- One chopped onion
- Tablespoon chopped garlic
- ½ cup cream cheese
- ½ cup half and half
- ½ cup sharp white cheddar or a good melting cheese like fontina

Start by sweating the onions and garlic in some olive oil until they are soft and translucent, now add your spinach and a little kosher salt and pepper.
The spinach will start to wilt quickly, now add your half and half and cream cheese and stir until it is melted and the mixture is bubbling.
Now add the cheddar cheese and mix until it is incorporated, check for seasoning and add some grated nutmeg if you like.
Continue to cook until it reduces so a nice thick consistency it should be tight not loose or runny.
Now put in an oven proof serving bowl and grate some parmesan cheese on top and finish with some panko breadcrumbs.
Bake in a 400 degree oven until it is golden on top and bubbling.
Serve with tortilla chips or for something different some matzo crackers.
