This Boston Market creamed spinach recipe has all the fundamental components of a perfect side dish; great consistency, perfect texture and a wonderfully balanced flavor that doesn’t overpower the main dish. Creamed spinach has never tasted this good.
Start by preparing your white sauce. Melt the butter over medium heat in a medium-sized saucepan. Remove the pan from the heat and add your flour. Using a whisk, combine the melted butter and flour until it forms a roux.
Then, still off the heat, add 2 tablespoons of milk at a time while whisking well to incorporate the milk. If you add the milk too fast, your white sauce will have lumps. Rather take your time to create a beautiful smooth sauce.
