Sunday Night is Steak Night

Tonight my husband and I dined on filet, baked potatoes, and (wait for it-) creamed spinach!  I've searched for a creamed spinach recipe and I finally landed on the Barefoot Contessa's Spinach Gratin as my go to starting point.  (Note to self: what the hell does the word "gratin" mean?) I made a few modifications to Ina's recipe, because when cooking (not baking) you must always follow your taste buds.  First, I fried up some diced bacon and then I cooked my onion with the bacon bits and bacon grease instead of butter.
I added much more freshly ground pepper.  I increased the nutmeg, and I may have added a little bit more cheese...
The end product was delicious - even my husband (who's never met an onion he liked) ate this dish (onions and all).

  1. That looks delicious. What kind of cheese? And it looks like you baked it? If so, how long? I need this recipe . . . Like Del's Brussel Sprouts, I won't be able to make it as tasty as you two originals do . . . but even close is deleeesh!
