Creamed Spinach~ Perfect Holiday Appetizer

Thanksgiving is just around the corner for us!! You are probably like me trying to decide what to make for your guests?? I am very last minute, I must say! Being an author, chef, and managing Kouzounas Kitchen has me on my feet non stop. Which is why, I finally planned out my Thanksgiving menu, yay!

This delicious creamed spinach, is a healthier recipe I must say. Instead of using sour cream, I replaced with Greek yogurt. I don’t think I will be going back to sour cream anytime soon. Greek yogurt adds such a wonderful creamy texture to this recipe. Try it out yourself, and let me know your thoughts.
