If you’re wondering how to make creamed spinach, you’re in the right place!
Can you freeze creamed spinach? Yes I always freeze half of the batch I make and it’s just fine reheating.
Can you make creamed spinach ahead of time? Yes! I make it before and keep it in the fridge, then just pull it out and re-heat on the stove.
