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.

Quite tasty! I prepared with fresh red swiss chard and drizzled some fresh lemon juice over the finished dish. The nutmeg and lemon really highlighted the flavors of the dish. Next time, I'll make sure I have some feta cheese on hand as well!
Very good spinach! I scaled the recipe down to half, to feed three of us and there was still quite a bit left over, but that's ok, we will eat this at lunch. Excellent flavours, very rich. We enjoyed this recipe, thanks for posting! Made for Aussie Swap :)
The recipe was reduced to 2 servings and the frozen spinach was used. The onions and crumbled bacon are good and nutmeg really sends it over the top. As suggested in the intro, I did sprinkle some crumbled Feta over each serving. Something I will be making again.
Excellent recipe! I used fresh chard without the stems - I used those in another recipe that I will be posting soon. I used precooked bacon that I crisped up in the microwave. We all loved this! I would use a bit less nutmeg, tho. Made for Aussie Swap 8/08. Thanks!
