Step 1

Microwave the spinach in a large bowl until fully defrosted. Wring out spinach in a clean dish towel to remove most of the moisture.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in skillet over medium heat, add onions, and cook until lightly browned. Then, add flour and remaining 1 tablespoon butter and cook about 1 minute. Whisk in the milk, whisking constantly until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thick, about 8 minutes.
Stir in the spinach, parmesan, hot sauce, nutmeg, and Kosher salt and cook until warm.
Arrange cups on 2 cookie sheets and fill each with heaping teaspoon of the spinach mixture. Bake until shells are hot, 5 minutes.
Sprinkle with additional parmesan and nutmeg and serve.
