Bacon Creamed Spinach

Nothing goes better with a good juicy porterhouse than creamed spinach. Sick of the typical spinach and cream- I made a bacon’d out spinach [this bath eventually had chopped clams thrown in and then re-added into the shell and baked for a end-of-july baked ‘stuffy’

Easy Bacon Creamed Spinach
  • thick cut bacon, minced, sautéed
  • spinach, either frozen & strained, or fresh sautéed down
  • butter
  • minced onion
  • minced garlic
  • heavy cream
  • 1 cup flour
  • salt, pepper
  • pernod [optional]

To make:

in a saucepan, melt down and slightly brown a stick butter, adding about half a cup of onion and garlic, cooking until fragrant

add flour, stirring regularly, allow to cook briefly, then whisk in the heavy cream [i usually add a dash of nutmeg here]

cook and stir over low/med heat until thickened

in the bacon fat, sauté spinach down, and then add to the cream mixture stirring in pernod if desired

add salt & pepper to the taste

Cheers!
