Creamed Spinach

Hey everyone!

We recently had a dearth of spinach, and I asked my fiancé whether he had ever had creamed spinach. Not having grown up in the south, he said no, but I encouraged him to make it and now he's made it almost 5 times. It's a fairly standard side in the south, and put those onions and bacon in it, and you're golden!

My fiancé just went off of this recipe here by Paula Deen on the Food Network website, but he then added some crispy bacon and has since modified it to frying the bacon first, then using some of the bacon fat for the onions, etc. Try either way- just depends how much you love bacon!

Here's your spinach after most of your pretty quick steps- just let it wilt down a bit and meanwhile...
If you didn't start by frying the bacon then using the grease for the onions, do that, but if you've got a vegetarian or something like that, just fry your bacon to serve on top.

This is super simple, and a great and delish way to get some greens- try it!
Savor it!
love, rue
