Sautéed Spinach Recipe

Spinach seems to be one of those things people either love or hate. Personally, I love it raw in a salad, but have never been a fan of cooked versions, unless it was chopped up small and cooked into a soup.

The problem with that is spinach is so good for you, and I wanted to eat more of it. Enter bacon. I think it might actually be true that bacon (good, quality bacon) makes everything better. So now I’m a fan of sautéed bacon, just like that.

We like to cook this down until it gets nice and crispy on the edges, but is still a bit tender. The variety in texture really helps this dish to be more palatable to those who are otherwise turned off from cooked greens. And also, again, the bacon doesn’t hurt.
