2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 medium white onion, finely chopped

1 cup (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

2 (10-ounce) boxes frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

Kosher salt and ground white pepper


  1. Heat the butter in a 12-inch saute pan over moderate heat. Add the onions and cook until soft, about 8 minutes. Whisk in the cream cheese and let melt. Fold in the spinach until evenly combined. Add up to 3 tablespoons water if the mixture seems too dry. Sprinkle the nutmeg on top and season with salt and pepper.
  2. BYOC: Lemon zest and juice would bring a little bit of sunshine to this dish. Just add with the salt and pepper.
