Instructions
  1. Prepare your lambs quarter. If using spinach instead- thaw your spinach and wring the excess liquid from the spinach.
  2. Melt your butter and bacon grease in a skillet. Then add your minced garlic and sauté. Be sure to keep the heat medium-low. You do not want to burn your garlic.

  5. Mix the lambs quarter into the cheese sauce and cook for about 5 minutes until everything is heated all the way through. Serve immediately and enjoy!

One of my favorite things that we grow is Lambs Quarter. It has a very similar taste to spinach and is rich in many vitamins. If you are not fortunate to have this wonderful weed growing in your yard, just use frozen chopped spinach. I am going to take you through the steps on how to prepare the lambs quarter before I dig into the directions of the Creamed Lambs Quarter.

I then strain the lambs quarter. You can reserve the water and put it in your chicken coop or compost bin.

You will then take the leaves and place them in a clean dish towel and ring the extra liquid out of the leaves. Then chop the lambs quarter and you are ready to go!
