Can the fat and calorie count on this be right?!! I sure hope so, because I'm on a diet and loved having bacon and cheese and milk......things I really shouldn't be having! This is delicious. I halved the recipe, and my serving size was 1/4 of that, but have no fear, I'll take care of the leftovers!!! Thanks for sharing!

A tasty side, Gail....The only change I made was to use fresh spinach instead of frozen. Thnx for posting. Made for KcK's Forum.
