Thread Starter 
i like this...its healthy...

Here’s what you need…
2-1/2 lb. fresh spinach leaves, cleaned, divided 1/2 cup water 1/2 tsp. salt 1 small onion, chopped 1 oz. PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, cut into 6 pieces
PREHEAT oven to 300°F. Place half of the spinach in water and salt in large saucepan; cover. Cook on medium heat 5 to 8 min. or until spinach is wilted, stirring often. Remove spinach with tongs; drain in colander. Repeat with remaining spinach. Cool slightly. MIX spinach and onion; divide mixture into 6 portions. Squeeze out excess water. Using your hands, form little “nests”, making small indentation in center. Place nests in baking dish; place 1 cream cheese piece into center of each nest. BAKE 10 min. or until heated through.

ANOTHER Philadelphia 'cheese' advert?

It's not even real cheese!

I'm a little tired of the spamming too.

That said, there's nothing wrong with Philadelphia Creamcheese. If neufchatel is cheese, so is creamcheese. If not, not.

Whatever you want to call it, it works with bagels and lox like nobody's business.

Sometimes I like to put bits of creamcheese as a just-before-service in creamed spinach for a sort of paneer effect. It's a nice addition, but works best as part of a kitchen sink spinach made with bacon, mushroom and sherry. Good with rich beef -- like roasted prime rib or a grilled sirloin.

The "nest" thing doesn't excite,

I'm sorry if I gave you the impression I thought you were spamming on behalf of Kraft. I don't.

I'm also sorry if I gave you the impression I think my recipes are in some way superior to the recipes developed for the Kraft site. The spinach nest didn't get me excited, but that's neither here nor there. Your taste is every bit as good as mine.

That said, I can certainly see why you got that impression. If you come across a recipe you want to share, don't let a grumpy old b***ard like me, dissuade you.

Best advice I can give,

Phili is cheese and a darn good one.Coffee may start some peoplles day, but a good Everything Bagel and Phili starts mine. I also use it as an enrichment ingredient when I am making cheese sauces, Broc and Cheddar soup, and it's great in an Alfredo when I am cooking home. ;)
