Ingredients

  • Two 10-ounce boxes frozen spinach, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely diced (about 1 cup)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 cups grated aged Gouda cheese

Directions

Strain the thawed spinach through a colander, and then wrap in a kitchen towel and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. 

Melt the butter in a large straight-sided skillet over medium heat. Cook the onions until softened, 6 to 8 minutes, and then season with salt and pepper. 

Add the cream and nutmeg and cook until the cream is reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the cheese until melted, and then mix in the spinach to combine. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until the spinach is tender, 8 to 10 minutes, and then season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl and serve immediately.
