- 2 lb of fresh spinach
- 1 ½ cups of hot milk
- 1 cup of cheddar cheese, grated
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 2 tablespoons of ﬂour
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- Pinch of pepper
- Pinch of nutmeg
Trim and wash 2 lb of fresh spinach. Place in a suitably-sized pot with water still on the leaves. Cover; then cook only until wilted. Allow to cool, then squeeze out the excess water.
In a saucepan, melt the butter; then add the ﬂour. Whisk and gently cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the milk; then bring to a boil. Add the salt and a pinch of pepper and nutmeg. Cook for about 5-6 minutes.
Combine the sauce with the spinach and ½ cup of grated cheese. Spoon into a baking dish, then top with the other ½ cup of grated cheddar.
Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 20 minutes. Serve as desired.
