House of Prime Rib’s Creamed Spinach Recipe
- 5 slices bacon, diced
- 2 cups baby spinach, fresh
- 1 cup full-fat milk
- 1 medium white onion
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 tsp nutmeg powder
- 2 tbsp butter, unsalted
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp all-purpose white flour
- 1 lemon
- Firstly, cook the spinach in salted, boiling water for 30 seconds
- Next, transfer it into ice water so that the spinach cools down (Alternatively, you can buy frozen spinach)
- Blanch the spinach, squeeze, and chop
- In a large skillet, saute the sliced bacon for about 3 minutes
- Keep the flame on medium hot
- Add sliced onion and cook until it turns translucent
- After 3-4 minutes, add spinach, garlic, salt, nutmeg powder and pepper
- Next, melt the butter in a saucepan
- Add flour and keep stirring with a wooden spoon for about 3 minutes
- Cook until the mixture turns into a light brown color
- Now, add the milk and whisk until the mixture starts boiling
- Reduce the flame and cook for another one minute until the mixture thickens
- Your cream sauce is ready!
- Finally, add the cream sauce and pulsed spinach to the skillet
- Blend the whole mixture to get that House of Prime Rib’s smooth, velvety texture
- Squeeze in some lemon juice and enjoy!
Tips for this recipe
- It’s best to heat the milk before adding it to the cream sauce. This reduces the chances of forming clumps
- Instead of white flour, you can opt for Irish wholemeal flour
- If you’ve just taken out your bacon from the freezer, just use meat scissors to cut the bacon slices. This will speed up the cooking time
- Ideally, get some extra spinach because it tends to reduce its volume after cooking

The mere thought of spinach recalls Popeye’s obsession with having spinach as an energy booster. While it certainly offers numerous health benefits, having raw spinach might not really be our cup of tea, especially for millennials.
