicy steak hot off the grill (the weather has been gorgeous in Chicago so that means grilling time is here again!).

Creamed Spinach
From: The Pioneer Woman

1 bag Spinach - cleaned (remove stems if you wish)
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Butter
1-2 cloves Garlic - minced
1/2 onion - diced
Heavy Cream
salt and pepper

1.  Dice onion and chop garlic

2. Melt butter and olive oil together in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add onions and garlic and saute until translucent.

3.  Add spinach and lightly press down with a spoon.  Toss it very gently as it wilts.

4. Once the spinach is wilted add heavy cream.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Serve
