This has been a very popular side dish on my blog. It is simple to make and I’m very please with the resulting flavor profile. It went very nicely with our boneless baked rosemary-onion pork steaks tonight. I did put 3 large sliced mushrooms in this, but they added absolutely nothing to the flavor impact, so I won’t include them again and I’m not including those in my recipe here. This dish is Induction acceptable. Popeye himself would brag on the nutritional stats for a serving of this spinach dish!
2 T. olive oil
2 oz. onion, chopped
10 oz. box frozen spinach, thawed and drained
2 oz. cream cheese
2 oz. heavy cream
1/3 c. homemade mayonnaise
2 large eggs
3/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
VARIATION: Add 2 c. chopped raw, boneless chicken meat to the skillet with the onion and turn this side dish into a delicious meal.
DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350º. Heat olive oil in non-stick skillet over med-high heat. Add onion and salt and saute the onion until tender. Add the drained spinach and cook a few minutes, stirring several times. Lower heat to medium. Cut the cream cheese into little chunks and melt and stir it into the warm spinach. Add mayonnaise and stir well. Turn off heat. Beat the eggs in a bowl with the cream and pour it evenly over the top of the spinach. Top with Parmesan and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350º.
