  • 1/2 lb Bacon cut into 1" pieces
  • Spinach a few big handfuls
  • Salt if needed at all, to taste
  • Ground Black Pepper to taste


  • In a large, cold skillet, add the bacon pieces. Turn heat up to medium and cook the bacon until crispy, stirring frequently to prevent burning and sticking. Remove bacon from pan with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  • Turn the heat down to medium-low and. Leaving the bacon fat in the pan, add the spinach. Stir frequently as it cooks. It will significantly reduce in size. If you want more, just add another handful or so.
  • Continue cooking down ad stirring until the edges are slightly crispy. Remove from skillet and serve hot, sprinkled with the cooked bacon bits. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
