    Creamed Spinach Gratin

                   Creamed Spinach Gratin Recipe

Spinach is the star of this dish, but the kid judges didn't mind the yummy cheese either. If you're planning ahead, make this gratin the night before and refrigerate until you're ready to pop it in the oven.

Yield: Makes 8 servings


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for the dish
  • clove garlic, halved
  • shallots, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 10-ounce boxes frozen spinach, thawed
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature 
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup grated Gruyère or Swiss cheese
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Rub the sides and bottom of a buttered 8-inch baking dish with the garlic; discard garlic.

    In a skillet, over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the shallots and cook until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.

    Squeeze the spinach to remove any excess liquid. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, cream cheese, heavy cream, milk, Gruyère or Swiss cheese, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and shallots. Transfer to dish. Bake, uncovered, until bubbling and lightly golden, about 25 minutes.

    Make Ahead: Assemble the gratin in advance, and refrigerate it overnight. Allow an extra 30 minutes of baking time.
