“Savory creamed spinach flavored with onions and bacon. My guests love this. It's not difficult but needs a couple of pans and constant stirring. We think it's worth the work!” - by LisaB
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Wrap bacon in a paper towel, and set on a plate. Cook the bacon in the microwave oven until crisp, about 1 minute per slice.
- Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion; cook and stir until transparent. Add the spinach and cook, stirring frequently, until most of the liquid has evaporated.
- In a separate skillet, melt the remaining butter over medium heat. Sprinkle the flour over the butter and whisk in using a fork until smooth. Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper; cook and stir until thick. Gradually stir in the milk so that no lumps form, and simmer until thickened. Add the spinach mixture to the cream sauce, and mix until coated. Crumble bacon over the top and serve.

"I thought this was great. I was not crazy about the bacon so I think next time I will use it as a topper rather than part of the dish. I used fresh spinach rather than frozen. Fresh garlic rather t..." See morehan powder. I also added fresh grated parmesan cheese just before serving. I also would have liked it more creamer so I will experiment with that next time."
