Recipes by Joy Hodges: Creamed Spinach; Hot Tamale Pie

Joy Hodges' Creamed Spinach

Clean spinach thoroughly (last washing in hot water) and cook in just the water that clings to the leaves. (Start it with cover on, and when spinach wilts remove cover.) Slice 1 small onion finely or chop if preferred, and cook with spinach. Drain thoroughly, and chop spinach fine with 1 hard-boiled egg. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in sufficient cream to make the mixture soft and smooth, and reheat in covered dish or in double boiler. (A bay leaf may be cooked with spinach if you like the flavor, and removed before chopping.)
