BBQ My Way: Five-star sides


½ to 1 tsp of freshly cracked black pepper (depends on how peppery you want it)
1 tsp kosher salt
1 block of cream cheese
2 10 oz. bags of frozen spinach
½ tsp of nutmeg
Saute' the onion and garlic in olive oil over medium to medium-high heat until tan in color. The tan/golden color means the sweetness is coming out. Add the pepper, salt and cream cheese. Stir until fully incorporated and smooth.
In the meantime, empty the bags of spinach into a microwavable bowl. Place a lid on the bowl and cook on high in the microwave for six to seven minutes. Add the cooked spinach to the cream cheese mixture and mix thoroughly. Add the nutmeg and mix in as well. Basically, you are done. But, you could take it to another level by sprinkling shredded Parmesan cheese on top and placing in the broiler for a minute or two.
You can view videos we made for both of these recipes by going to
Search for “spinach” and “potato.”
