Baked Creamed Spinach

Print Friendly and PDF

My kids really love spinach, which makes this mom oh so happy.  We add it in dishes like pasta or rice, sauté it and shhh... we've even fried it! It was a mess, but spinach chips are really good y'all...  Anyways, this is a great take on creamed spinach! The breadcrumbs and creole cream cheese really add a little something to it. 


  • 2 bags of frozen chopped spinach 

  • 8oz creole cream cheese (if you can not find this locally, mascarpone works well)

  • 8oz cream cheese 

  • 1/4 tsp slap ya mama cajun seasoning 

  • salt and pepper to taste 

  • 1 stick butter 

  • 3/4 cups Italian bread crumbs 


  • Cook the spinach according to the package (usually the microwave) 

  • Squeeze it dry 

  • Melt 1/2 stick butter in pan and add the spinach 

  • Sauté it and add the slap ya mama, salt and pepper 

  • Taste test it to make sure you have enough salt 

  • Add the creole cream cheese 

  • Cube up and add the cream cheese 

  • Once it is all melted pour it into a baking dish 


  • Melt the other 1/2 stick butter and add the bread crumbs 

  • Mix well until it is all coated- you may need to add more butter 

  • Pour on top of the spinach in the baking dish- covering it all 

  • Bake for about 20 minutes on 350, or until breadcrumbs are golden
