Creamy, good


November 22, 2006|By Sam Sessa | Sam Sessa,[ Sun reporter]

In less than 24 hours, it will be Turkey Day. If you don't have enough time to prepare a Thanksgiving dish of your own between now and then, you'll have to pick one up from a local restaurant.

We tried three orders of creamed spinach, looking for the right balance of cream, cheese and spinach at a reasonable price. While each was good in its own right, one really stood out. Here are the results.


Boston Market

6336 York Road, Baltimore -- 410-372-0220

Hours --10:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m. daily

In and out in --7 minutes

Here, a 6-ounce container of decent creamed spinach came to $2.09. While it had a good balance of cheese, cream and chopped spinach, the vegetable was a dark green and the cheese was slightly less moist than the others - as though it had been cooking for too long. Even so, it had a touch of garlic and a robust flavor.
