Creamed Spinach Royale

I love each month when my Food Network magazine comes in! It came today and has many holiday recipes that I am dying to try. I am sooo ready for Christmas, I can't stand it. I have already bought about 60% of my gifts and have a list of what I am getting everyone else. Also, I'm ready to get back to Texas and take a break from Cali for a little bit. Although I have fallen in love with this city, everyone needs a break from here every once in a while. 
Here is a picture of "the kids" from Christmas last year!

One day it came up in a conversation that Jeffrey likes creamed spinach. I found this recipe in one of my cookbooks. It was soooo rich, but sooo good!

Creamed Spinach Royale
1 package of frozen spinach thawed and drained
1/2 diced onion
3 Tb butter
2 Tb of flour
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup shaved parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper

Cook onion in butter until soft.

Stir flour and nutmeg into onion mix until smooth.

Stir while cooking for 2-3 mins.
Mix together cream and parmesan and stir until smooth. I think I added too much cheese....

Add spinach and stir until combined.
I added a few red pepper flakes, it was yummy!
I will be making this again very soon!
