As a child in Hungary, I remember having Creamed Spinach topped with a sunny side egg for lunch. I guess I liked it because I remember eating it. I know I like it now, and I tend to serve it with Hungarian Pork Schitzel, Mini Meatloaf Patties or even Homemade Pork Grilling Sausages. On the other hand, it would probably be good with a sunny side egg too!

Instructions
  1. Gather all ingredients before starting recipe.
  2. Defrost frozen spinach in microwave and place in colander to drain.
  3. Melt butter on medium heat in a medium sauce pan, add grated garlic making sure that the garlic does not color but becomes soft, about 1 minute.
  4. Add flour and stir for a few minutes; the roux should be light colored and is ready when there are bubbles throughout.
  5. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Add salt and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer and cook until the sauce has a creamy thick consistency, then add the spinach.
  6. Serve as a side with grilled or fried pork chops.
