Does anyone have a good recipe for creamed spinach like that served in restaurants, particularly Applebee's. Theirs is the only spinach my daughter will eat. Thanks in advance for your help.

If you are in a hurry and want a small amount buy Stouffers (it is the exact same)
Easy artrichoke/spinach dip
1 cup mayonaise
1 cup parmesan cheese
1 large jar artichokes--cut up (the one about 4 inches high)
1 -10oz pkg frozen spinach-thaw and drained.
Mix together and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes--until bubbly hot.
It is very good without the spinach also.
2 10oz pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 tsp onion flakes
I like the Stouffers artichoke and spinach dip, YUMMY

Cut up artichokes, combine everything except the mozzarella, put it all in a baking dish (I use a 8x8); sprinkle shredded mozzarella on top, and bake at 350 for a 1/2 hour. Voila! You have dip. (02/01/2006)
I had a recipes for Applebee's spinach artichoke dip, but misplaced it. It was the closest I found to the same taste. I've misplaced the recipe, so I'm going by memory. I left off the artichoke, but I believe you can just add that in.
2 packages of frozen spinach, drained and set aside -
Saute in a pan 2 tablespoons of flour, onions, and butter.
Stir in 1 16oz package of soften cream cheese.
Add a dash or 2 of paprika.
Add 1/2 can of chicken broth, let simmer.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes
I hope this is what you are looking for.

As I stated earlier, I am going by memory.
Bake for 20-30 min. Serve with nacho chips.
I don't put the artichoke in mine, but I believe you can just add it. I also add much more cheese. There is a cheese and I can't think of the name right now, but it has sun dried tomatoes in it. I believe its made by Kraft.
This is the closest I found to Applebees. ENJOY!
Here's a recipe that I combined (and just eyeball it).
salt and pepper (optional)
just a little minced garlic for taste
shredded cheese (to go on top)
10 oz box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
14 oz can artichoke hearts, drained and roughly chopped
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
10 oz prepared Alfredo sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
4 oz softened cream cheese
oven 350 degrees
Bake for 25-30 min. or until cheeses are bubbling and melted.
