With the turkey, the gravy, the stuffing and mashed potatoes, there's not a lot of color on the Thanksgiving table. This creamed spinach brings some bright green color and excellent nutrition.

Why Try? A great way to get a green vegetable into your Thanksgiving meal, and it can be made ahead.

Foodie Byte: Sautéing the onions adds a rich layered big flavor.

  1. Drain thawed spinach in a colander and squeeze dry.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet, sauté onions over medium-high heat until translucent.
  3. Remove from heat, add spinach and remaining ingredients and stir to blend.
  4. Pour into a 9-inch casserole dish and heat 20 to 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
