One of those handwritten things, which has been in my folder forever. Since we have a bumper crop of swiss chard, it is appearing regularly on the table. Not German, but I frequently add Feta Cheese when served.

I really enjoyed this spinach! I made it a little differently, but I think it still turned out the same...I sauteed the bacon in a sauce pan and when it was almost done I added the garlic and onions and cooked through. I then drained the grease and added 1/2 the butter to have the flavor and then followed the recipe from there. I didn't have feta so topped with a little parmesan cheese and it was the right amount of saltiness. Was a nice addition to the chicken and pasta I was having. Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #72.

Jane this is awesome with swiss chard!!! Mike noticed the something different in the nutmeg but liked it. I was unsure about that but I will use this recipe for the remainder of the chard growing. I LOVE!!! the bacon addition. I used turkey bacon as opposed to "real" bacon and it was great. I KNOW the real stuff will be better and plan to nuys some to make again his weekend. I have not but will make this with spinach as well. Mike's mom used to do this with endive. I loved it but never knew how to do it before she passed. I bet this is how and will give it a shot. THANK YOU!!!! Made for AUS/NZ Aug 2011
