One of my all time favorite side dishes, not something that you see too often in restaurants. Luckily it’s easy enough to make at home for a lot less money and it will probably taste better too.
1 lb. spinach, washed, trimmed with stems removed
2 tbsp. butter
Place spinach in rapidly boiling water. Simmer for 5 minutes or until tender. Drain well and chop fine. In a large skillet, melt butter and sauté chopped onion for 2 minutes. Stir in flour, being careful not to burn it. Slowly stir in the heated cream and sugar. Cook and stir until smooth and thick. Add the spinach and stir for another 3 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper, should make 2 or 3 nice servings. I tend to double the recipe because I can eat a couple servings by myself.
