3 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 cloves garlic, minced 

1 small onion, finely chopped 

1 1/4 cups heavy cream 

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg 

1/8 teaspoon cayenne 

Two 10-ounce packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

1/2 cup grated Parmesan 

2 ounces cream cheese 

2 tablespoons panko breadcrumbs 


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 6 minutes. Add the heavy cream, nutmeg and cayenne and bring to a simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Mix in the spinach, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 cup of the Parmesan. Add the cream cheese and stir until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a 1 1/2- to 2-quart baking dish and sprinkle with the panko and remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan. Bake until bubbling and light golden on top, about 15 minutes.
