Truthfully, I can not state that I’ve ever had creamed spinach made by an actual Old Lady.
But it’s one of the recipes that I lump into that category of my brain along with creamed onions, liver and onions, and gelatin salads. All of which are delicious. (Except maybe liver and onions; although I remember loving my grandma’s liver’n’onions as a child, I haven’t had them in 20-odd years and can’t be sure I’d still feel the same devotion. So it’s a “maybe”.)
Indeed, the fact that a recipe is something that might appeal to an Old Lady generally means it’s super-yummy in my book. Creamed spinach is no exception. Unnecessary and gluttonous as it may be, covering spinach with creamy sauce is a delight when done right. (See what I did there? I made a rhyme!)
Try this creamed spinach recipe with your holiday meals as a nice change from the standard Old Lady Recipe: green bean casserole.
