Cheesy ‘Creamed’ Spinach with Ham

Posted by Solitary Dancer on February 26, 2008

Found this neat idea over at Low Carb Confidential.  This sounds so cool and really easy.  I love recipes that are not complicated and don’t take a lot of time.  This fits the bill just right.  Here’s the original post from Low Carb Confidential.

Cheesy ‘Creamed’ Spinach with Ham

This experiment came out quite good so here it is:

  • 1 20 oz. bag frozen chopped spinach
  • 3/4 lb. deli ham – I used the store-cooked type that has a milder flavor and is less processed.
  • 1 stick butter
  • 5 slices American cheese
  • 1/3 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup almond ‘flour’ (almonds I ground up in the food processor)

Chop the sliced ham into 1/2″ square bits or smaller.


Fry the ham with the butter in a large skillet uncovered until nicely cooked – maybe a few bits here and there are browned.


Next, pour in the frozen spinach. I bang on the bag with my fists before opening to break up frozen chunks.


Now mix them together and cover. set the heat to low and give it a few minutes for the spinach to melt and add liquid to the pan.


Once the spinach is thawed and begins to cook, place the cheese slices on the top and as the cheese melts, blend it into the mixture.


Next, toss in the almond flour. I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary, but it didn’t seem to hurt, either.


The melted cheese and the liquid from the spinach gave the mixture a creamy sauce, which is why I call it ‘cream’ spinach.


The cheddar cheese almost overpowered the dish, so don’t overdo it.

    Just an update: I’ve been eating this for a few days now and I still think it’s pretty good. I’ll have it for lunch today and look forward to it.

    In my book – this one’s a keeper.



  2. This is good news!!! Thanks for the update and I will be giving this a try.

    Keep up the great job on Low Carb Confidential. I really enjoy your posts.
