Creamed Spinach Gratin

Leo Gong
 1/2 teaspoon butter
 5 packages (10 oz. each) frozen chopped spinach, defrosted
 2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs

Butter a shallow 1 1/2- to 2-quart baking dish. Squeeze out as much water as possible from the spinach (use your hands or a clean kitchen towel). Set aside.

Heat spinach and cream in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and stir in cheese to melt. Stir in salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Step 3

Transfer spinach mixture to buttered baking dish and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Just before serving, place dish in the oven 5 to 6 in. below a broiler set to high; broil until top is golden and crunchy, about 3 minutes.
