1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons onion, minced
20 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup heavy cream
Sauté the onion in the butter until lightly browned. Squeeze the spinach very well to remove any liquid. Mix all of the ingredients except the cream in a shallow 1 1/2 quart casserole. Pour the cream over the top and lightly mix in. Heat, uncovered, in microwave on 50% power 10-15 minutes until hot.

This is supposed to taste like the creamed spinach at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, but since I've never been there, I can't say if it's like the real thing. It is pretty good, but I think it would be nicer baked in the oven until lightly browned on top.
