Loved this:) Easy to make. Didn't have the mushrooms, but will have some next time I do make this. I think that 2 ounces of cream cheese will be enough. The 4oz for a 9 ounce bag just seemed like to much. When I first but the spinach in I thought it was way to much, but boy does it cook down :) Thanks for sharing such a tasty recipe.

Personally I loved this, it was very good. I used tofutti cream cheese and silk creamer, and some Romano cheese. Thanks for this, I'll make it again.

We loved this, I didnt have bacon grease so used olive oil, I also used less cream cheese as it was all I had, the result was still creamy and tasted great. Putting this in my favourite file, thanks for sharing.
