This is a fantastic dish that my mom showed me how to make. It is an easy, impressive side dish that will have everyone raving!
- spinach leaves
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 slices bacon
- 1⁄4 cup feta cheese, crumbles
- 1⁄4 cup pine nuts
- The key to this recipe is that it has to be prepared right before serving.
- Prepare the bacon (I like to use the already cooked kind) and crumble it.
- Pour the olive oil into a frying pan and heat on medium heat.
- Add the spinach leaves.
- Once the spinach leaves have mostly wilted, add the bacon and the pine nuts.
- Just before serving, add the feta cheese crumbles.
- The ingredient amounts I have stated above are ballpark figures.
- I usually use a bag of baby spinach leaves for this recipe.
- You can use sunflower seeds instead of pine nuts and blue or gorgonzola cheeses instead of feta.
Very quick and easy... and tastes pretty goodl. I skimped on the bacon and the cheese to make it light and it was still a nice side dish!
I loved this dish.. it's a fantastic and easy way to dress up a spinach side. I omitted the olive oil, and instead cooked my bacon in a pan, took it out and just added the spinach to the bacon grease. I don't like nuts so I made it without the nuts and it was still great. A delicious and simple side dish!
