    Step 1
    Bring a pot of water to boil and add the spinach. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water until cool. Drain.

    Put in a dry bowl and add eggs, grated cheese, milk, and flour.
    Step 3
    Season with nutmeg, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

    Add enough oil to coat the bottom of a large skillet set over medium heat. Carefully spoon the batter into the skillet. Cook the croquettes on both sides until browned.
    Step 5
    Remove the croquettes from the skillet and place them on paper towels to remove excess oil. Continue, adding more oil as needed, until all croquettes are cooked.
