Creamy Spinach Bake

Creamy Spinach Bake


  • 3 (10-ounce) packages frozen spinach
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 2 to 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Thaw spinach according to package directions. Wring out with paper towels or a clean dishcloth to get as much water out of the spinach as possible.
  3. While spinach is thawing, melt butter in a saucepan on medium heat. Add shallots and cook until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 20 seconds. Add the thawed spinach, cream cheese, salt, red pepper flakes and black pepper and mix until well combined.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a medium baking dish and top with bread crumbs and Parmesan. Bake until topping is golden and spinach is warmed through, about 10 to 15 minutes.
