I prepare spinach like this routinely, but never with onion, so I knew when I saw this recipe I was going to love it. Using the ingredients called for, I did prepare this a little differently. I fried diced bacon till almost crisp, drained off some of the grease, then added the onions followed by the garlic. No need for the extra step of removing the bacon from the pan. This went perfectly served with "Beef Kabobs with Parmesan Orzo," also from this site.

Yum! Changes I made--I used the bacon drippings instead of draining them off and cut back on the amount of oil used to compensate. I also drained the spinach after cooking as another reviewer suggested and sprinkled the spinach liberally with salt right after adding it. My family loved it--thanks!

This was so simple and tasty. BE CAREFUL!!! If you add the garlic while your pan s too hot you will scorch the garlic making it bitter.
