Spinach Bacon Cream Puff Bake

Total Time
Prep 25 mins
Cook 30 mins

I like to cook my spinach in a microwave-safe bowl for about 8 minutes, then run under cold water then squeeze very dry, before I use it in a recipe, it will take the bitter taste out of the spinach, of coarse this is only optional.

This was a wonderful, main dish meal for us. We loved all the combination of flavors and the lightness of the eggs was outstanding! We ate this with a side salad and homemade bread. Thanks, Kitten for another wonderful recipe!

A yummy one dish meal and one of those recipes which really was fun to make. It was creamy and spinachy and wonderfully flavoursome, even with a few modifications to reduce the fat content. I used only half the bacon (middle rashers with all fat removed) which was enough for flavour; I used low fat sour cream (still beautifully creamy); I doubled the quantity of spinach and I added half an onion (minced) and four cloves of minced garlic, both lightly sautéed, then added to the spinach. I didn't use low fat cheese. I only made the mistake of using low fat cheese once; once was enough for me - it was tasteless! I also sprinkled a pinch of nutmeg into the sour cream mixture, and I used only half the melted butter, which worked out fine. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe which I’ll certainly make again!
