How do you make creamed spinach? Also, can other greens be creamed?

If you can make a white sauce - you can cream anything.

Melt butter in saucepan, add equal amount of flour (2 tbls. butter=2tbls. flour), stir until there are no lumps and it becomes a smooth paste. Under med. heat add milk, about 1/4 cup at a time continuously stirring so it doesn't get a chance to lump up. Continue adding milk while cooking until sauce is desired thickness and flour is cooked. Season with salt and pepper to taste. When your white sauce tastes delicious you can add anything to it such as: spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, peas. The best creamed thing I know of is creamed eggs. Just add hard boiled eggs to the sauce and serve over toast. Its unbelievable.How do you make creamed spinach? Also, can other greens be creamed?
