  • 400 grams frozen spinach
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 1 red onion or 3 shallots
  • 150 grams boursin
  • 150 mls double cream
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 30 grams breadcrumbs
  • 40 grams mature cheddar


  1. Finely chop the onion and tomato. Sautee for a few minutes until soft.

  2. Add the frozen spinach with a splash of water and cook down. Use your spoon or spatula to help the spinach break down/thaw. This will take about 5 minutes.

  3. Add the boursin cheese in pieces and add the cream. Let that melt and meld together. Cover and leave that to bubble until creamy and thick, about 5 minutes.

  4. Empty into your baking dish. Sprinkle over the cheese and breadcrumbs. Place under a hot grill for 5-10 minutes until bubbling and golden.

  5. Apply To Face With Big Gusset Problems.

Recipe Notes

  • Use frozen spinach but if you are using fresh use 3 x 200 grams bags. You will need to let each bag cook down before adding the next.
  • Great with roasted meats and steaks. 
  • Get ahead by completely making it up to the pre grilling stage. Cover and set aside in the fridge. Place in a pre heated oven 180 C/350 F/Gas Mark 4 for 15 minutes before placing it back under the grill for the recommended time.
  • Store any leftovers covered in the fridge.
  • Reheat leftovers covered in a 180 C/350 F/Gas Mark 4 for 15 minutes or so. I would reheat covered in the microwave for individual portions.
  • You can freeze creamed spinach for up to 3 months. Allow to cool before freezing in a container.
