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

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

  1. Strain the thawed spinach through a colander, and then wrap in a kitchen towel and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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.
