Savory Spinach

January 28, 2022

Realized today that although I’ve made this countless times I’ve never included it in the recipe list. This is a delicious way to cook spinach. Granted it adds more calories than just using olive oil but they’re worth it.


  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 18 min
  • Other:
  • Total Time: 28 min
  • Servings: 6
  • Yield:


  • 3-4 strips bacon, sliced into thin pieces (I use 3 strips of thick sliced bacon)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped (red, yellow or orange makes a better presentation and adds sweetness)
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, chopped


  1. Place bacon in large stock pot and render (10 min)
  2. Add peppers & onions. Cook until softened (3-4 min)
  3. Add garlic and cook for additional minute
  4. Add spinach. Cook 1-2 minutes, stir and cook until desired texture


  • Made without the pepper for a long time but found that adding it provides a bit of sweetness and color.


  • Too many to count
